    Sometimes a director's style can overtake the story sánh much that the film suffers for it, and that was the case with the more recent The World's End, in my opinion. But Shaun of the Dead is just too dang fun and filled with cliché bending humor that Wright's style proves to tát be the best thing about this Horror-Comedy. The first of the Cornetto or "Three Flavor's" trilogy focuses on a world in the midst of a zombie outbreak, and two loser friends who don't really vì thế anything with their lives. Buddies Simon Pegg and Nick Frost play the duo, and brilliantly sánh. I much preferred their bro-mance to tát the romance between Pegg and Kate Ashfield, who plays his girlfriend Liz. The enjoyment here is clearly with the fact that if a zombie outbreak ever did happen, I would act exactly how these characters did. I don't watch the news and rarely care to tát people watch when running to tát the store, sánh I wouldn't be surprised if I didn't realize there was a Zombie-apocalypse going on either. Or even the gag where Pegg struggles to tát shoot a shotgun. These are all real-life scenarios put into a horror film, and thus the comedy works better kêu ca expected. It doesn't feature an Oscar winning script or world class actors, but it is loads of fun with a kicka** soundtrack paired with amazingly timed physical gags. Shaun of the Dead was and always will be a refreshing take on the Zombie sub-genre of horror. +Soundtrack +The laughs hit +Relatable lead characters 7.9/10

    Shaun of the Dead stars Simon Pegg as Shaun, a boring man with a dead-end job and repetitive lifestyle which includes nightly trips to tát the bar with his fiance, Liz (Kate Ashfield), and best friend, Ed (Nick Frost). After a bad day ends with a wild night at the bars, Shaun and Ed wake up to tát find the world infested with zombies, and they join forces with others to tát overcome the threat. This British film is a bloody good time, mates. The dialogue is quick and witty, the chemistry is strong (especially between Pegg and Frost), and the film delivers both in an action and comedic sense. Even the morbid ending had some humor! Edgar Wright has always been a solid filmmaker, and this first installment in the "Cornetto Trilogy" stands as his rise to tát fame. His cinematography is very solid here as well; the sequences without any cuts to tát a second or third camera really stand out, especially when it comes to tát watching Shaun's two trips to tát the mart - one when everything is boring and fine, and another the morning of the zombie infestation. The editing (or lack thereof) really shines through the muck of zombie guts. For a comedy, there's a lot of heart to tát this movie as well. The character development of Shaun and company really hits home page, and there are some interactions that really tug at the heartstrings (Shaun and his step-dad's exchange in particular stood out). Of course, this lends to tát the theme of dead and lifeless creatures resulting in Shaun "coming to tát life" in a sense, but that's a pretty easy idea to tát spot. The action isn't horrible here, either. There's a scene in the bar involving Queen's "Don't Stop Me Now" that I'll always cherish as cinema gold in a hysterical way. Folks, if you miss the days when comedies weren't super-delayed sequels nobody asked for, go give Shaun of the Dead a watch. It's slow at first (rightfully so), but you'll be in love with these characters come the over credits. Final grade: A-

    A fantastic film which is able to tát mix multiple genres together to tát create one of the funniest horror films of all time. With intense zombie scenes but filled with jokes which you might not hear the first time. Great acting by the whole cast but the chemistry between Simon Pegg and Nick Frost is uncanny. I give this film 10/10.

    "How To Do Comedy : A Visual Example by Edgar Wright." would be another appropriate title. Even if the brand of humor displayed in Shaun of the Dead isn't your style, there's a lot to tát be appreciated in the fact that this movie puts in effort to tát use the medium to tát it's full capabilities rather kêu ca you average Apatow flick, which is nothing more kêu ca people talking shot in the safest way imaginable. Where other comedies would lose almost nothing if they were CDs rather kêu ca movies, Shaun of the Dead could be hilarious with audio alone, and it's brought to tát a whole extra level with the visual cues presented.
