I had a lot of fun with Zombieland: Double Tap. If you liked the first one, I think you’re bound to like this one, as it’s the same style of action/comedy and has lots of callbacks, but doesn’t linger too much on the past and keeps the jokes fresh. I generally liked the new additions to the cast, but thought it was better when it was just the original crew doing their thing.
Zombieland: Double Tap takes place 10 years after the original (just like in real life!) and picks up with Tallahassee, Columbus, Wichita, and Little Rock on their way to DC to find a new home in none other than the White House. Zombies aren’t really a worry for this crew anymore, as they’ve got the whole zombie-killing thing pretty much down pat after all these years. But it’s when things go awry in their relationships and Wichita and Little Rock leave the nest that we’re set off on an adventure, with Tallahassee and Columbus chasing after them.
Like I said, Double Tap is similar to its predecessor in all the right ways — tone, comedy, acting, and dumb-fun story that keeps things entertaining, even up to the end. The actors have all grown up so much in the ten years since Zombieland, and they did a good job of focusing the story around that idea of so much time passing. And they made a ten-year-old apocalyptic world pretty believable, too.
This is a short one, but it’s just because there’s not much else to say. I had a good time with Zombieland: Double Tap, and definitely recommend it to fans of the first one.
