I cannot think of one single thing that I would change about this film. The acting is incomparable, the directing deft, and the writing poignantly brilliant.
Like the great film, it's made with a great deal of visible affection both in front of and behind the camera.
Very good movie overall, highly recommended. Most of the negative reviews don't have any merit and are all pollitically based. Give this movie a chance at least, and it might give you a different perspective.
You'll be alive with laughter, glee, and even some social commentary after watching Shaun of the Dead

Waking up one seemingly normal morning, an aimless slacker and his best friend find their London suburb overrun by flesh-eating zombies raised through unknown means forcing him and his friends to gather together and get them to safety away from the deadly creatures.This turned out to be one of the most enjoyable zombie efforts ever. Among the numerous positives here is the absolutely hilarious and gut-busting comedy that comes from several really funny sources, giving this some rather varied sources of comedy. While there are some hysterical physical gags when they stumble over things, trip-and-fall or just get bashed with objects all over the body, there's a great deal of wordplay throughout that leaves this incredibly humorous especially with the way that a lot of these events are added alongside the absolutely clever manner this one undergoes towards lampooning and spoofing the genre. The early repetition of the two days where they replicate the same story only with the zombies approaching on the second day inconspicuously, the ability of the new-reporter to give them the abilities needed to save themselves with their reports and the utterly creative and hilarious method of imitating the zombies to cross a massive swarm preventing them from getting to safety which all tends to turn traditional zombie fare into rather respective jokes and gags. That is another enjoyable facet here where this one takes the whole manner of treating them so seriously that there's a great threat from the zombies where they're absolutely considered a deadly serious threat that isn't made out to be a singular joke, which makes this so fun by allowing these two factors to co-exist together quite easily. Along with these, the film also has a lot of fun here with the rather exciting and action-packed encounters with the zombies which are spread throughout here as there are some utterly fun situations ere, from their encounter in the garden debating what kind of vinyl records to use as ammunition, the rescue of his parents as well as retrieving his girlfriend from the zombie hordes, the absolutely crazy attacks as they attempt to get into the bar and the film's finale where they are under siege in the bar from the numerous zombie hordes breaking through the barricades into an overall extended, action-packed flurry of bloodshed, dynamic encounters and even a nice touch of pathos to make for some exemplary moments here. Together with the fantastic zombie makeup and great gore, these here are enough to give this one some really enjoyable elements here against the one lone flaw here. That comes from the rather lame way this one keeps pounding home his family strife, letting it run for far too long turning it into overkill. Otherwise, there's not much really wrong here.Rated R: Extreme Graphic Violence and Extreme Graphic Language.
I don't know why this movie is so highly rated. In my opinion this is a very ordinary movie, nothing special. I didn't even find it funny.
