'Zombieland: Double Tap' review: The humour and zombie-violence will keep you glued to your seat
Stone, Harrelson and Eisenberg clearly control the narrative and pick up from where they left off.
Columbus shares how he, Tallahassee (Woody Harrelson), Wichita (Emma Stone) and her younger sister Little Rock (Abigail Breslin) were content with their isolated life at the White House, till he found the Hope Diamond, which he used to ask Wichita to marry him. But Wichita and her sister leave in the middle of the night, leaving behind an apology note.
A month later, Columbus and Tallahassee bump into a dumb blond, Madison (Zoey Deutch) who they bring over to their hiding place. Soon after, Wichita returns with the news that her sister is missing, and she needs their help in locating her. The group’s search for Little Rock leads them on an adventurous, exciting and nerve-wracking path. As the broken family chase across the US, they discover more survivors and also encounter numerous zombies.
One would have thought director Ruben Fleischer had shown us everything he could in the first film, but that is not the case. The film has ample humour and zombie violence to keep you glued to your seat. Stone, Harrelson and Eisenberg clearly control the narrative and pick up from where they left off. The new cast additions are interesting but relegated to smaller sub plots. The film is chaotic, fun and has plenty for first timers and fans of the franchise.
