In the world of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, the classic story by Jane Austen is reimagined with a twist - the characters also have to fight off hordes of the undead. In this 2016 film adaptation, directed by Burr Steers, Lily James stars as Elizabeth Bennet, a skilled warrior who spends her days training in martial arts and fighting off zombies alongside her sisters.

Sam Riley plays Mr. Darcy, a stern and brooding zombie slayer who initially clashes with Elizabeth but eventually falls in love with her. Jack Huston is Mr. Wickham, a charming and captivating soldier who may not be all that he seems.

The film takes place in 19th century England, where a mysterious plague has caused the dead to rise from their graves and attack the living. The upper class, including the Bennet family, have been trained in combat and survival skills to protect themselves from the zombie threat. However, tensions arise when a group of aristocrats led by Lady Catherine de Bourgh (played by Lena Headey) attempt to remove the Bennet sisters from their home in order to safeguard their own interests.

Throughout the film, the romance between Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy develops amidst the chaos and danger of the zombie apocalypse. The Bennet sisters face challenges not only from the undead, but also from societal expectations and gender roles. However, they prove to be strong, capable fighters who are more than capable of defending themselves and those they love.

Visually, the film is a stunning mix of period costumes, gorgeous scenery, and gruesome zombie special effects. The fight scenes are dynamic and intense, with the Bennet sisters wielding swords and knives with ease. The film also incorporates elements of Austen's original text, with familiar scenes and dialogue twisted to include zombies and martial arts.

Though it may sound like a bizarre concept, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies manages to be a fresh and exciting take on a classic tale. The film strikes a balance between action and romance, humor and horror, and classic literature and modern-day sensibilities. Fans of Austen's original work may be pleasantly surprised by the clever ways in which the film incorporates her themes and characters into the zombie apocalypse.

Overall, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is a fun and entertaining film that will appeal to fans of horror, romance, and period dramas alike. With a talented cast, stunning visuals, and a creative premise, this adaptation is a refreshing addition to the world of literary adaptations.

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is a 2016 romance movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 48 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 5.8 and a MetaScore of 45.
