Really, what can I say about this film? It’s one of those movies that everyone knows, and everyone loves, and no one is going to convince anyone of anything by writing a review about it.
The movie is great, it’s an instant classice. It transcends it’s own origins, and despite being a British comedy, it was a smash hit in the US and around the world.
It’s smart, it’s well directed, it’s well acted, blah, blah blah.
Ok, look. It’s a horror-comedy about a lovable loser who gets caught up in the zombie apocalypse. And despite this rather simple plot, it also has an amazing amount of humanity and character exposition and development about it. It does more than it really has to, and because of that, and many other reasons, I love it.
I’m sorry this review isn’t much more, but like I said, there’s not a whole lot to say that hasn’t already been said. Also, to be completely honest I put this movie on to relax after a week-long business trip, followed by a 12 hour day back at work, and a day of racing around doing errands…so forgive me, but Daddy needs his rest, his brain is fried.
