Note by LadyAzulMoon: Peace! A little late on posting this…was 😷 😫😷… was mostly done, but I had to touch this up a little bit more than Love 020 and post this, I wanted to make sure I gave all of of thoughts on this one especially since I wanted to see this first before I read the book … anyways presenting…
And interestingly enough, I never watched it until now that it is available for who knows how long on Sony Crackle!
Anyways if you read the original classic…will sum or give the gist of it… it starts with the Elizabeth’s mom learning of a rich bachelor (Mr.Bingley) moving in next door and throwing a party. Bennet siates’ want them to go, hoping one of her daughters will one day marry him or any other potential rich bachelor at his party. Elizabeth and her sisters attend said party and there she meets Mr.Darcy, who she does not get a good impression of. And her impression of him worsens when her sister Jane gets involved with his best friend, who happens to be Mr. Bingley and Darcy interferes who angers Elizabeth cause his interference caused Jane pain. And then she meets the “dashing” Mr.Wickham who tells her that Mr. Darcy cheating him on inheritance. At the peak at Elizabeth hating Mr. Darcy, Mr. Darcy comes and tell her he loves her and wants to marry her. She denies him and tells him her reasons. He leaves but leaving behind a letter to her of all the accounts she accused him of, basically telling her his reasons and her misconceptions… The letter clears this up all the misconceptions and prejudice, pun intended, Elizabeth has for Mr. Darcy…thus this being the true start between them…
From here on too in comparison to Jane Austen’s version since I did read the Pride and Prejudice and Zombies book version yet, the story changes a bit especially to accommodate important parts for 2 hour movie but to squeeze in a shift the storyline a bit to fit the flow for the zombie movie version.
Anyways Darcy’s letter leads to Elizabeth having confrontational fight with Lady Caroline via her proxy lol who doesn’t want her to marry Mr. Darcy. Anyways in the end, Elizabeth won the proxy battle against Lady Caroline. Then news of Mr.Wickham and her youngest sister Lydia reaches Elizabeth. This leading both Elizabeth and Jane to go look for her and take her back from M. Wickham especially Elizabeth now knowing what a terrible person Mr.Wickham is. On their way to save Lydia, Elizabeth and Jane run into Mr.Darcy and Mr.Bingley. This, Elizabeth telling Me.Darcy what happened with Lydia. Without telling her, Mr.Darcy goes to save Lydia for Elizabeth.
Okay I will end my recap here, and move on to my review…
Anyways overall, I enjoyed the film. It is a nice take to this Jane Austen classic with the addition of zombies and it makes me curious enough to want to read the book version of the Zombies adaptation even more. I honestly love Lily James, to me, she played Elizabeth Bennett’s part really well and in this zombie version, she is so badass. Excuse language. But yes, she is totally awesome. Sam Riley as Mr.Darcy did an awesome job as well. I wasn’t sure if I would like him as Mr.Darcy but he definitely proved me wrong because he grew on me. I ended up adoring him too. I recommend this movie if this is up to your taste. If you love the classics and zombies lol 🤗✌️
Anyways if you made it up to here… Thank you so much for taking the time to read my review on the movie version of ‘Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.’ Since I have finally watched it, I can now read the book version which is the adaptation of Jane Austen’s book written by Seth Grahame-Smith. And hopefully write an review on the zombie book adaptation as well. 😁✌️ Please watch out for that.
