Zombieland: Rule #17: Never Be a Hero

As soon as I saw the trailer for Zombieland, I knew the movie would be pertinent to my interests. Mainly because my interests include Woody Harrelson and zombies. I also enjoy humor and people getting hit in the face with banjos. So far, I've seen the film twice. After the first viewing, I gave the film an A- rating, but after the second one I'm going to bump that down to a solid B. Not because I didn't like it (I really enjoyed it a lot) but because the humor doesn't stay fresh. The film is naturally going to draw comparisons to Shaun of the Dead, and quite frankly, the humor in Shaun of the Dead holds up better after repeated viewings. But I'm not going to waste my time comparing Zombieland to its cinematic predecessor, because it's not really fair. But there are two points in which it is fair to compare them (besides the humor). They're both Zombie Romantic Comedies, and they both deal with the issue of agency--or rather, the issue of being the hero.
