Zombieland: Nut Up or Shut Up

In a Post-Apocolyptic world, where Mad Cow has morphed into Mad People (Zombies), there are only a hand-full of living people left in the United States, maybe the world.
As the actors meet up in this film, they don't go by names but are known by their intended destinations. This allows them to keep at a distance, in case someone turns into a zombie.
The cast is :
Woody Harrelson as Tallahassee
Jesse Eisenberg as Columbus
Emma Stone as Wichita
Abigail Breslin as Little Rock
Columbus is the narrator of the story and keeps a list of how to survive in Z-land:
  • 01.Cardio
  • 02. Double tap
  • 03. Beware of bathrooms
  • 04. Seatbelts
  • 07. Travel light
  • 17. (Don't) Be a hero
  • 18. Limber up
  • 22. When in doubt know your way out
  • 31. Check the back seat
  • 32. Enjoy the little things
Woody Harrelson as Tallahassee is the absolute best part of this movie. On his quest for Twinkies and killing Zombies, he is just absolutely hilarious. Jesse Eisenberg also did a very good job as Columbus, his awkwardness makes you wonder how he's survived all this time but his list tells the story. There is also a cameo by a well known actor that makes for some fun scenes, but I don't want to spoil it. Jesse Stone and Abigail Breslin also did good jobs in this movie as sisters who stick together and trust no one else. They didn't stand out as much as Harrelson and Eisenberg, but they definitely added to the movie.
I would definitely recommend this movie for a witty and fun, highly entertaining, shoot-em up Zombie movie.
