    A Great Mashup Film

    |
    Posted .
    Owned for 3 weeks when reviewed.

    A mashup is the combining of two or more unrelated elements. In this case, the well regarded 1813 Jane Austen romantic novel with the horror of zombies. Despite this nightmarish world, the characters play it straight, such as some of the fine ladies having formal tea while also sharpening the concealed knives they have to carry outside the safety of their homes. An action-comedy, this film works surprisingly well, as long as you don't take it too seriously.

    My wife and I the just released Pride and Prejudice and Zombies on DVD. I loved this movie and more importantly my wife enjoyed it as well. And she is not a fan of the zombie genre of movies. But to be clear, this movie is a comedy horror movie loosely based on Jane Austin’s Pride and Prejudice. The story revolves around the young ladies of the Bennet family, Elizabeth (Lily James), Jane (Bella Heathcote), Kitty (Suki Waterhouse), Lydia (Ellie Bamber), and Mary (Millie Brady). In this version of 18th Century England, the countryside has been ravaged by a zombie outbreak. But amid the carnage and eating of brains, life goes on and young women must endeavor to marry well. To better survive the ravages of the undead, anyone with means sends their children to the orient to learn fighting arts. The wealthy send their children to Japan, and the wise send their children to China. The Bennet girls are alumni of the Shaolin temple. And where in previous incarnations of Jane Austin young ladies are playing harpsichord and doing needlepoint, the young ladies of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies are seen sharpening swords and cleaning flintlock pistols. They’re also seen training for and engaging in combat with the legions of the walking dead. I believe that Screen Gems has made a mistake in marketing this movie as an action-horror film. Yes the action sequences get a solid 9 out of 10. And the special effects are equally as good. But the truth is this movie is absolutely hilarious. It’s funny because aside from adding zombies, kenjutsu and shaolin boxing, the writers kept everything else as faithful to Jane Austin as possible. I’ve seen the BBC’s 1995 Pride and Prejudice starring Colin Firth and Jennifer Ehle quite a few times and much of the dialogue is identical, indicating that both versions stayed close to Jane Austin’s original text. When real dialogue from the Pride and Prejudice is given while girls are cleaning muskets and sparring, it becomes gut wrenchingly hilarious. I would recommend this movie to anyone who enjoys their action, comedy and horror with some classical literature mixed in.

    An Ideal Cast In An Imaginative Adaptation

    |
    Posted .

    The book version added zombies to Jane Austen as exaggerated parody of the archetypal romance novel. The film plays everything with exquisite sobriety. If a plague of the undead had struck Regency England, here's how the Bennets, Mr. Darcy, and Lt. Wickham would have handled it all. The cast could have starred in an absolutely straight adaptation of Austen, they're all that good. Lady Catherine's a very different, but a quite valid take on her ornery ladyship. Wickham's evil quite transcends the cad Jane intended, but understandably so. Unlike The Asylum's history pastiches, the fully flavored art direction in this movie does justice to the Regency world Austen and Georgette Heyer fans know. The combats work beautifully, particularly Lizzie and Darcy's more-than-verbal sparring. I would willingly see a sequel, given the cliff-hanging ending.

    A new classic like you never seen before

    Jane Austen could of never believe that one of her novels could turn up like this. Pride, prejudice and zombies takes up a whole new level of one of the most beloved classics of our time. Mr. Darcy takes it to a whole new level. Instead of being a romantic he becomes the hero. A warrior beyond our wildest dreams. Though the zombies he face are unmatched he knows how to track them. He maybe there only lead to stop them. Though the main character Elizabeth Bennett(nickname Lizzie) she seems to be with the battle all the way. Though mr. Darcy takes his job very seriously it seems like Elizabeth might have another story entirely. She see zombies heads on and she can track them when she least expects it. Though we normally don't see a girl hero in movies and Tv shows its seems like Elizabeth know what's she's doing. With her family undercover with weapons inside their stockings and shoes there ready for anything that will cross there paths. The Bennett family daughters are ready to face any zombies that they can see and they will stop at nothing to kill them all. Though the Bennett daughters try to keep there identities a secret it is never that easy. Even they face the battles by themselves there still unmatch for the zombies powers. Still as always in the novel Elizabeth distests mr. Darcy she still has her ways to keep her family army a secret. Still they try to keep a low profile it is still a little harder than it looks. Mr. Darcy seems to know how to make a dramatic entrance and stop any zombie that he can sense we know that he's ready for anything. Elizabeth Bennett may know how to kick but with any zombie that cross her path she may underestimate mr.darcy at his own battles and strengths. Though Elizabeth still hates mr.darcy she must put her feelings aside and join him to stop the battle of zombies beyond there wildest dreams. The Bennett sisters may have met their match but they will never stop until all the zombies are dead. Will they be able to face the battle by themselves or will they unleash their enemy army that will stop them before it's too late. This battle maybe something that mr.darcy would never expect but who knows he might surprise you. Elizabeth Bennett might do the same thing but she seems to be the women hero of this story. Join mr. Darcy and Elizabeth Bennett in the story of one of the true American classics that has a whole a new twist of the story of pride and prejudice.

    Not too shabby

    I really feel like the people that rated this movie poorly either didn't see the movie and just wanted to give it bad press, or had no idea what the movie was about. The acting and effects of the movie were beyond my expectations, and as far as the storyline, it was Pride and Prejudice. I love the book and movie Pride and Prejudice, I also love zombie movies so this movie was the perfect fit for me. That being said, I feel that this movie would appeal to anyone who enjoys the zombie genre. I had a lot of fun during this movie, I was pleased that it didn't take itself seriously, yet I enjoyed the depth of the characters. I equally laughed and jumped at the shocking moments throughout this movie, and enjoyed every moment. I also must include that I almost didn't see this movie, because of the bad reviews. However, I am very glad that I didn't listen, because I feel like since this is a beloved classic book with zombies people may be upset that this movie was made in the first place. I am a huge Jane Austen fan, I find it a refreshing fun take on the storyline.

    A Reverent Retelling Of The Original... NOT!

    Posted .

    This movie was considered a bomb at the box office, but it's highly underrated in my opinion. I think the problem was that a lot of Zombie fans are not Jane Austen Fans, and most Pride And Prejudice fans are not into Zombies. I enjoyed the book Pride and Prejudice and I happen to love zombies as well. This movie managed to capture the main themes of the Jane Austen classic, with the addition of zombies. I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was a very smart and funny movie. I predict it will be a cult movie classic. It's going to take awhile for regular folks to recognize the genius of this mash up, but they will eventually. .

    A new twist on Jane Austin

    |
    Posted .

    Be prepared for a zombie apocalypse with a Jane Austin twist. The dialogue is quite English. The filmmakers did a great job combining Austin's wit with zombies. In the same vein as Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter. One of those movies that could be likewise become a cult following. Worth seeing and buying for your collection.

    When Jane Austen first wrote her iconic 1813 novel Pride and Prejudice, she likely never imagined that it would be one day reimagined with the undead integral to the plot. But Burr Steers' modernized, genre-mashing take on Seth Grahame-Smith's novel Pride and Prejudice and Zombies breathes life back into the Regency England setting by populating it with the zombies. The balance does work well for the project, even if it takes a while to settle into cohesively telling both sides of the story. One unfortunate scene with a zombie snot sets the movie off on the wrong foot, but by the third act Pride and Prejudice and Zombies has melded its Austen side well with its undead one. In this world, the zombie plague overtook London, sending many members of the British aristocracy to their reinforced country estates to protect themselves and their families. In addition to teaching their sons and daughters propriety, they also trained them in the arts of fighting -- wealthy daughters were sent to Japan to train under their masters, while "wise" parents, as Charles Dance's Mr. Bennet described himself, sent their children to China. This immediately sets up a modernized take on the story.

    Best way to broaden the Jane Austen Audience.

    My wife loves Jane Austen, my daughter and I do not. So when Pride Prejudice and Zombies came out, we were excited. It can be quite gory in parts. The dialogue is true to Austen, but the setting is pure Zombie gore. It was fun to watch the two collide. Die hard Austen fans may struggle with the setting and true zombie buffs may not appreciate the Austen dialogue, but it is a fun flick and worth seeing for fans of both genres. I would recommend for a fun one time viewing. I would give it 3 1/2 out of 5 stars.

    I was very hesitant about watching this, because every zombie movie I've seen, for the most part, seem to be all the same. Town over-run with zombies and a select few try to save humanity. This one was definitely different. Sounded like it was going be a very uninteresting movie, but with the Era it takes place in, and most of the movie is "normal".. A town with lots of people, not over-run with zombies. Was actually a pretty good movie. I wouldn't have watched it if my daughter hadn't begged me to get it for her!

    I went in to this movie with high expectations, but was sadden by the fact that there were only a few good parts. I was intrigued by what could have been but dismayed by what was presented. It ended like a sequel would be coming. I am not so sure that would be a good thing. Stick to the books. My 12 yr old this is her go to movie.

    This is more comedy horror movie. If you are familiar of the story of Pride and Prejudice, if you really love the story. This moive has a little bit twisted, but fun story! I was smiling when I was watching this movie. I wasn't scare or tense like World War Z. I am not a big fan of Zombies. I thought this is a hilarious fun movie. Something to cheer you up or something..

    I was very surprised to find that this movie followed the original concept of Pride and Prejudice. I originally thought it was going to be about a bunch of zombies and a bunch of people dressed in Victorian clothing. It is much more than that, it takes the original storyline ads the element of zombies in a way that's not cheesy. The only reason I'm giving it four stars is because of the ending.

    This movie is ridiculous and if can except that I think you can really sit back and enjoy this movie. The action and acting are just good enough to keep me interested from start to finish, just barely. I categorize this as a guilty pleasure. I recommend watching this although you probably won't tell your friends you did.

    I have the be honest: I went in to this movie expcting to roll my eyes at every moment, but I was pleasantly surprised at how well written and acted this movie is. My only criticism is that I would have liked this feature to have been rated R. It would have been better for it. Finally, see this movie, you'll like it. HDR makes it better.

    Interesting Combination

    According to my wife who has seen almost all adaptations of Pride and Prejudice, the storyline seems to follow the book, except of course for the Zombies. I have little to no interest in the original book by Jane Austen, but with the addition of Zombies, the movie was sent to a new level. Overall an interesting adaptation to the original book.

    Interesting take of this Classic Film/Book

    Posted .

    I'm not a fan of the original Pride and Prejudice, but my wife loves the A&E version. I am aware of the characters, plot, and etc., so this caught my eye. Follows the original story line close and the zombie twist is cool. I enjoy zombie flicks and was pretty pleased with this take of a classic.

    Fun twist on classic literature....

    The title sequence makes the Zombies much bigger than the Pride and Prejudice part which isn't really accurate but the setting, the cast and the film are all fun and well done. I read the book after seeing the movie so now I can compare but with 3 books I do hope for a sequel. More of these fighting ladies will be nice.
