First-time feature director Ruben Fleischer brings impeccable timing and bloodthirsty wit to the proceedings. Cinematographer Michael Bonvillain captures some interesting images amid the post-apocalyptic carnival of carnage, as when he transforms the destruction of a souvenir shop into a rough ballet.

Mostly, it's just wicked fun.

Warts, entrails and all, I had a ball at Zombieland. It's 81 minutes of my kind of stupid.

The Globe and Mail (Toronto)
Modestly clever, this is definitely a little thing. Enjoy.

At the bone, Zombieland is a polished, very funny road picture shaped by wisenheimer cable-TV sensibilities and starring four likable actors, each with an influential following.

The Hollywood Reporter
Falling closer in tone to "Shaun of the Dead" than "28 Days Later" or the George Romero movies, Zombieland has its tongue planted firmly in its rancid cheek while still delivering the visceral goodies.
75
Guilty-pleasure movies should not be underestimated. I had a scary-fun-house blast at Zombieland, in which studly Woody Harrelson, nerdy Jesse Eisenberg, sexy Emma Stone and sunshiny Abigail Breslin roam a near-dead world kicking zombie ass.
75
It also boasts one of the funniest, loopiest Woody Harrelson turns in years.

Who would have guessed such a funny movie as Zombieland could be made around zombies? No thanks to the zombies.

Wall Street Journal
An improbably delicious comedy.
60
The action-comedy Zombieland works because it's played with an emphasis on the living, not the undead.
50
Yet, even at its worst, Zombieland is better than most movies of its kind - disgusting but not too disgusting, and with a few laughs.
