Though P&P&Z is uneven and could have used more visual wit than it gets -- it's shot like a fairly standard underlit action-horror movie -- it mostly works.

The zombie crowd may be bummed by all the talking and prancing about. The Austen crowd is, well, not typically into zombies. But if you're in the sweet spot in the middle, it's oddly moving. And peppered with zombies!

The problem is that the movie offers just enough to tantalize both fan groups -- the Austenites and the horror fans -- but not enough to fully satisfy either.

... looks like someone mashed up a Zombie 5K with a Renaissance faire. It shouldn't work, but by sheer force of will and a game cast of actors, it's wonderful.

This adaptation of the spoof novel Pride and Prejudice and Zombies ditches some of the book's darker elements to make a streamlined female-empowerment story.

Plucky and vulnerable in equal measure, [James] never forgets that this is just meant to be cheesy fun and clearly has a blast with her role.

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies laughs at action cinema as a genre that has always left women in a weaker standing. [Full Review in Spanish]

The film isn't more than an effective joke and a mix of high and pop culture. [Full review in Spanish]

[With] many of the zombie hi-jinx full-bloodedly straight, this has much to enjoy for horror fans.

A great zombie romance film that won't offend purists of any genre. [Full review in Spanish]

Pride And Prejudice And Zombies stays watchable enough, because - for all its conceptual absurdity - it's mostly played straight rather than for laughs. It's not very good, but nor is it cringingly bad.

We will never know for sure but chances are Jane Austen would have approved of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
February 25, 2016
Frequently very funny and almost always absolutely tongue-in-cheek - but it looks like we'll have to wait a bit longer for the movie which really gets the balance right in presenting a combination of classic drama and high-concept fantasy.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10

The incongruity of the ludicrous marriage genres - period romance & zombie horror - deserves praise for chutzpa and the execution of the film is of a high standard

Steers remains affectionately faithful to the characters and the structure, it's just we've got a few zombies thrown into the mix, that's all.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is almost a lot of fun. It works best as a girl power fantasy, and really flies when it finds the courage to flout literary precedent.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies does exactly what it says on the tin, rather entertainingly too, especially if you have seen one too many tasteful television adaptations of Austen's work.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

Only a camp Matt Smith as Lily James's unwanted suitor raises any laughs. The rest of the cast escape with their pride in tatters.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

It isn't subversive or satirical, but it is good fun with broad appeal.
Full Review | Original Score: B-
February 12, 2016
This is a one-joke movie, but it sustains that joke pretty decently throughout. Ironically, zombie fans are likely to be more outraged than Austen fans.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
