Austen's classic tale of the tangled relationships between lovers from different social classes in 19th century England are collided with zombies … let that one sink in.
There’s not much to say about Pride, Prejudice and Zombies besides the fact that the title explains itself. It's England, lovers and zombies and that’s about it. When the zombie outbreak takes hold of the land, the two upper class prejudices must join forces on the battlefield and take out the dead. Yes, it’s prosperous and rather silly from beginning until end. There’s a romantic love story meshed with decaying bodies throughout.
A fun Valentines treat? Meh, I’d say go to Deadpool or bing The Walking Dead instead. Nevertheless, PPZ hits some exciting fight scenes throughout the madness of the Victorian period. Lily James, Sam Riley, Jack Huston, Bella Heathcote, Douglas Booth and Matt Smith all take a slice at the dead. Yes, there were some fun moments out of its premise, but none enough to satisfy fans of the original story nor fans of the zombie age. In the end, PPZ ends up being a PG-13 bloody funeral.
PPZ is rated PG-13 (Parents Strongly Cautioned). For zombie violence and action, and brief suggestive material.
