Launched in 2009, Zumbiland was a striking parody of zombie movies that captured the audience and drew a lot of laughs. With a very specific and closed story, it was hard to imagine a quality sequence (especially given Amazon’s failed attempt to create a series derived from the movie). Ten years later, we have the continuation. Titled Zombieland: Double Tap Twice, the feature is impressive because it can maintain, and perhaps even surpass, the quality of the former.
The plot returns with Wichita (Emma Stone), Tallahassee (Woody Harrelson), Columbus (Jesse Eisenberg) and Little Rock (Abigail Breslin), who during those years between the first feature lived with a – dysfunctional – monotonous family surviving in a world. post apocalyptic. Their lives didn’t evolve much, but the zombies did. There are now different types, which are categorized by their abilities and present new threats.
When Little Rock gets tired of being treated as a child and all this monotony, she sets out on an adventure in search of people her age, forcing the rest of the group to try to find her and, on the way, cross with dangers, new people and Of course many zombies.
By increasing referrals and sarcasm from today’s pop culture, the script can entertain and entertain the viewer. Playing with the relentless wave of work involving the undead and the very success of the first film, Zumbiland: Shoot Twice is a remarkable production, and it is surprising to use the same formula again and get it over with.
The main elements – and even some scenes – are used again here. Famous rules, visually flashy moments, and punctual mockery are back. The new characters appear as a great reinforcement, without taking away the brilliance of the main group, just giving new arguments for the adventure, but keeping the focus on the strange protagonists who have already captured the audience.
Zombieland: Double Tap doesn’t innovate in its script, just repeats what had already worked, gradually growing in the correct points. Proving that lightning can fall twice in the same place – and perhaps do even greater damage – the movie will surely appeal to fans.
