Posted On August 6, 2021
By now, most of us have seen the new zombie movie “Zombieland,” which opens in theaters across the U.S. on July 22.
The movie, which is based on a true story of a family’s desperate attempt to survive in a remote Louisiana town after a zombie outbreak wipes out most of their loved ones, has garnered a wide range of reactions from fans, critics, and moviegoers alike.
“Zombie” is, however, not without its critics, who say the film is not without flaws.
In an exclusive interview with The Sport Blog, The Sports Fan, a site devoted to sports, movies, and other entertainment, discusses what the critics are saying about “Zombies,” as well as the film’s future.

Make it funny”I really love this movie, but I think it could have been better,” wrote Kevin Kiel, a film critic for the Chicago Tribune.
“I’m also really tired of people being like, ‘Zombie’ is not a good movie, it’s a terrible movie, and it’s not a zombie movie, so don’t bother trying to make this movie good.
But then, why should you care?
What makes this movie great is that it’s funny.”
Another critic, J.W. Williams, agrees with the critic, adding that “Zomber” is not good, and he’s not sure what could have made it better.
“The film’s weak acting is one thing, but the other part of the equation is that this is a story about a family of people in a rural area who are trying to survive,” Williams said.
“We’re not dealing with a zombie apocalypse, but a plague that has wiped out most or all of the people who live there.
I don’t think the audience would care for the movie if the zombie plague were as big as it is.”
Williams also thinks the filmmakers’ approach is flawed, and that “zombies” could have done more to make the movie more relatable.
“There are plenty of movies where the zombies are the only bad guys, and they’re the ones who do terrible things,” Williams added.
“But that’s not what happened in ‘ZomBER.’
There were a lot of other people in the story, too.
It’s not like you see all the bad guys in the movie, or it’s like ‘Gotham.'””
Zom” is a fun and entertaining zombie movie that has earned rave reviews, and will soon be hitting theaters in limited numbers, but it also has critics who think it’s flawed.
“In a perfect world, the zombies would be dead, but instead they’re living on in people’s minds, and we’re all stuck with them,” The Sports Journal’s Ryan J. Reilly wrote.
“And what makes ‘ZombiLands’ even more problematic is that the zombies’ main character is not very funny.
It is not the kind of character that people could actually relate to, especially since he is so self-centered and arrogant.”
The movie’s star, Matthew McConaughey, has also come under fire, and his portrayal of a man who loves his wife and kids has earned him the ire of some of his fans.
“McConaughees love life, which was built on a foundation of lies, lies, and more lies,” the reviewer from the Chicago Sun-Times wrote.
“In a way, this is one of the most cynical movies ever made,” Reilly added.
The critic goes on to say that “Mcconaugheese’ love of lies is just one of many reasons why the zombie invasion is so bad.”
The film is set in the fictional town of “Barton Ranch,” a fictionalized version of a large ranch in the U
