PRIDE & PREJUDICE & ZOMBIESprideprejudicesmall1

I am a fan of the original book. You know, before the horde of the undead was added with the 2009 parody novel. Truth be told, I recently re-read the novel and remembered I wasn’t a big fan of this take on the classic Jane Austen tale. So, I wasn’t sure how exactly I was going to enjoy the film adaption.

As soon as the film started I immediately found myself unhappy… THIS wasn’t Pride & Prejudice… wait.. this ISN’T Pride & Prejudice. This is a parody… After telling myself that I was able to stop comparing it to it’s predecessor and actually enjoy it for what it was: a campy, bloody, and overall entertaining flick which delivered laughs, jump scares, and one hell of a sexy fight scene.

Zombies or not, Lily James is a superb Elizabeth Bennet. Regardless of if she is a strong-minded country girl or a highly-trained, zombie-killing warrior Elizabeth is a strong female character. She not only speaks her mind but she also does not allow anyone to bully her or make her submit to something she does not want. I felt this film and James stayed true to what Elizabeth Bennet is as a character. Plus the actress brought that little extra fierceness that made Bennet such a bad ass and believable as a warrior; all the while remaining charming and likeable. Actually, most of the women in this are portrayed as strong ladies capable of delivering a ass-whooping and less likely to come off as a damsel in distress. Hell, they even made Elizabeth’s sister, Jane, tougher than her romantic counterpart Mr. Bingley. At least that’s how it comes off the little we see him fight.
