Quotes

[first lines]
Elizabeth Bennet: It is a truth universally acknowledged that a zombie in possession of brains must be in want of more brains. Never was this truth more plain than in the recents attacks at Netherfield Park, in which an entire household was slaughtered by a horde of the living dead during a whist party.

Gordon Bennett!
26 February 2019 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies should had been a fun mash up but it takes itself too seriously.

Burr Steers seems to be overawed by the Jane Austen novel itself and was maybe too respectful.

It is love in the picture pretty 19th century England. The Bennett sisters have learned martial arts in the far east because surrounding them are zombies.

Elizabeth Bennet (Lily James) is fascinated by the humourless and disapproving Mr Darcy (Sam Reilly.) He is a dedicated zombie killer who uses flies to detect the undead.

Mr Wickham is one of the charmers of the Bennett sisters who has sinister intentions. He believes a breed of pig eating zombies and humans should be living side by side.

The action scenes are a bit of a disappointment. The tone is uncertain, it should had been bizarre and funny. Matt Smith gets it right as Reverend Collins, others are just too deadpan.
