This whole film is great, and even better after watching classic zombie films. The amount of witty dialogue here is incredible - with so many points of reference as well as relatable content to view here. The film is somehow over the top, yet still realistic - allowing us to see ourselves relating with the characters. A great development, and even touching moments. Even adding real gore work to top the film off.
Fun, but I find myself liking it less and less each time somebody wants to watch it. Part of that is how much of a jerk the protagonist is. The first time I could enjoy the whole metaphor about his undead life and limited prospects, but he gets on my nerves. Now I feel like I'm sitting through it just to get to the end. Oh, no! I've become him!
A homage to Romero, an unofficial sequel to Spaced and a director feeling out his style on the big screen. It's jarring when the film goes from goofy comedy throwing vinyl at zombies then shifting to family deaths which is like a red light coming on that things are meant to be serious now. Frost and Pegg are friends in real life so the chemistry is a no brainer on screen and the best laughs in the zombie apocalypse.
The film suffers from all the shortcomings of 'buddy movies', at the start being terribly irritating. Of course, afterwards the fun starts all over again, but the duo Pegg - Frost is more fun in "Hot Fuzz". I must admit, however, that Wright has a great feeling for cinema - the editing is excellent.
Honestly it outlasts it’s welcome and turns predictable zombie siege at the end, but the first hour is funny and very British with dry wit and great visual gags. It actually seem sometimes like a fanboy’s film too as if someone felt that there where no chance for ever to get a follow-up to «Army of Darkness» so they put Simon Pegg in the role of the K-Mart seller - and should he not have ended up with Yvonne instead?
