Zombieland: Double Tap Review

Every parent knows that one day your children will eventually grow up and leave the nest. Whether they’re going to college, getting married, or running off with some boy they just met, childhood does not last forever. Every parent’s reaction is going to be different, but no matter what, the choices your child make are going to bring out some emotions and reactions you did not expect.

Double Tap also picks up ten years later and shows us what our heroes are up to now – and what type of dysfunctional family they’ve become.

Ruben Fleischer (Venom, Zombieland) is back directing Zombieland: Double Tap after 10 years away from the franchise. Double Tap also picks up ten years later and shows us what our heroes are up to now – and what type of dysfunctional family they’ve become. Now that Little Rock (Abigail Breslin) is all grown up, she wants to experience things that every girl in a non-post-apocalyptic world wants to experience. At her age that pretty much means a relationship, so what does she do? She runs off with the first boy she meets of course. Like any sensible adults, the rest of the family does not see that as such as good idea. Now it’s up to Tallahassee (Woody Harrelson), Columbus (Jesse Eisenburg), and Wichita (Emma Stone) to bring her back home.

The jokes in the film never seem to stop coming but within those jokes you really feel the heart of this film.

Zombieland: Double Tap has a lot going for it but one of the best things about it is how over the top hilarious it is. The chemistry between our characters makes you believe they really have been together the last ten years in the Zombie Apocalypse. Of course, every family has someone that doesn’t make the best decisions, and that’s why our characters must go on this new adventure across Zombieland to find Little Rock. The film does a great job of keeping you interested in characters that you haven’t seen in 10 years. The jokes in the film never seem to stop coming but within those jokes you really feel the heart of this film. These people really do love each other, no matter how dysfunctional their family is.

If you’re looking for something that’s going to keep you laughing, with a simple story and some great (but small) action scenes, then I think Zombieland: Double Tap is for you.

My biggest complaint about this movie is that they spend too much time in cars. And because of that I feel like there’s not enough of zombie action. While the premise of Double Tap seems super simple, it just works. I think fans of the first film will thoroughly enjoy it – especially since there are a lot of call backs to the original. If you’re looking for something that’s going to keep you laughing, with a simple story and some great (but small) action scenes, then I think Zombieland: Double Tap is for you.
