More of the Same, a Blessing and a Curse
21 October 2019 | by PyroSikThSee all my reviews

It's been ten years for us, and it's been ten years for the world of Zombieland too. Columbus, Tallahassee, Wichita, and Little Rock have decided to settle in the White House, and the walking dead have been around long enough to evolve and show diverging behaviours. There's Homers; the stupid ones, Hawkings; the smart ones, and Ninjas; the silent ones, and now there's also T-800s; the super tough ones. Despite this, Little Rock isn't so little any more, and with hormones firing craves a life a little more fulfilling and separate from her Zombieland family. Once again the group are split up and on the road searching for landmarks in the wasteland, meeting new people and getting in to all kinds of problems.

With an already established cast of characters ready to go, how do you keep a sequel feeling new and interesting? Add new characters of course! Coming and going with the group this time are Nevada; the owner of an Elvis Presley hotel, Albuquerque and Flagstaff; doppelgangers of Tallahassee and Columbus respectively, Berkeley; a musical pacifist who's taken Little Rock's young adult attention, and Madison, a ditzy blonde with a suite of great ideas that have already been implemented in our non-apocalyptic world. While each of them are great and add new dimensions to the characters and their relationships, none of them really enjoy the character work the original four got in the first movie. There's no tragic backstories, and growth and development is barely present.

Despite all this, and despite that kind of character usually being a cliché and annoying stereotype, Zoey Deutch somehow steals the show as Madison. It's only when she leaves the group halfway through the movie that you realise how likeable she actually was, and the development of her character was much subtler and requires reading between the lines. Tallahassee remains fairly static throughout, and his relationship with Nevada leaves a lot to be desired, despite both Woody Harrelson and Rosario Dawson always being wins. Jesse Eisenberg gets to show a stronger side to Columbus, away from the bumbling nerd of the first film and more into a guy with a backbone as he spars off against Emma Stone's Wichita.

Talking of which is my biggest criticism of the film. Wichita is reduced to complete unlikeability when she ditches Columbus and the gang without saying goodbye, for an entire month, and then feels entitled enough to blast Columbus for moving on and finding someone else (which is also something Little Rock is guilty of later on). Why can sequels never find an interesting story in a happy and stable couple? Why have they always got to be broken up in order to cause a bit of drama? Splitting Columbus and Wichita up at the beginning and putting them back together for a happy ever after ending feels cheap and like retreading ground we already saw in the first film. Thankfully Columbus has grown a backbone and doesn't take any, but it would've been nice if this wasn't needed in the first place.

Humour is pretty good throughout again, with a lot of jokes hitting the mark, but never quite punching through the target. Madison as a character is a gold mine of jokes, but is never reduced to comic relief, and the introduction of Albuquerque and Flagstaff is full of humourous interactions, particularly the rules/commandments comparisons. There's a lot of more subtle, meta jokes as well, such as Woody Harrelson signing a presidential pardon for Wesley Snipes, why there's still electricity a decade into the zombie apocalypse, and Bill Murray's displeasure at doing Garfield movies.

I wouldn't say Double Tap is better than the first film, but anyone who thought there was a chance of that was deluded. Despite my big reservation with the narrative choice of splitting Columbus and Wichita up, and the humour not quite being as laugh out loud as before, I still thoroughly enjoyed myself. It was nice going back to these characters ten years later, and I hope we get a third movie in another ten years complete with Nevada and Madison coming back for more too. A worthy if imperfect sequel. I would definitely recommend it if you're a fan of the first film, as it's mostly more of the same. I give Zombieland Double Tap a respectable 7/10, on the higher end.
