Zombieland was incredible. It managed to stay fresh and new, like a whole different movie, while also feeling as nostalgic as the first one. The series is even more enjoyable than the first one. Although it’s a comedy, there are many times where it evokes heavy emotion. They are also staying true to the first movie by staying a lighthearted, funny movie.
In case you needed another spoiler warning.
Here’s your last chance.
My favorite scene wasn’t funny or stupid. It was the scene where the group meets their first T-800. It showed an evolved type of zombie that’s stronger, faster, and smarter than the usual kinds of zombies.
Review From A Movie Freak
Although I don’t remember it correctly, that sounds about right.
When the group meets their first T-800 Tallahassee fires at it,
But this time it’s different. He avoids the weapons. Tallahassee dismisses it and hits the zombie in its head,
But it gets back up.
Tallahassee fires another shot and another, and more shots, and another.
He ended firing 20 or so shots before he finally stomped on its head. It brought a sense of dread to the group. This entire time zombie had been easy to kill, humorous even. Now there was a real threat; zombies were dangerous. There is a scene that made you feel tense, and that’s not easy to do in a comedy.
This movie was so nostalgic. It brought me back to 2012 when I watched reruns of Zombieland in my room on Syfy after my parents fell asleep. The film captures the humor of the first and makes it even funnier. After ten years of absence, it’s weird as fuck.
10/10, I loved this movie.
Some Other Reviews About Zombieland Part 2
Because here’s the thing: Zombieland Double Tap is pretty much just more Zombieland. It’s a tight hour and a half of a sarcastic ersatz family killing zombies in gruesome and imaginative fashion. Also, telling some pretty funny jokes along the way. Most of the new concepts this film adds to what was present in Zombieland doesn’t matter at all. The film opens with a discussion of types of zombies. However, that’s the last moment those types are relevant. Therefore, it’s just more of four great actors inexplicably acting in a funny film about zombies. However, still, they are having a blast.
If you’re looking for depth, this isn’t it — Double Tap doesn’t even dig as profoundly as the first part did ten years ago. And it’s not like it was some profound and reflective piece, either. If, however, you’re looking for a riotously funny comedy, that’ll do quite nicely. (please see it in a theater fuller than the one I was in because it is weird to feel like you’re the only one laughing).
