Violent and Bloody Scenes
The film contains frequent depictions of action violence involving zombies throughout the film, where the main characters can be seen fighting, with brief shots of the zombies being shot or slashed at.
Some of the stronger scenes include one of a woman whose head gets shot off; one of a woman slashing off a man's hand with the bloody stump visible; a scene where a man stabs another man in the chest with a sword where the blade of the sword can be seen protruding from the victim's back; etc.
While these scenes are usually accompanied by details such as severed limbs or heads and some bloodletting, they are brief and the acts are usually implied, thereby mitigating the impact of the violence.
There is a large-scale battle scene where soldiers fend off attacking zombies. One of them swings and hits zombies with a large club.
Several zombies' heads explode with minimal bloodletting throughout the film.
Two men and two women fight off zombies with bombs, swords, and an axe towards the finale. There is minimal gore and some bloodletting as they eliminate them all.
Other milder depictions of violence include, but are not limited to, a man killing a zombie with a piece of broken glass and then proceeding to cut its head off with a knife before stomping on its decapitated head, with its entirety being depicted from the blurred perspective of the zombie; A group of women fending off a horde of zombies with knives, swords, and blunt objects with minimal violence in the form of slashing; a woman's gun exploding in her own hand before she begins to fight a zombie and kill it by stomping on its head; a zombified woman with an undead baby; a man getting knocked unconscious after falling down a series of stairs; a man slashing and killing zombies in a dimly-lit room; a brief depiction of a woman with a missing eye, who later wears an eye patch; a man and a woman fighting in a room with their hands, a knife, and a fire poker where their clothes tear eventually [played comically]; a woman fighting a large man [she gets choked violently as she slashes at his face with her nails before breaking his arm, then kicking him, where a piece of the ceiling above them falls on him.]; a scene depicting dead soldiers with holes in their heads and people discussing how their brains have been removed; etc.
The zombies in this film have decomposing flesh and a rather grotesque appearance that reveals teeth, bones, and muscle. One zombie in particular has a chunk of her nose missing and mucus/pus pours out of it.
Zombies feast on a lot of brain matter in one scene, but it is brief and not detailed.
The film is very violent for a PG-13 film, including brief shots of blood and gore.

I'm not a zombie movie fan but I am a huge Matt Smith and Pride & Prejudice fan so I felt the need to see Pride & Prejudice & Zombies. I try to retain the image of MS as the Doctor so I haven't watched anything else he has played in but because the two afore mentioned worlds collided I HAD to see this movie and I was not disappointed! I found it easy to look around the obvious plot holes and simply enjoyed hearing the old familiar lines spoken in such a different setting/atmosphere with MS's performance being the icing on the cake. This movie is not award winning but it is very entertaining and I only had to look away a couple of times.....
