Movie Reviews

  • Jim Jarmusch's undeadpan comedy is laconic, lugubrious and does not entirely come to life, despite many witty lines and tremendously assured performances by an A-list cast
    3 of 5 by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian ]
  • even a killer cast and some glorious undead support can't elevate Jarmusch's baggy bluegrass zom-com into the zombie canon; too many scenes in "The Dead Don't Die" miss those magic moments, fading out without moving the story forward or gleaning a laugh
    3 of 5 by Phil de Semlyen [Time Out London ]
  • a sweet and bloody snack; At times, the deadpan of Bill Murray and Adam Driver becomes, well, a bit deadening, and true wit is in short supply, even though the film remains amusing most of the way
    by Todd McCarthy [The Hollywood Reporter ]
  • a sluggish but knowing zombie comedy; Tilda Swinton's sword-wielding Scottish mortician reanimates a lethargic Jim Jarmusch zombie comedy that has more brains than bite
    Review rate : B- by David Ehrlich [Indiewire ]
  • a disappointment from Jim Jarmusc. The film falls apart under its own misuse of fine actors, though there are some smaller star turns, and it never lives up to its promise
    2 of 5 by Jo-Ann Titmarsh [HeyUGuys ]
  • "The Dead Don't Die" fancies itself a cutting-edge macabre comedy, but the truth is that it's behind the curve of pop culture. That's why it's a disappointing trifle
    by Owen Gleiberman [Variety ]
