Pride and Prejudice and Zombies Review: Horrifically Elegant
Pride and Prejudice and Zombies features a 19th century England that has been plagued with the dead walking the earth and eating human flesh. Despite the harsh environment, the citizens continually to go about their daily lives; with the exception that many of the inhabitants are ready to fight the zombie hordes. Such is the case for the Bennet family where all the daughters have been trained to be fighters. This is especially seen in Elizabeth Bennet (Lily James). Elizabeth is content on being a warrior and not someone's bride. However the heroines resolve is put to the test when Elizabeth meets the hardened soldier: Mr.Darcy (Sam Riley). As romantic turmoil inflict both Elizabeth and Darcy, the two must also deal with the zombie problem; which continues to escalate as the days go by.
It may be safe to say that my experience with Pride and Prejudice and Zombies was not a daunting one. On the contrary the film exceeded my expectation. The film is by no means flawless as sporadic storytelling and character direction hurt this horror flick's presentation However with a strong concepts, engaging characters and stylish aspects, this movie made up for any shortcomings that plague it. In the end Pride and Prejudice and Zombies was fun and thrilling; making this zombified blockbuster truly one of a kind.
