One of the best movies of the year, as well as one of the funniest.

Fleischer is after only one thing: to entertain the pants off of you.

For rambunctious laughs, you can hardly beat Zombieland, a pedal-to-the-metal mix of ghoul gore, smartmouth humor and filmmaking savvy.

Zombieland is a juicy, bloody and hysterical escapade that breaks all the rules -- even when everyone in it is trying to follow them.

Zombieland succeeds because it doesn't aspire to be anything more than a smart, well-produced action flick with snappy dialogue and memorable characters.

Strap in for this one kids, and remember to avoid bathroom breaks, because Zombieland has arrived and it is going to chew up your eyeballs and spit them out.

Zombieland is an hilarious jaunt through a futuristic America ravaged by a contagion that has changed all but a lucky few into flesh-chomping predators.

It is never properly scary. Mostly, it is just very silly, but because the film knows it is silly, it's all rather infectious and not the big, cliché-pumped bore it might otherwise have been.
Mal Vincent

September 22, 2014
One of the more witless movies of the year -- a failure both as a comedy and as a horror entry.
Jay Stone

It's a zombie movie. It's a teen romance. It's a comedy. It's a hunt for that most elusive of snack foods, the Hostess Twinkie. Welcome to Zombieland. Watch out for marauding cannibals, and fasten your seatbelts.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

Zany, brainy and drop-dead funny, Zombieland is a marvel that might be this year's best horror film as well as its best comedy, rolled into one ooey, gooey mess.

September 22, 2014
A smart, snarky take on battling the undead, this comic horror-thriller pokes fun at pop culture and piles on the gore.

Zombieland falls somewhere between affectionate parody and straight-up horror movie, but it keeps getting confused about what sort of movie it wants to be.

This well-rounded lark by first-time feature director Ruben Fleischer deftly juggles violence, humor and heart for a friendly, disarming package that still delivers the horrific body count that genre fans hunger for.

Wants to be nothing more than (yes, bad pun straight ahead) a bloody good time, and director Ruben Fleischer delivers exactly that with gusto.

Warts, entrails and all, I had a ball at Zombieland. It's 81 minutes of my kind of stupid.

It's slick, glossy and engaging, if nowhere near as clever as zom-com Shaun of the Dead.

Zombieland is downright delightful.

Woody Harrelson has a rip-roaring time in this comic splatterfest as a redneck from hell who is out to kill zombies. It's the kind of genre acting that doesn't get much notice, but it's a gleeful rampage of a performance.
Will Leitch
June 22, 2013
A fun little romp, a mashup of "coming-of-age" and "zombie movie" that has enough of the latter to make up for the relative limpness of the former.
