There aren’t much zombies in Zombieland. The illusions of the grandeur of a zombie-infested world have escaped the movie in its first hour as my interest in the movie started to wane, then pick up, then wane all over again; just like the intermittent appearance of the undead in this newest comedy. But fun is fun, and what’s irrational will remain irrational. Zombieland doesn’t fortify the magic of movies but gets it point across pretty clear: don’t act on impulse or else you might just shoot the next big important celebrity.
