AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: Pride and Prejudice and Zombies manages to wring a few fun moments out of its premise, but never delivers the thoroughly kooky mashup its title suggests.

Movie Info

A zombie outbreak has fallen upon the land in Jane Austen's classic tale of the tangled relationships between lovers from different social classes in 19th century England. Feisty heroine Elizabeth Bennet (Lily James) is a master of martial arts and weaponry and the handsome Mr. Darcy (Sam Reilly) is a fierce zombie killer, yet the epitome of upper class prejudice. As the zombie outbreak intensifies, they must swallow their pride and join forces on the blood-soaked battlefield.

Critic Reviews for Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

All Critics (191) | Top Critics (43)

The movie strives to be both scary and funny but winds up being neither.

February 29, 2016 | Full Review…

It's entertaining at first that our heroine and hero can slay zombies as expertly as they parry quips but the joke wears thin.

February 14, 2016 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies does exactly what it says on the tin, rather entertainingly too, especially if you have seen one too many tasteful television adaptations of Austen's work.

Top Critic

Despite its production values, the film plays like a 1990s Comic Strip Presents spoof. It is lively and entertaining early on but once we get accustomed to its strange mix of gentility and blood-letting, the magic dissipates.

February 11, 2016 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

This seems like it's just laughing at Austen. It feels like anti-fan-fiction.

February 11, 2016 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

If it had been more elegant in its storytelling, it could have been a fun genre crossover, but the best efforts of Steers and his cast can't turn the overstuffed book into a film that makes any real sense.

Audience Reviews for Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

Better than it had any right being, but still not very good.

It takes itself seriously as an Austen adaptation... but as a zombie movie less so. "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies" may sound like a tonal nightmare (at times; it's close), but a charismatic/ game cast sell it for more than it should be worth. It's actually pretty fun.

Pride, Prejudice ... and Poor Directing. The story is fresh and enticing, but the direction is inexpert in this would-be period flick. The actors are hamstrung by inept direction, middling costumes and a clear unfamiliarity with period ambiance. From the plainly 20th century brickwork of structures in multiple scenes (is this a hipster coffee shop?), to the inexplicable Japanese handle wrap on swords used by 19th century Englishmen, to the bizarrely anachronistic London setting, "Pride & Prejudice & Zombies" is a confused mess. I both wish it were better, and wish it were worse. As it stands, the film is not satisfying from any perspective.
