If only Darcy and Elizabeth (and everybody else around them) could dispense with the secrets and circumscribed ‘proper’ nonsense, the path to happiness would be far more comfortable. The sheer absurdity of their mannered culture is the basis of much dry humor here, just as the original.The interplay between various characters is very often amusing, only occasionally irritating.

His super-wealthy/super-snobbish Aunt is a legendary zombie fighter who has the unfortunate habit of setting her Ninja warrior servants on anybody who unduly offends her idea of one’s proper place.

Elizabeth of course qualifies, by her mere existence and later by daring to be interested in the nephew, she has penciled in as the future husband of her sickly daughter.

But she and her equally guile-free love will also, after much turmoil, make a go of things.

The 3 younger sisters aren’t particularly memorable or important characters, though willful and aggressively shallow Lydia gets into abundant trouble. —a social-climbing, superficial, self-centered moron (in other words, she hasn’t changed a bit from the novel’s first version). He is also, of course, a wonderfully brave and skillful killer of the undead.

And that’s a problem—not necessarily as a narrative choice, but from a technical perspective.

What differentiates “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies” from its literary source material is its big action sequences, but they’re staged, lit, shot and edited in such muddled fashion, it’s often difficult to tell what’s going on.

All that means is that Elizabeth must periodically take time out from zombie hunting to dispatch several of the luckless Ninjas.

A final confrontation with the not-so-fair Lady Catherine herself is inevitable and proves satisfying.

There’s no visual context to the assaults and no way to determine their source or size, which depletes these scenes of their tension, making it impossible to become engaged.

Sometimes this is intentional, as in Steers’ frequent use of blurriness right at the point of when a zombie is about to devour someone, but it doesn’t work in those instances, either.
