  • Marina Antunes @ Quiet Earth
    • Excerpt: Though the fight sequences are well choreographed, there aren’t enough of them to qualify this as an action movie and there isn’t enough of the heart that makes Austen’s story a perennial classic to really sell the drama. While it’s initially fun to watch, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies gets tediously repetitive in its structure of Austen-zombies-Austen-zombies ad nauseam.
  • Blake Crane @ BlakeCrane.com
    • Excerpt: Perhaps Austen had the right idea by leaving zombies out of her novel…
  • Mark Dujsik @ Mark Reviews Movies
    • Excerpt: [I]t constantly forces us to wonder why the damned zombies are here in the first place.
  • James Jay Edwards @ FilmFracture
  • Sarah Gopaul @ Digital Journal
    • Excerpt: ‘Pride and Prejudice and Zombies’ is an adaptation of an adaptation that delivers its own take on the classic mash-up by further rewriting history and clearly defining the line between good and evil.
  • Susan Granger @ www.susangranger.com
    • Excerpt: Feebly fanciful reimagining of Jane Austen
  • Vadym Grygoriev @ kinoblog.com [Ukrainian]
  • Courtney Howard @ Sassy Mama In LA
    • Excerpt: This isn’t your mother’s, grandmother’s or great-grandmother’s classic reinterpretation.
  • Ben Kendrick @ Screen Rant
    • Excerpt: Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is unwieldy horror-comedy – delivering an amusing but gimmicky blend of Regency-era romance and zombie mythology.
  • Jeremy Kibler @ The Artful Critic
    • Excerpt: Jane Austen won’t roll over in her grave but might have actually gotten a kick out of this half-genteel, half-nutty diversion.
  • Benjamin Kramer @ The Voracious Filmgoer
  • Mike McGranaghan @ The Aisle Seat
    • Excerpt: Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is one of the best adaptations I’ve ever seen. It perfectly captures the unrelenting awfulness of the book it’s based on.
  • Pat Mullen @ Cinemablographer
    • Excerpt: PPZ’s blade is not as sharp as its wit.
  • Frank Ochieng @ SF Crowsnest
    • Excerpt: Steers’ somewhat choppy but inspired ‘Pride And Prejudice And Zombies’ provides an imaginative and slightly insane spin on the austere exuberance of Austen’s classic romancer. Zombies’ gives off a bizarre but refreshing vibe when distributing its wacky brand of subversive feminine liberation.
  • Stefan Pape @ HeyUGuys
  • Kristy Puchko @ Comic Book Resources
    • Excerpt: If you’ve built a romance on a chemistry that is as engaging as a damp sponge, you’ve failed. But writer-director Burr Steers has other cinematic sins to answer for.
  • Nuno Reis @ SciFiWorld Portugal
    • Excerpt: Portanto, entre o guarda-roupa e os cenários de época, as mulheres belíssimas que mostram as ligas e os decotes, os zombies feios que criam armadilhas e os imensos homens caricaturais, dá para passar um bom momento assistindo ao romance quase intemporal tornado num filme de acção fora do comum.
  • Frank Swietek @ One Guys Opinion
    • Excerpt: Flat-footed: as difficult as it is to imagine that a mash-up this absurd could be dull, the movie manages to be a snooze.
