Zombieland: Double Tap (2019) (BLU-RAY/DVD REVIEW)
DIRECTED BY: Ruben Fleischer
Starring: Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Emma Stone
RATED: R/REGION A/2:39/1080P/NUMBER OF DISCS 2
AVAILABLE FROM: Sony Pictures

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.

Zombieland: Double Tap once again takes us into an adventure with the gang that we loved so much in the first movie. Only this time around Little Rock is growing up fast and her need to meet someone and grow has caused her to venture out alone while the group (dealing with their own issues) soon follows out to find her. This time around the zombies have evolved a bit and some are a lot harder to kill, so they deal with that as they venture out. While it is fun to check in with the characters we loved from before and we do see new characters to go along with them this time around, I think this one ends up being pretty solid but nowhere near as good as the first movie was. That could probably be expected by most, but I’m just wanting to make it clear that this movie never reaches the level of the original.

All the characters still do the fun stuff we enjoyed from before. The rules are still in play and fun. The movie does have some nice gore and the CGI isn’t overbearing when it happens. But I think the plot still feels weak in the thick of things and I don’t think we ever really have a moment where anyone feels to be in real danger. I think we needed more tension and thriller elements to go along with the funny stuff. Yes, the funny stuff is funny, but a little more drama in spots wouldn’t have hurt. This one feels more like an old band playing all their old hits rather coming up with anything new to really build the legacy. It’s worth a watch, but you’ll want to stick with the original movie.
