Complete waste of time.

But this movie is just so painfully bland.

Easily among the worst movies I've ever seen.

Maybe a 'comedy',but I look at it as a 'meta-comedy', that tries to be funny by using typical cliché scenes from other movies.

I did chuckle again towards the end when Mr. Driver said " I read the script, that's how i know it's going to end badly" And the UFO part was completely off the wall and unexpected.

Totally unexpected.

Some very funny moments, great cast, the 4th wall breaking is a little boring.

It was just boring.

And with the ever-entertaining Tilda in the mix (Tilda is Tilda!

Z is for zzzzz .

One of THE worst movies I've seen in a long time!

The writing is lazy, the jokes are bland, the acting is something like you would get in a high school drama class.

The worst movie I've seen in a long time.

The writing and dialogue are so bad, and for such big name actors their performances were wooden, and they seemed as bored to be on screen as i was in the theatre.

It's slow and boring, unfocussed, weird and quirky, homaging movies barely anyone (myself included) have even seen.

This movie is boring, slow, I actually fell asleep and won't be watching it where I left it.

Worst Movie I have ever seen!.

The movie is just boring...

There's also Tilda Swinton, Selena Gomez and a multitude of other characters who either feel really underused or straight up undeveloped or pointless.

We really enjoyed it we had tons of laughs and it was fun to watch too the cinema was good

Borefest .

Just don't waste your time.

I think it's an acquired taste, but I personally enjoyed it.

This was by far the slowest and worst movie i have ever paid for in my life in the theaters.

If you didn't like it, you probably fell asleep .

It was as if even the sleepy deadpan delivery of lines was hard to pull off in this untra snooze fest.

Super slow paced and a real pain to watch.

Deadly dull .

All the ingredients were there for a hilarious parody but rather than quick paced punchy comedy the film went for very slow and droll which worked well In places but for a lot of the time was just ponderous.

This movie left me as bored as the leads seemed.

The cast seemed bored by it all, except for Chloe Sevigny.

It is an absolutely pointless, meandering vanity project that attempts to trick you into thinking it's cleverer than it is.

(Iggy pop has a coffee craving zombie gave me life) a majority of this film left me very bored and unimpressed.

Movie is just slow...

The pace is really slow, and there is very little suspense or thrills.

Looked promising with a decent cast but soooo slow and the movie never really gets going.

Fans of "The Walking Dead" will be bored into zombiedom themselves.

Left the theater feeling dooped out of time and money.

Surely it was an effort in trying to make the most boring zombie movie ever made and it succeeded.

A complete and utter waste of everyone's time...

Hell, yeah: great cast, entertaining, funny, a bit of gore, and truly peculiar.

Watched for bill Murray, however everything else was just plain dull.

Sadly it was a complete waste of time and this movie left you asking yourself WTF?

Terrible, unfunny, boring...

But the satirical humor was awfully dull as was the story, action, and pace.

It was slow paced, full of dry humor, and great performances by all.

Created was an advertisement/trailer then as an afterthought put in 100 odd minutes of nonsensical, boring, go nowhere dialogue and scenes, with no point or direction delivered in a dull and unenthusiastic way by a big note cast.

Tilda Swinton also provides a oddly amusing role, and is honestly the only shining light in this dim tale of boring and careless work.

It's point is obvious and simple, but it's way is smart and entertaining.

A dull chronic pain that they were all tired of fighting, and not just because that was what they were apparently supposed to be doing.

I personally love The Dead Don't Die and highly recommend it knowing full well it is one long agonizing deadpan joke (pun intended) that will make many squirm in their seat, and not for the reason you'd expect.

The script was unfunny and most of the conversations were poorly contrived.

The script is so bad it's excellent, funnily serious, full of idiosyncratic characters with plenty of forhead-slappingl one liners and unexpected twists and the all-star cast really pulls it off.

Waste of money,cast,time ,and viewers patience.

Pointless waste of time.

There is, for instance, a scene where the police car is besieged and the scene is stunning to begin with, then a little over long and then in suspension with nothing happening.

Slow and Awkward is the Point.

In the 1hr40 there were maybe 2/3 jokes (very dry humour), both of which could have been hit or miss depending on your sense of humour.

I was open when I went to see this, but it had no story.

They don't use the common 2 to 5 seconds camera angles, there isn't a lot of music, a scene can take up to a few minutes, and conversations are slow.

Really sad to see a good cast go to waste like this, except Adam Driver hes acting is as boring to watch as this movie.

Sure, it can move at a snail's pace at times.

The characters are beyond bland and hallow.

Just felt like watching actors reading a script on a boring movie set.

But yeah, it's this slow paced glum attempt at a satire version of a zombie flick.

What a waste of time and effort by all involved.

First of all there is no plot.

Still, no plot at all, nothing explained (maybe the earth itself) and going nowhere it is one for the geeks itself.

Boring .

I wanted to leave in the middle of it.

The vast majority of the movie is of the cop car visiting the same places over and over in a slow drawn out process.

Its stupid but not in a good way, extremely boring.

Pretty damn boring.

Wanted to like this but it was just boring.

Just plain boring.

It's a trite message that has been grossly overused and loses considerable impact when delivered by actors with net worths in the multi-million dollar range.

Boring and unfunny.

Aimless, slow, rarely funny.

I dont know how I was able to stay awake during this horrific movie.

It's somehow both wry and mundane, and not meant to be traditionally scary or laugh out loud funny.

Way rubbish one of the worst movies this year How it got made is beyond me Ur be better watching paint dry

Just a typical case of a known Hollywood Writer/Director attracting a good cast for an absolute waste of time of a film.

Paternon was the only movie I saw from Jarmusch before watching The Dead Don't Die and enjoyed it quite a bit.

Complete with throw-away ending, this movie feels like a complete waste of everyone's life - ironic, for a zombie movie.

Boring .

If you are in the mood for a chill movie watching experience as opposed to the usual high adrenaline CGI extravaganza, then you should check this one out.

I read people complaining about the pace of the movie,but that slow pace (and even the dark repeating soundtrack, the small town environment, the mysterious vibe in the air, and even the slightly dumb characters and dialogs) really had a Lynch and Twin Peaks vibe.

As slow, as quiet, and as disinterested with story, convention, and resolution as he usually is, if one is buckled in to watch a Jarmusch joint, this is really fun.

Waste of Time .

This was the most "empty" movie I every saw and maybe the worst Bill Muray character, another wasted character would be of Steve Buscemi.

Jim Jarmusch comes off as a pretentious fraud after seeing this movie.

This whole movie is boring garbage.

Totally waste of time .

Just don't waste your time or money on this one!

There are a lot of characters, tension is building, the story seems to be going somewhere, and then it was like the writers got bored and just wanted it over and wrapped it up as quickly as possible.

Funny and thoroughly entertaining.

I like dark comedies and zombie movies, it this had no plot or main story almost like it was an unfinished movie.

Most (if not, all) of the jokes are either repetitive or fall completely flat (mostly because the characters continually state the obvious) and most of the subplots go absolutely nowhere; there's also a supposed plot-twist involving a certain character apparently being an alien, which, yes, is as utterly pointless as it sounds.

Slow as zombie .

To bad, lots of star power just a pointless mishmash of nothing good...

Worst Movie I've Seen in Years .

Of course part of the amusement is watching talented actors play such contrived and silly scenes where they have a lackadaisical reaction to a terrifying zombie outbreak and instead obsess about mundane matters such as hipsters and the title song in the movie.

It was everything I wanted it to be and a little more, a new fresh take on the cliche zombie film that was really enjoyable.

I was bitterly disappointed by the repetition and there was no real content.. not particularly funny, not particularly scary, not particularly sci-fi, not particularly anything really.. couldn't wait for it to end.. people actually walked out of the cinema by mid point.

Slow paced.

There is no plot, few characters badly designed, some things happen without any logical reason...

Really, this movie is so slow and boring I can't imagine someone thought it was a good idea to produce it.

Everyone talks and moves slower then a turtle and it takes forever for literally anything to happen and when anything does happen it not exciting and still the slowest most boring zombie move ever created!

I wouldn't waste my time with it.

Utter waste of time.

It just went nowhere.

Don't waste your time.

The issue in here, is that what was assumed hilarious, is just simply a mundane-bar-talk funny.

It's pure, unmitigated in personal self-indulgence for the writer/director.

You'll either be bored to death or somewhat offended by the end of this film, I don't recommend it.

It was just Boring !

People left the theater halfway through.

Speaking of pointless we get the dead don't die song played in it's entirety 3 times during this movie once for the credit card.

slow and boring...

Absolutely nothing happens during the first 50 minutes of the movie except bland, dry, empty character interactions.

Don't waste your time or money.

Waste of my life.

Dull and goes nowhere .

This entire movie was written as a way to mock people who love the genre and it does it in the most boring, droll, dry, and uninspired way imaginable.

Sad that he wasted a great cast, this was boring and pointless.

Bored into oblivion .

Loads of well known actors but literally one of the most boring and pointless films I've watched.

It was just a bland film.

I shouldve walked out of the theatre with the other 12 people and saved some of the life I wasted sitting there.

A bit slow but the action surprisingly funny and intense!

I found it very slow, boring as and no longer funny.

All the people giving this movie such low scores must either be pretentious, or have watched a different movie than I did.

We are watching events in the small town where two policeman just walk around extremely slowly, talk extremely slowly and act even slower.

Every actor talks like they're slow.

Best advice, don't waste 100 mins of your time on this.

The repetitive use of the theme song did get annoying.

No story, no acting, no fun, no scares, no nothing.

Honestly I think the reason the whole thing moved so dreadfully slow is because they had to find a way to fill 90 minutes.

I like Bill Murray, hes always been a funny man, but this movie is too slow to get to the point.

In both movies nothing happens.

This is definitely not you're everyday zombie film like Zombieland or World War Z, just the top of my head, it is a much more slow and methodical film about characters and their interactions.

Don't waste your time Don't waste your time

So before I set out I'd just like to note that personally I felt very little was good about this particular film and was a bit of a let down compared to what I saw from trailers etc. To begin with, the tone and rules of the zombies/ghouls/"monsters" that are in a way the villains of the piece are wildly inconsistent, dashing from bland horror to comedy and then being fast and loose with the rules of its monsters which negates any and all horror that could've been.

The entire ensemble is wasted, and play their roles as if they were bored to death.

Literally the worst movie I've ever seen to date.

What a waste of time .

Pretty boring for a zombie film .

Thing is with undead movies, they either need to be genuinely funny or fast paced with lots of action.

It was a waste of my time.

It's a very slow movie not worth the money you spent to see the movie!

Utterly pointless .

Boring version of "Shaun of the dead" .

There is no story.

It was (and I can't believe I'm writing this about a Jarmusch movie) cutesy at best, with lots of sassy little moments which clashed horribly with the very slow plot development and dialog delivery.

Maybe it's because Zombie movies are usually pretty fast paced and this was a slow burn.

Plain boring...

Complete waste of time.

Sure, Pointless ?

Everything is sooo slow.

Within 30 min of the movie, I began to realise that it was traveling at a VERY slow pace.

Slow, vaguely promising start that just doesn't deliver .

Boring, slow, unfunny and stupid.

The boring don't get more boring .

waste of time and space .

Don't waste your time.

Very bland performances.

This could possibly be the worst movie ever made and the actors seem to acting ironically as though they are embarrassed to be part of it and are purposefully acting very badly so that folks think- oh it is just a lark they did it purposefully.

"There are a few, inventive jokes, but they only highlight what an entertaining movie this could have been, instead of the anti-climatic, boring drag it turns out to be.

If I had to describe this movie, I'd say it's a pseudo-intellectual attempt to make a zombie movie with a Fargo-style slow pace and dark humor, BUT, it's a complete failure and it ends up being obnoxious, boring, painfully unfunny and leaves me with a sense that the people behind this movie are either mentally challenged, or they've stolen the script from some kids elementary school locker, OR are simply trolling the audience and made the movie this bad on purpose, because it's almost hard to imagine a movie turning out this bad by accident.

The worst movie I have ever seen .

I see that some reviewers are finding the movie slow and boring.

The movie was so boring I fell asleep.

Ultimately this was just such a waste of time.

You could cut them out and the movie wouldn't be any different, which can feel like a bit of a waste as they could have used that screen time for other gags, and focus on the main set of characters, who were engaging and hilarious.

The stilted, banal dialogue suggested considerable improvisation (I was right).

And if you make it to the end, you're rewarded with a narrated statement of the social commentary in case you fell asleep in the first few minutes.

Boring and not funny .

Don't waste your time on this one.

Slow and boring.

Unbearably boring .

Slow, dumb, not funny, script is awfull...

The only engaging aspect of this movie is asking yourself "why?

No real Stoy, actors who are bored in cars, a few effects that wear off after the second appearance, not even a real movie.

But I stuck with it to the end, to the boring, prolonged and boring end.

This hands down was the worst movie I have ever seen.

I loved this, the slow pace added to the deadpan laughs.

Everything seemed inconsistent and annoyingly pretentious - when you repeat a joke for the 5th time it 1.

its a comedy en masse, an ironic view of the superstitious with rednecked caracters and extremely slow paced.

Everything in the movie is slow, dull, and seems to just be meandering its way through scenes.

Zzz

From fracking leading to Earth being knocked off its axis in the opening act to Tilda Swinton's Katana wielding Scot, it's just entertaining tomfoolery.

Still, I thought it was hilarious, and I'm going to go watch it again, because I have some nagging questions about it, but also because I enjoyed it.

And others will be bored when a third person makes the same remark about the possibility that some wild animal had something to do with the victims in a diner.

It's a very, very slow burn of a movie, to the point where it's almost boring.

A bunch of great actors summoned to play in the new and unpredictable movie created by Jim Jarmusch.

The failed attempts at humor are so heavy-handed and contrived that they're irritating, not amusing.

NOTHING HAPPENS UNTIL ONE HOUR IN!

")The problem is this - although many of the characters are engaging, they populate a subdued, disconnected movie that is frequently quite slow.

And for most of the film, I enjoyed it!

All characters start dying , there is no moment where u actually get the feeling, yeahh go for it boyz, no thing like that, muvi starts slow and dull and somehow goes on to be even more dull as time passes on.

I enjoyed it for what it was,a small town hic-zombie retro tribute to Romero's masterpiece Hang your heads in shame.

It's really a shame because all the actors are excellent (especially Swinton and Muray), but it's so drab even their performances can't save the film.

Only thing i could think of during the movie is 'this is probably the worst movie i have watched all year'.

This slowness is frequently linked closely to the comedy.

A boring collage of scenes stitched together for no reason at all.

I can handle slow zombies, fast zombies, even these zombies.

To add insult to injury it also has a pretentious vibe to it and you get the feeling the movie thinks it's way better than it actually is.

It started off slow, boring and very laboured...

In my 50 years of life, i have never walked out of a movie...

The film just dragged on and did not have a lot of zombie action.

The story is too slow and more on talking with dull moment.

Predictable from fade-in to fadeout, "The Dead Don't Die" qualifies as a dry, deadpan exercise in supernatural horror.

Waste of money and time.

When doing just that, I was bored nearly to death; no pun intended.

The acting was terrible (not one character showed emotion of any kind), the movie dragged, and not one line was remotely funny.

..boring. .

Sadly, you'll likely be so bored by that point that you've stopped caring about what's going on.

The movie was unfathomably slow paced to the point of where boredom was starting to set in and you were really to just hold out a hand and let a zombie chomp down on your flesh.

The couple next to me left the theater.

A movie about a boring dystopia.

Boring, bland and pretentous .

It might be worth a watch if it comes to Netflix, otherwise save your money.

It was about as boring as you can imagine and the comedy was completely flat.

Worst movie ever.

Honestly how did the cast really feel about acting in this slow boring movie!

I'm wondering if any of these actors and actresses were either in financial troubled or just plain bored.

It runs for 105 minutes and you could say despite the pretty shocking (and sometimes also surprisingly graphic) key plot point that has zombies kill humans in a small town, it is a fairly slow film.

The twist was good but overall a big yawn.

An hour later, I was bored stupid and couldn't wait for it to end.

Scene after scene of bland unfunny dialogue and not so special effects.

But the many scenes where they aren't, indicate with a heavy hand that we're in pondering (and ponderous) philosophical black humour territory.

I was really disappointed, words cannot describe how dull this film was !

Waste of time and resources.

I am surprised that so many people live such action pack and exciting lives that a real, albeit emotionless, pace of conversation is too dull to be entertaining.

No story, no dialog, no comedy, no scary, no point.

Humble advice, don't waste your time on this

Borefest .

A Very Boring And A Slow Movie .

Huge waste of time.

That's no excuse; that we as an audience have to sit there & eventually nod out for close to an hour - wasting these extraordinary talented actors in a battle of vanilla, bland sarcasm.

Probably the worst movie to ever hit the big screen!

If you die of boredom this movie will finish you and will make you die.

So excited to see, so boring to watch .

The whole film, the characters live very mundane and unemotional, despite what is happening around the apocalypse invented on the idea.

Dreadfully Boring Mess .

The Dialogues are so boring, it is awkwardly funny and the easter eggs are getting shoved in your face.

If the audience look like zombies to you, Jim, it's because you've bored them to death.

Such a waste of time watching this movie

Dead pan comedy is fine but this is dull.

Boring and quite disappointing, i gotta say.

It has a Stella cast in it with Danny Glover, Bill Murray and the rest but it was the most boring film I have ever watched.

No story, nothing happens, except some zombies kill some people.

Slow being the point here.

Waste of time and money...

Maybe next up for an unexpected horror comedy could be Wes Anderson...

On an overall scale, The Dead Don't Die is an incessantly dull, bland & flavourless zom-com that's lazily directed, poorly scripted, tediously edited & sluggishly acted.

Very slow .

This movie is the slowest I have ever seen.

Boring and strange kind of humor

Couldnt have been more wrongThe movie pace is too slow , the acting is terrible and its not funny.

Slow paced comedy!

A boring, bland, and disappointing attempt at a great zombie comedy .

Boring, slow and not funny.

The Dead Don't Die is a waste of everyone's talent and all of your time.

A slow and uneventful letdown .

Sadly "The Dead Don't Die" is not a movie that I will be returning to watch a second time, because it was just horribly boring and so slow paced that even the zombies were going "hey, Jim Jarmusch, you mind picking up the pace?

In my opinion, don't waste your time or money!

Violently boring .

The most uneventful Zombie movie ever .

Nothing happens .

There's no doubt that Dead could've been great, the trailer we first glimpsed of the film showed off its potential and there are moments throughout the film where the likes of Driver and Murray show a great chemistry together that's barely explored and some characters appear at first to be far more intriguing that they're ever allowed to be thanks to minimal screen time and even more minimal moments that matter.

I actually fell asleep twice while watching this in the theater and that never happens.

A waste of time.

By far the worst movie from Jarmusch thus far.

So the cast: Bill Murray, Adam Driver, Tilda Swinton, Danny Glover and etc. Basically an all star cast so I thought this movie was a no-brainer, but I have never seen a more boring, uneventful, absolutely foolish film.

It was slow for a comedy.

It is clear that everyone had fun making this and it is enjoyable to watch.

Slow, predictable, cliched garbage.

The pacing is so slow, the humor is dry, driver and murray trying to break the fourth wall doesn't work.

just totally bland and forgettable, action-heads look elsewhere.

Even Bill Murray looked bored.

This was literally one of the worst movies I have ever seen.

Slow as a week in the jail!

I love zombie films but this was so boring from the begining to my sleepy time.

Looked interesting in trailer but is actually just a slow stupid movie .

Plot-free film that spends 100 minutes going nowhere .

Enjoyable, if you have nothing else to watch.

It is a really nice, witty, but slow movie .

Even when it tried to be a bit odd it just seemed boring in the way it was executed.

The slow dull juxtaposition during an otherwise chaotic event is vintage deadpan comedy.

Really dull in its delivery it only adds to the feeling of wanting to just be done with the movie.

The humor is not funny, it's pointless.

We actually walked out, great cast, poor and pointless delivery...

I think the movie works best in the first half when the tempo is slow.

Unfunny, boring, and simply uninspired, The Dead Don't Die feels less alive than its zombies within it.

Films by Jim Jarmusch are usually cult and slow paced.

Pace of the film is beyond slow there is no comedy I certainly struggled to muster a laugh and the script made no sense in places.

Working In film and TV myself I always try to see things from a perspective of how it was made but this movie could've easily been on Netflix or Amazon but because of the high profile stars that were cast it has gotten a lot of buzz and it was underwhelming, dull and a very pointless movie.

Little slow and more then a little dull .

One of the worst movie ever in life .

The Dead Don't Die is a boring horror comedy film that has a theme message in it which makes it for a dull narrative structure.

The Dead Don't Die, but viewers might of boredom.

The cast ensemble are talented but the script and direction delivers a dull and boring film.

There's no build up, no plot, there is literally nothing.

Slow and boring .

The film is also slow, and though it may be so, it is certainly not average or predictable and oddly enough that what is makes the film the best.

First the movie pace was very slow.

A total waste of money...

It has a slow and relaxing story telling combined with dry/ absurdist humor, like a trashy B-movie.

Don't waste your time.

I'd say about 70% of this movie was just padding and slow, slow protracted scenes of talking about nothing.

Complete waste of my money.

The suggested humor from the trailer is constantly missfiring, dull and repetitive.

It's slow with a stupid plot that goes nowhere.

There would be no heroes, every normal human who is weird or quirky, angry, or downright boring would be affected, and there would be no happy ending.

Now that was unexpected.

Boring, uninteresting, pointless and pretentious.

Fell asleep .

Fans of auteur Jim Jarmusch are often fanatic, loving everything and anything he offers, from artsy "Broken Flowers" (2005) to brilliantly "dull" "Paterson" (2016).

Really awful, save your money!

Mix one part pointless, with one part boredom, an ounce of a good cast and add a pinch of zombies....

It started very slow before any action.

This is a slow paced ("Lost Highway" slow) movie about the lives of a few residents in a urban village.

This was one of the worst movies i ever had the displeasure of watching.

It's boring, monotonous and so lame that if it were a horse it would of been put down after 10 minutes.

At first, I thought that this is going to be something like Ready Player One with zombies, cause the movie had lots of references (pop culture, film, zombie sub-genre ones), zombie ambiance etc.But no, they just bore you to death with slow scenes in the first like 50 minutes (literally nothing happens) and then they just give up.

The viewers have got to be as bored as the actors appear to be by this point, so why not make conversation with them directly?

This movie was very slow and not well written.

But alas, it was slow going and not too much really happened.

It's a bland town with a bland name filled with bland people whose bland conversations focus on doughnuts and pie from the town's only diner.

But the fact is nothing happens.

As for the zombies, the make up is very old school, but in combination with the boring acting it's worthless.

If you want to watch a good zombie comedy go to zombieland or Shaun of the dead, they are far better this is so slow burning and not funny.

I didn't care what happened to these people, to much time was spent on pointless characters that brought nothing to the story.

I think it aimed for quirky but it ran smack dab into dull and stupid.

Actors are sleepy, and it feels they are yawning in utter languidity.

Throughly enjoyed it.

They do throw very basic social commentary at you throughout the movie and in the end, but at that point, you are so bored and angry you just want to give the movie a finger.

Although the film is not completely lousy thanks to a few successful scenes, I was globally bored and disappointed.

Tedious .

The plot was dull and not explained leaving me bored.

With this many stars, so much collected experience and such an easy canvas (everybody instantly knows what to expect of the zombie apocalypse), I was very disappointed with the overall bland result.

Such a repetitive, bone-dry, absurd Monty Python-like humor.

Every body in these just seemed monotone, as if they reading the script off cue cards.

Every aspect, be it the dialogues, idiosyncratic characters, new attributes added to zombies & even the interactions between all has an empty vibe to it, and whatever Jarmusch believes to be funny only evokes a forced chuckle out of us, that too out of respect for the filmmaker.

A few people with like it (everything appeals to someone), other more pretentious people with "like it" and claim if you don't your not intellectual or sophisticated enough for it.

Boring, routine, ordinary, ends with you going to bed.

Nothing happens for the first 30 minutes, get ready for another 1 hour of nothing horrifying or funny

I did have a couple of problems though, the film is a little to slow in some parts it can get a bit stagnant.

Such a borefest.

Boring terrible script typical Hollywood message crap.

Worst movie ever...

Deadpan and darkly funny, a slow builder, great zombies (with a slight twist on the generic), enough zombie slaying action, in jokes and pops at the genre and a great brooding atmosphere throughout.

Very long draw-out scenes with pointless banter.

This movie introduces interesting characters only for them to have absolutely no story arch.

Yea n surely it is waste of time n money

But this was just way, way too boring.

Don't waste your time, seriously .

Again very very disappointed in this film but it was so boring and as I watched I kept wondering what the hell was going on.

One of the worst movies ever .

But soon you'll find out that the movie has no script.

I really enjoyed it!.

But even for that it's dull and boring.

For the first half hour or so I was trying to come to terms with the idea that It wasn't very good, but I had hopes that it might just be slow burning and that the Good would kick in " any time now" Nope.

:DSimply put don't waste your time, this movie is literally nothing, I honestly believe all these people just laughed at us and made up a hoax that they made a movie!!!

There is no plot.

Just don't waste your time with this, I suffered enough so you don't have to!

Half the people watching when I saw it walked out.

Just don't waste your time.

Watching paint dry would be a better use of your time.

Next the film had the most slowest pacing i think i have ever scene in any film.

Made zero sense, goes absolutely nowhere, definitely one of the worst movies I have endured in a long time.

The most boring and uneventful film ever.

Worst movie I've seen all year.

Starts off slow and never picks up.

Super slow with stupid ending.

This is a zombie movie for pretentious arthouse house people who have never seen a zombie movie.

Boring.

Slow.

First 40 minutes nothing happened.

Getting to the movie itself, it does have a very slow build and the conversations may seem dull to some.

Such a bore .

"The Dead Don't Die" is the single worst movie I have ever seen in my life.

Overall there's not really much more to it than a roster of A listers from Bill Murray to Selena Gomez for you to play "cameo bingo" whilst watching along, total waste of time

I don't know what the movie was trying to do, why there is a ufo in there, what is the purpose of zelda, where is the humor, and why is everything moving so slow?

I was looking forward to this one and it's such a shame it was so slow.

Jarmusch stays between 1 and 3 for the whole film, constantly repeating jokes (at first it seemed really fun but then it became so tiresome).

This is a pathetic excuse for a horror spoof, a pathetic excuse for social commentary, and an embarrassing waste of some decent performers' time.

This was probably one of most boring, bland and wasteful ends to a film I think I've ever seen.

It is boring.

It would end the way the film does, exactly the way you would expect it to: immediate, bloody, and uneventful.

Agreed on so many reviews of thos one, if you are sleepy due the slowness it is possible that you will fall asleep.

We have long drawn out scenes where you get to watch people share drinks.

Boring.

Simple story line, some parts really made no sense, the characters were really boring, and the end was expected.

The plot is all over and boring.

Without doubt the most pointless, dull, blaring movie ever made.

Its simply worst movie i have ever seen.

The budget was so low I expected to see power extension leads being dragged across the set.

The zombies are slow and stiff not reincarnated MMA fighters that too many other movies use.

This movie had 2 or 3 minor laughs and other than that, was boring.

Selena Gomez and her friends are equally as pointless.

Weird, watchable, and entertaining .

The pacing of this movie is very slow and boring.

Jim Jarmusch made an awful borefest, snoozefest of the worst kind.

The director that made this has managed to make one of the worst movies of all time.

First movie with Murray in it I thought was a waste of my time.

It might be one of my top 3 most boring movies ever.

Good lord, this movie was SO BORING!

This can be boring for many people.

It's terrible, such a waste of time.

Dull and lackluster...

A quite entertaining horror film!

The pace of the film is extremely slow and all of the characters interact with each other as though they are either slow or just bored.

The humor was very dry and it left you hanging in some places.

boring.

Don't waste your time watching.

Too slow and dull.

Worst movie I've ever seen.

However the crawl like pace of this film and the purposely slow deliveries of the acting made me want to shut the movie off several times.

After getting through one of the most boring, horrible movies of my life; as a joke of the movie or a big FU to everyone Adam Driver and Bill Murray are talking to each other:Adam Driver: this is going to end badly.

Total boredom.....

Overall boring, dull and an unoriginal zombie flick.

Boring .

The meta moments were sudden, and confusing.

The positivesActors play played their parts well, the characters are mostly likeableNegatives The pace is crazily slow the story is a little stop start and mostly dull.

This film was a waste of money and time.

I enjoyed it wasent a horror but more a comedy really worth the watch ddo, enjoy

On the other hand the movie is slow, and that will be a turn-off for so many geeks.

This movie makes an attempt to deliver offbeat comedy by following a formulaic pattern of events surrounding a zombie outbreak.

because this movie was so slow and uneventful it was painful.

I cannot recall the last movie I actually walked out of.

I found this to be enjoyable from beginning to end, especially as I was expecting a boring snooze-fest based on the reviews I had read.

One of the most hilarious and entertaining films I've seen in ages.

Big Waste of time and talent .

I was bored from start to finish.

Really enjoyed it .

Boring bait and switch .

Even as far as deadpan comedy goes, the movie is duller than a drug induced coma, it's pedantic and takes itself very seriously.

I'm shocked, it's probably the worst movie I've seen and I'm convinced I could write better dialogue than this.

It was boring and choppy.

This is so boring and so painful to watch.

It would seem Jarmusch has little love for the genre, essentially offering banal zombie tropes with no new insights or perspective, so one might ask why he went this route.

The film was creepy, quirky, weird, scary and unexpected throughout, and I loved it.

Usually I'm a fan of weird sci fi where just random unexplained things happen like UFOs out of nowhere, random unexplained 4th wall breaks, Justin Bieber, Tilda swinton, they're good fun, mindbending they give you something to dissect but this does this in such a boring mundane way, has such a dull sense of humor and a pointless message and the "theme song" as Adam driver calls it is just a bad piece of music and finally why did they put so much talent in this movie when only bill Murray and Adam driver really do anything

Yeah I get that this is a big satirical commentary on zombie movie tropes, blended in with a big metaphorical commentary on society, and capped with a little diatribe from Tom Waits as the "outward observer", but the entire thing is just SO slow that it's utterly boring.

I used to like bill Murray but now I hate him for making this dull vegan dump of a film.

dont even waste your time with "The Dead Don't Die "except in the BOXoffice""Glad I didnt pay money (even a cent) to see this all of its 1 or 2 days total in theaters.

"Can a zombie film soooo boring?

Pointless characters and waste of film.

What a disappointment, it was weird and not in a good way, no storyline to speak of.

Holy crap, what a waste of time.

Boring even as i watched large portions at double speed to make it end faster.

The first thing that is absolutely brillant is the slow pace and the long shots that remind me of an indie film.

Romero in this funky yet somewhat disappointing zombie comedy about a small-town facing end of the world changes - the earth is off its axis and the dead are returning to life with predictable tropes embedded and underscored (Driver's deadpan police officer's refrain of "This won't end well" and his well-known use of horror lore are key throughout the carnage involved).

The whole thing was painfully slow, albeit with the odd few laughs (Saying that I was the only one laughing in the cinema).

It's contrived and unearned.

Nothing happens.

I watched this because of the cast , but I found it a very strange film, I cannot understand Tilda Swintons role it seemed to have no bearing on the film, what happened to those three kids they seemed irrelevant to the film, the ending was silly, rather a confusing and pointless film, some funny bits.

Slow and boring .

That all may be right, but mostly the movie is just very slow and won't satisfy neither the horror nor the comedy audience.

The Friday early evening screening where I saw this at was not attended well (5 people, including myself), and the ho-hum reaction this movie has gotten leads me to think its theater run might well be over after 2 weeks.

The story was not interesting, the killings were slow and the whole plot?

In fact, the film is unbearably excruciatingly slow and boring.

A pointless, non credible story line.

I literally fell asleep in the middle of it and had to start it over again.

Quite possibly the worst movie I have seen i in years.

Uninteresting, unfunny borefest .

However, the plot has multiple pointless subplots and unnecessary characters as well as a poorly handled message at the end.

This is way too slow and has far too little to make it enjoyable.

In a weird way, this feels like Jim Jarmusch fan service - a slow, aimless collage of short conversations between interesting people, with a scrap of plot for everyone to hold onto, such that they all stay around the same place.

I had never walked out of a movie before .

I wouldn't recommend this to anyone, unless you have a thing for pretentious, wooden, repetitive scenes and screaming "I know that actor from somewhere!

What it doesnt have are action, blood/gore, adrenaline-heart-pumping climax.

It's just making fun of zombie movies, but in the most boring, least clever and least funny way possible.

One of the worst movies I have ever seen .

Dreadful and boring!

save your money and time...

Amateurish dialogue, slow pacing, emotionless acting and ultimately the braking of the fourth wall all add up to an almost perfect satire.

I like many Indie films but this is really a waste of time.

Familiar settings: rural town, colorful people, slow pace.

The movie starts off really slow, as if it wants you to invest in the lives of the characters, and shows us the various townsfolk we know will eventually turn into zombies, because that's what happens when they try to get us interested in totally boring character.

It's a political piece mixed with bored cast .

Trite, Contrived, and Incredibly Boring.....

Waste of time .

This is one of the worst movies I've seen.

It goes nowhere, the dialogs are slow, stupid and boring.

This movie is so confusing.

It's feigns being clever by breaking the 4th wall, but it's far too dumb and dull to be meaningful.

I'll probably end up with it on iMovies or whatever but it'll be an insomnia type movie rather than a I MUST see again, movie.

One of the worst movies ever made .

Entertaining .

I highly recommend it.

I started to fall asleep halfway through, which is very rare, especially during zombie movies.

Don't Waste Your Time .

I mean come on they're slow zombies like in Night of the Living Dead not fast like in Dawn of the Dead!!!

Worst movie ever saw in theaters!

Simply one of the worst movies I have ever seen it is purely only getting one star for Bill Murray and that's because I like him not for his performance.

Don't waste your time.

It was so slow, it fell too much on hipster "comedy" There is an awful song that is played repeatedly that is mean to be a theme song but its too country and boring to be a theme song to a zombie show.

In the town of Centerville, USA (population 768), everything moves a little slower, even the apocalypse.

Don't waste any time on this crap.

Due that fact it makes it slow.

I would liken it to a film school project that received a ridiculous budget, but film school work is seldom this self-indulgent.

The zombie apocalypse is initially depicted as slow and distant, not something about which to be overly concerned, until suddenly there's no escape.

Slow, Meta, Few Actual Jokes; Not for Everyone .

It's a comedic version of all zombie films put together in a slow, drawn out manner with great acting, amazing dialogue and dead pan.

Wow, totaling entertaining.

Don't waste your money.

I LITERALLY had never walked out of a movie before - I hope none of the actors had the chance to read the script and decided to have fun with the director telling him they loved making the movie - otherwise nothing makes sense.

I found it long, boring, and nearly humorless.

Aimless, pointless, unfunny, not scary.

But overall, I still enjoyed it because zombie genre coupled with names like swinton and murray is just too hard to pass up.

The pace was slow and the movie was just to long.

Nothing happens.

Next the film had no plot or character development.

The pace of the movie is sluggish, there's too much time spent on trivial conversations, the fourth wall breaks aren't very funny, there's no plot to speak of, and the ending is weird.

It's really slow, predictable and just generally crap.

Quite possibly the worst movie I have ever seen.

Then it's wrapped up with an absurd "twist", that's done in such a boring way no one will care, and then back to one final stereotype after a little bit of exposition.

These are slow-moving, George Romero type zombies, except that there are just a few of them and you could literally avoid them if you walked quickly and smartly.

Really enjoyed it.

Pretentious, moi.

The front-runner's of the cast are Bill Murray along with Adam Driver and their chemistry really works and makes the movie more enjoyable to watch.

Still, this movie cant get more than a 1 from me, it is simply so boring and horribly written that I cant even compare it to anything.

Don't waste your time, complete trash.

If you are talking about find art and joy in anything, watching my dog pooping on the backyard could also be entertaining.

Now, as much as fascinating it sounds while pitching it on a meeting, to pull it off, requires a whole new element.

If you are writing a comedy, instead of those boring lines, put enough jokes please.

This film nearly had me nodding off, the acting and dialogue was so dull and uninspiring.

I get what they were trying to do, but they needed to cut the dumb slow town folk thing and hurry up with the zombies.

Had all the ingredients to be good, but ended up as a total waste of time.

I enjoyed it, and I think if you enjoyed DOWN BY LAW, or GHOST DOG, you would enjoy this, too.

The only thing worse than this movie are the pretentious reviewers .

Pretentious Zombie Movie .

Apart from a few rare moments, the jokes are not funny, the film is so slow and pointless, the dialogue is listless and without emotion, like everyone has really low IQ.

However, for all that, I enjoyed it.

If you're having trouble falling asleep, as a last resort I'd suggest watching this movie.

One of the worst movies I've ever seen .

There's no build up, no character development, no plot, nothing.

Pointless, boring, just not good .

Overall, I enjoyed it.

The attempt at running "jokes" was equally heavy-handed and contrived, being so unfunny that having to hear them more than once was actively painful.

This trailer it's intriguing and the cast is awesome - I need to see this movie.

Bill Murray and Adam driver were bland and boring there script was terrible and made them seem like dumb characters and poor actors when i know they are not.

So slow and boring it will turn you into a zombie .

So Slow and Boring .

I'm going to start off by saying that I honestly had no desire to see this movie, but my mom dragged me to seeing it with her anyway.

Final Say -With little heart or soul this dead filled horror/comedy hybrid is a massive miss-step for a usually solid filmmaker with Jarmusch failing to maximise his talented cast in an outing that feels like a big waste of time, instead of fun and engaging trip into the bizarre.

This is a boring remake of about 10 different films, and it fails at all of them.

Super slow and a waste of talented cast.

The script is completely asinine, with trite and moronic dialogue often dealing with flawed reasoning and logical fallacies.

Worse than all of this, than everything I've mentioned thus far, is the fact that it's cripplingly boring.

Total waste of money and talent - and your time .

Its horribly slow and boring, zombies don't show up for a good chunk, and then there was a random UFO.

The result is moderately entertaining and I almost think they are going for a "so bad it's good" type of credential.

With the market completely saturated with zombie films you wanna come out swinging and all this is is a borefest, what a dud.

The slow, ironic pace and the dry responses of lead cops Cliff (Bill Murray) and Ronnie guarantee chuckles every few seconds and a leisurely stroll through a ghoulish genre.

Waste of time,top 5 worst movies i ever watched....

The movie is made so slow that it seems to be floating in some thivk, fat, slow treacle.

Waste of talent and waste of time.

A unique take on a dull genre .

I fell asleep four times and wondered why I kept waking myself up.

I get the humor, I get the story, and I get the euphemism.. but.. it's just cliche, and not funny at all.

from boredom.

Slowpaced and boring .

Boring, not funny, no plot...

Waste of a good cast, time and effort.

A few funny things but overall boring.

It was boring, not funny, definitely not scary or horrifying and as already stated, utter crap!

boring.

Save yourself from boredom and regret over wasted time and money and skip this.

For a zombie film, it is pretty boring.

It's painfully slow, aimless and random.

That mentality and the movie being rather boring and poorly written made this such a disappointing movie.

Glad I was playing crazy golf on my phone or I might have blown my brains out it was that boring.

Waste of time .

Otherwise, the humor dries up quick and is dull throughout.

A LOT of people hated it, but I loved it, it had that slow, undertow of humor and serious commentary of life.

Nothing happens in this film...

Cliché on cliché ,so boring.

The humans are the real zombiesStretches the cast too wideShould have focused on less charactersBreaks 4th wall a few times and it works in this filmTilda Swinton plays and alien which is very fitting because she is always compared to oneNo matter what we do about global warming it's still going to end badly just like the characters have been saying the whole filmDidn't need the explainer by Tom Waits at the end already got what the movie was trying to say, was overkillGot a little too predictable at the end

Worth the watch.

This movie is a waste of time - do yourself a favor and dont watch it.

One can challenge the pre-established norms of cinema and, specifically, genre while still delivering a smart, enjoyable and cohesive experience.

More propaganda than movie, stop fracking or else, Trump supporters are racists blah blah blah, just complete Gar-bahj.

There is nothing original here, nothing happens for almost 1 hour and the movie is 1h&40min.

It's filled with propaganda and it's like someones child wrote the script and handed it to their rich and influential parents to have it made.

Slow.

I thought both the stars interviewed (Driver, Murray) and the director came across as diffident and defensive, and I can see why after sitting through their dull, uninspired movie.

This fell flat, was boring and in my opinion served no purpose.

One huge yawn from start to - well, I didn't finish it.

A lot of potential with some very funny moments but sadly just a bit slow .

Still all in all a really entertaining and bizarre watch that is an.........

But after the boredom has turned you into a mindless minion of the brain dead zombie world, try to remember a yawn will result in permanent dislocation!

It really has no plot, or even a consistent tone, and has the pedantic, unoriginal "consumerism makes us zombies" commentary laid out for the audience in unnecessary detail.

I would even go so far as to say even the cast seemed bored.

Who knew they could make a film with this genre so boring!

"The Dead Don't Die" is the slow development of this storyline following several dwellers of this town.

The opening act is solid enough and the deadpan style humour is immensely promising, but about halfway through it just shows all of its cards - it's half-baked nonsense leading nowhere that appears to think it's far, far more amusing, smart and entertaining than it actually is.

A sort of dull, apathetic acceptance to the horrific and odd world events happening around them.

Very slow, little action.

No action, no story, no acting.

but all in all, I enjoyed it for what it is.

It was just a boring stupid ending.

To long, to boring, to irritating, a little to weird and utterly pointless.

Excruciatingly long and boring.

Worst movie I've ever watched.

The comedic bits are uninteresting, unexciting & unstimulating, and the horror bits aren't even there.

The movie is pretty slow paced, no one will ever confuse it with a Avengers movie.

So Im going to say it right now so that we are clear:Most of Jim's films seem like a boring exhibition to me and with the last few years, I think it has only gotten worse.

It's slow paced, actors gave little to no energy in it.

Entire film actually quite slow!

Tedious and boring.

The movie gets 2/10 for camerawork, and effort, but the story and acting is just soooo boring.

It's just stupid, no story, no script, no proper dialogue.

I give this flick a 3/10 just because of the cast, but the story and acting is so stiff, you feel like a 3 year old kid wrote this when he was bored out of his mind.

A total waste of time despite a great cast .

Dull , dull and even more dull, .

+1 for a nice cast of actors, but later all this stars are lost due to: the movie is very slow and boring, nothing happens for almost 1 hour (-2)it's leftist biased (again the evil fracking corporations, if you see someone in a red MAGA style hat, you can be sure he will be an evil guy, etc) (-1)for heroes that appear and die without any reason and sense (-1)for not bringing anything usefull to the zombie movies genre: no survival, no character or social drama (-1).

No plot, no character development, bad dialogues.

Propaganda .

Silly and Pointless .

" The characters are dull, like they don't really like living in that town, as everybody's dead inside already (maybe done purposefully).

Characters enter the story for no reason, for instance 3, 20somethings drive into town and end up dead, we don't see them attacked or anything, pointless characters that brought nothing to the story.

After a whole time of trying not sleep during the movie, i could see that this is the worst movie ever

It's a miracle I managed to stay awake during this film.. I think it was the desperation to get something back for the time I'd all ready wasted in the first 30 mins.

His navigation through the zombie genre is an uneven film, with at least a good surprise like the flying saucer scene and many boring and unfunny moments.

Lack of plot, slow, unfunny jokes, pointless sub plots that never reach completion.
