There’s something to be said for some good ol’ fashioned zombie bashing fun, and Zombieland: Double Tap, the much anticipated and long-awaited sequel to the cult classic Zombieland, has arrived and it delivers some very gnarly thrills!
After the events of the first film, Columbus, Tallahassee, Wichita and Little Rock move to the American heartland as they face off against evolved zombies, fellow survivors and the growing pains of the snarky makeshift family.
The whole crew is back in Zombieland: Double Tap and plenty of mayhem ensues here! Director Ruben Fleischer reunites with stars Woody Harrelson as Tallahassee, Jesse Eisenberg as Columbus, Emma Stone as Wichita and Abigail Breslin as Little Rock all are back for plenty of brand new crazy in Zombieland: Double Tap and if you’re wanting some hilariously gory fun we’ll you’ve come to the right place. This sequel to Zombieland takes what the first film did so well and scales it up a notch and what we have is some hilarious new fun. Fleischer dials up the zaniness here and the result is a truly wild presentation that will have audiences watching on in amazement at how much fun you can have when killing zombies.
While it’s great to see the whole crew back together again it has to be said that Woody Harrelson again steals the entire show here as Tallahassee. Completely bereft of any kind of filter, Harrelson just goes for it with his total non-PC way of living, and while he may be handy with a crowbar and a shotgun, in the time since the first film this hard-living outlaw has come to become something of a family man, and you better believe that it is hilarious to watch. While Jesse Eisenberg and Emma Stone are always dependable performers, and their interactions here as bickering lovers Columbus and Wichita create some guaranteed laughs it’s Harrelson’s role here as the ‘dad’ of the picture that will get you laughing and it’s damn fun to watch.
Along with amping up the world of Zombieland, which now includes a whole new classification of zombies including the likes of Homer’s, Hawking’s, Ninja’s and the indestructible T-800’s, Zombieland: Double Tap also introduces audiences to a new set of characters including the hilarious Madison (Zoey Deutch) and the gun-toting Nevada (Rosario Dawson). As bubbly valley girl Madison, Deutch has somehow managed to survive this zombie-infested world as being more brainless than the zombies and it is hilarious to watch her role take shape as she gets in the way of Columbus and Wichita’s romance. Then, of course, there’s Rosario Dawson’s gun-toting badass Nevada and this wild beauty instantly causes Harrelson’s Tallahassee to become smitten and the results are hilarious to see unwind.
If you’re seeking a lot of wild zombie smashing fun, and a heap of gore to go with it, well you’ve definitely come to the right place with Zombieland: Double Tap, as this motley crew loads up with a whole heap of hardware and moves to blow the hell out of any and all zombies who get in there way. Whether that be by bullets, melee weapons, or even monster trucks, there’s a serious level of carnage going on here, and it all makes for a wild viewing experience. Director Ruben Fleischer goes for the unexpected here with Zombieland: Double Tap and the result is something thoroughly entertaining that audiences will love and proves that when it comes to dealing with zombies…gorier is always better.
Zombieland: Double Tap is a very fun extension of the original film and fans will have a blast with what this team has produced here. If you’re looking for a wild ride, with some kooky laughs and a good helping of grindhouse gore then you’ve come to the right place!
