Zombieland: Double Tap, the sequel to the 2009 hit Zombieland, delivers laughs, lunacy, and a boatload of dead zombies.
Ten years after the events of the first film, Tallahassee (Woody Harrelson), Columbus (Jesse Eisenberg), Wichita (Emma Stone), and Little Rock (Abigail Breslin) are still alive and have become quite skilled at locating and disposing of zombies. They eventually take shelter in the now-abandoned White House. On the surface, things seem alright, but it soon becomes apparent that all is not well. Columbus decides to propose to Wichita, which causes Wichita’s fear of commitment to flare up. Little Rock is experiencing growing pains, tiring of Tallahassee’s attempts to parent her and dismissal of her dreams of starting her own family.
One morning, Wichita and Little Rock set out on their own, leaving Tallahassee and Columbus a simple note saying that they’ve left.
Zombieland: Double Tap was a lot of fun and a perfect addition to the Halloween viewing season. The chemistry between was still there, and I think I actually liked this one better than the original. It was also a nice surprise to see Bill Murray, killed by Columbus during the first film, make a surprise mid-credits appearance. He ends the show on a humorous note, killing several zombies while promoting a third Garfield film.
I give Zombieland: Double Tap three stars.
