Film review:Translated by www.rabudo-ru.com


I’ve heard about this film for a long time. At that time, I was still in my undergraduate course. “Watching movies” was a necessary reading, so even if I haven’t seen many films, I still know what I’m talking about. Shawn the zombie is such a film. Because I learned that it was a zombie film, I instinctively disapproved. Zombies are nothing more than that routine. They are full of flesh and blood, mutilated everywhere and betrayed their relatives… Therefore, I have known this film for a long time and know that the evaluation seems good, but I haven’t seen it until I am bored today. Unexpectedly, it’s not the zombie film in my impression. It’s very interesting and smart. After watching it, I fell in love with it all of a sudden, so I thought of coming up to talk about my feelings.

The protagonist Sean is a guy who has achieved nothing. He wanders around the bar all day. He has the same smell as ED, who has achieved nothing more than him. He wakes up naturally every day. When he wakes up, he runs to the supermarket to buy milk and sugar cones, gives some money to the beggar on the way home, and plays games with ED… Several times when he yawns on the carpet with his bare feet, people think he is actually a zombie. Because of an unknown reason, people in the whole area were infected and gradually became cannibal zombies. Sean and ED and several other friends escaped from death and took risks in order to survive. But this film doesn’t want to create any grand concept of the last hero sacrificing himself for others. Originally, Sean is living a zombie like life under normal circumstances. How much skill can he expect? The scene of that handsome leap over the fence and fall into the mud has clearly reflected the theme of the film’s “anti hero”. On the contrary, when the people around him have become zombies, Sean, who has been tortured by life, is refreshed. Maybe it can be explained that everyone is a little person, even if there are more mediocrity and vulgarity, Maybe it can also reflect a bit of extraordinary character on a particular occasion. However, I think this explanation is too simplistic and conceptualized compared with the screenwriter’s so clever head. Perhaps this is a fun film. I don’t want to explain how profound the meaning is. I just want to break the stereotypes of zombie films and inject a little freshness into this type of film.

I think the black humor of the whole film is the end. When Sean and his girlfriend were going to die together with the zombies and fight their way out, the army that had evaporated for many days suddenly fell from the sky and saved them. Six months later, human beings took the dominant position on the earth. What’s funny is that people did not develop any drugs to reverse the people who had become zombies, but naturally accepted the existence of this “non-human” group. There are various statements in TV programs, because scientists found that zombies still maintain their original interests, So let zombies who like to be supermarket salesmen continue to tidy up carts outside the supermarket; A woman sleeps with her zombie husband every day; TV presenters even feel ashamed that they once taught residents to shoot zombies in the program, and repent of these remarks that trample on human rights… Of course, these zombies are locked. And Sean finally enjoyed such a life and finally got the beauty back. Although his good friend ed became a zombie, Sean still gave him a shelter. They still played games together every day – all their behaviors were the same as in the past, the only difference was that ED was locked.

In other words, at the end of the video, boring people continue to be boring, mediocre people are still mediocre, and everything returns to calm. Maybe this life is too boring. Even the doomsday and zombies have to be dissolved and digested by this powerful boredom until they become a part of it.

I now want to understand why this film is called Shaun of the dead. The protagonist Sean is just one of thousands of zombies. He is not much different from those who have unfortunately become zombies physically. His body is alive and his behavior is dead, His thinking actually stays at the level of Zombies (he can only keep a primitive reflection on his interests). Compared with zombies, I don’t know whether this absurd state of life is lucky or unfortunate. I think maybe this is what the directors and screenwriters want to make fun of, ha ha~

So I want to say that this video is very smart and cute. I like it very much.
