About me

Shaun of the Dead

This was one of the worst films I’ve ever seen. So this really isn’t a very positive review. The comedy wasn’t funny, most of the acting was terrible (save for Penelope Wilton and and Lucy Davis, who played relatively small parts), the horror wasn’t horrific, and the storyline was generally poop. Even the ‘subtle’ background stuff wasn’t subtle – or funny. The film was so bad that I felt I was battling to keep myself from switching it off, just in case the ‘good’ bit was coming up.

I usually like typically ‘British’ comedies, that most of the country fails to understand. This, though, I did not like. It was just bad. A complete waste of ninety minutes of my life (and, even for a film as short as it was, it didn’t seem to have enough plot to sustain interest).

This isn’t a film that’s worth watching, and much less a DVD that’s worth buying. It’s absolutely terrible.
