Zombieland: Double Tap Reviews

Nihilism and the movie's referential mania wear you out. There wasn't enough energy in the first Zombieland to channel into a sequel, and there was little left undone.

It's as if the filmmakers are so embarrassed by their own derivative material that they're trying to hide it with a veneer of hipness, rather than finding ways to revitalize it.

There are some funny lines and a smattering of semi-clever plot twists. But mostly, the movie is stale and sloppy.

The main issue with Double Tap is that it attempts to lean on jokes and stylistic tics that haven't felt fresh in almost a decade - trying to resurrect the lightning-in-a-bottle success of the first unfortunately only leads to a just-okay second round.

Harrelson and Eisenberg do their best to energise the dialogue, but it's all too self-conscious, and self-satisfied, to be playable ... without Deutch's idiot schtick, there'd be nothing to laugh at at all.

Everything is worse in this sequel. [Full Review in Spanish]

If you really loved the 2009 original, by all means add another star to the above rating, while the rest of us ponder why on earth Woody Harrelson, Emma Stone, Jesse Eisenberg and Abigail Breslin reunited for this little-awaited sequel?

Zombieland was funny enough, but in no need of a sequel. Double Tap merely chugs along, even though it has the same director, Ruben Fleischer, and core cast.

After film No 2, it may be best if this franchise doesn't rise again either.

Hit-or-miss follow-up that brings back the original cast of post-zombie-apocalypse survivors just to put them through the same paces as last time.

Amid the mischievous mayhem, it feels more familiar than fresh.

While back in 2009 the first 'Zombieland' felt fresh and fizzy, this attempted iteration comes across as a curiously flat recycling.

Reese and Wernick don't have much to say with their follow-up, which often plays like a series of disconnected sketches occasionally interrupted by zombie attacks.

This resurrection pales in every way to the startlingly enjoyable original.
October 18, 2019
All in all though, bogged down by familiar plot beats and comedy cliches, Double Tap seems destined to become one of those highly-anticipated but mediocre follow-ups that fails to leave a lasting impression.

Like watching a feature-length compilation of deleted scenes and subplots that were shot for the original film.
October 18, 2019
Rote pop-culture slurry.
October 18, 2019
The movie, zippy as it is, houses the kind of misogyny that went out of style around the time the first movie came out... Those dynamics feel rotten given how entertaining the rest of the film can be.

...on the other hand, every minute Woody Harrelson spent making this was a minute I was NOT closer to having to watch "Venom 2," so - thanks?
October 18, 2019
It's a hangout film with little sense of expediency. Even at the story's climax nothing about the movie makes you believe there is any kind of real danger.
