Javo ¯\_(ツ)_/¯’s review published on Letterboxd:
"Take car. Go to Mum's. Kill Phil - "Sorry." - grab Liz, go to the Winchester, have a nice cold pint, and wait for all of this to blow over. How's that for a slice of fried gold?"
What can I say about a film that works like a Swiss stopwatch at what it wanted to achieve? There is no wrong in Shaun of the Dead.
Edgar Wright took the time to develop the exact amount of time every character, to lay down the geography of the film and to show a progression of the story, even the music choices worked. The pace of the film is spot on, Wright takes as from point A to point B, to point C in a smooth and very entertaining manner.
Every character has an arc, it didn't matter how small it was, and the cool thing about it is, all the story arcs paid off, some better than others of course, but overall it was great.
Simon Pegg as Shaun and Nick Frost as Ed, was comedy gold, there chemistry is so palpable, every single scene with this two is amusing and feels relatable.
Shaun of the Dead is not a horror or a suspense film, this is a comedy, even better a zombie comedy, that is clever, entertaining and in the heart of it, friendship, that's what grounds the film to a relatable theme, who hasn't shoot the shit with good friends before? the only difference, here you have zombies!!
