(This is Zombieland: Double Tap film review, which is the sequel to the zombie action comedy from 10 years ago)

Who would have thought that a film sequel about zombies action comedy would come out 10 years later and still features the same original casts! Zombieland Double Tap is now back with our favourite characters, whose actors and actresses have gone on to become famous in their own right in the past decade.

It is directed by the same director of the original film, Ruben Fleischer and features the Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Abigail Breslin, and Emma Stone, and some new casts like Rosario Dawson, Zoey Deutch, and Luke Wilson. Without further ado, let’s jump down into the Zombieland: Double Tap film review below!

 

Premise

10 years after the end of the first film, our heroes are now living pretty well in the zombie infested era. But troubles start to brew when the family is broken apart from the inside. With Little Rock and Wichita leaving due to personal issues, the others will now have to cope with their new lives. But what will happen when a new breed of super strong zombie also start appearing at the same time?

Zombieland: Double Tap Film Review

Premise

The premise is, well, nothing to write about. As this is a sequel that seems to want to capitalise on the popular demand of fans of the original film. So, to be honest, the premise itself is a bit disappointing, and does not offer anything new to the storyline.

In fact, it’s a pity because the script has a big potential to set up for another movie, as it introduces a new type of zombie that is stronger, faster and meaner. But sadly, the film only uses it as an appetiser and chooses to focus on the comedies and action sequences.

Some weed?

 

Whatever that makes the first film interesting is overused in this sequel, so much that I don’t even see much new rules from Columbus. As for the romance, it’s there but it’s a cliché one and also only a minor part of the film. What I will  conclude is that the film does not really know which part it wants to focus on, and instead goes all over the place.

to be honest, the premise itself is a bit disappointing

Pacing

The pacing is at least pretty decent, but also monotonous. There are new things happening at each moment, and those are a mixture of comedic and action sequences, plus a bit of romance. But none of those stand out, so yeah, it’s just decent.

 

Characters

Some party girl??

 

The characters are still the stars of the show, and it helps that Columbus and Tallahasse are still the comedic duo that perform well together on screen. However, it does feel a bit stale when these two are overused to a certain extent.

Sometimes, star powers can only do so much, especially for the likes of them and Emma Stone, in a film where the script quality and storytelling aspect take the back stage.

There are new characters added in to spice up the story, but sadly none of them are prominent enough to stand out, and all of them are laughingly stereotypical. One is a naive white girl that goes all fashion and the other is a weed loving pacifist guitarist.

More doppleganger!

 

Though, there are two characters that are pretty cool and they serve as the dopplegangers to Columbus and Tallahasse. Even though their screentime is pretty short, it creates an interesting flow of change in the film. It’s just a pity they do not stay long enough to make a greater better impact on the film.

As for the rest of the minor characters, none of them deserve a mention as they are there to serve as the uninspiring comedy pieces.

Another Columbus?!

 

Soundtrack

There are still pretty cool soundtrack during the action sequences ala the first film. This is where the film takes it up a notch in a more memorable way, and is one of the saving graces of this film.

3.4
It's Okay
A disappointing sequel with few saving graces.
If it's not for Jesse and Woody's performances on screen, as well as the great action sequences and soundtrack, this sequel would be so bad that only the hardcore fan of the original film will watch.
