A decade after Zombieland became a hit film and a cult classic, the lead cast (Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Abigail Breslin, and Emma Stone) have reunited with director Ruben Fleischer (Venom) and writers Rhett Reese; Paul Wernick (Deadpool) for Zombieland 2. In the sequel, written by Rhett Reese; Paul Wernick and Dave Callaham, through comic mayhem that stretches from the White House and through the heartland, these four slayers must face off against the many new kinds of zombies that have evolved since the first movie, as well as some new human survivors. But most of all, they have to face the growing pains of their own snarky, makeshift family.
Review of Zombieland: Double Tap by Christopher Pattison
Arriving 10 years after its predecessor, Zombieland: Double Tap doesn’t disappoint. Director Ruben Fliecher, doubles down on his style, providing great action set-pieces and introducing new rules along with some new characters as well. Newcomers to the cast, Luke Wilson, Zoey Deutsch and Thomas Middleditch provide some great laughs and really pull the new cast together, mixing old with the new. If you were a fan of the original film back in 2009 I think you’ll love this one.

Review of Zombieland: Double Tap by Peter Walkden
Continuing from where we last left our four leading survivors ten years ago, our leads within Zombieland have grown stronger and wiser on how to survive. The zombies which have taken over the world are also advancing, changing and transforming. The new Zombies are becoming more of a threat to all remaining survivors on earth.
The film starts with Columbus, Tallahassee, Wichita, and Little Rock moving into (what’s left of) The White House. Everything seems perfect until one member is no longer happy in the group and decides to take a new path, seeking a new family. The remaining members go after her, travelling to Graceland. As they do so, they will encounter many new zombies and survivors along the way.
I was a massive fan of the original film which featured in 2009. My favourite part of the original movie was the cast themselves and the general creative humour. I’m proud to say that Zombieland: Double Tap manages to be a worthy sequel. Our sequel loves to reuse jokes from the original film, such as the zombie rules of surviving.
Zombieland: Double Tap also manages to add new jokes which should get some laughs, even if the new gags feel repetitive. The film’s structure is also similar, using tactics such as a slow-motion introduction and a big finale battle with stacks of zombies in the 3rd/final act.
Seeing the returning characters alone and seeing them advanced (grown-up) was also a nice touch for fans too. This film feels more like a celebration or reunion at times rather than witnessing a true instalment. The over the top action was also fun, but I found the film’s audio soundtrack slightly forgettable.
Overall, while Zombieland: Double Tap isn’t as firm as the first instalment in regards to plot, there’s still stacks of fun to be had. Seeing the returning characters we fell in love within 2009, with them now taking on a more significant threat of zombies is welcomed and I found myself having a great brainless time.
