Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (2016)

If you want to watch this movie you should stay away from the trailer or at least wait until you have forgotten what was there. Trailer was full of spoilers. I watched it after watching the movie. I don't understand why they wanted to spoil so many scenes in trailer. If the name sounds fun and interesting you want to see this movie.

Based on response I expected something boring where the name was the best thing. It was not. Story was more than lazy joke based on the name. Without knowing anything it kept me hooked for the whole movie. It treated Pride and Prejudice part as parody and Zombie part was martial artists fighting zombies and each others.

I had my reservations about Pride and Prejudice part but I was wrong. I liked it as much as everything else. I remember one review criticising movie not going far enough with the gore. Gore is cut almost completely. I didn't have problems with it. To be honest more gore would have made movie better.

Movie didn't make its money back which means we won't be getting many similar movies in the future. It is a shame. I liked the movie. It is not a masterpiece by any means. It is just fun costume drama zombie action movie. When it was in theaters I had no idea it could be this good. If you think movie named Pride and Prejudice and Zombies could be fun done correctly you should watch it. I think it was done correctly.
