I don’t even have words for how fantastic this was.
This was definitely a long awaited sequel and boy did it deliver! Zombieland: Double Tap is written to perfection, the jokes were timely and the storyline was as simple as the first one. I haven’t laughed this hard in a while and boy did all the jokes land.
Woody Harrelson is one of the best actors of this generation and it’s because he is so incredibly versatile. I personally feel that he should do more comedies because he truly shines with this kind of script. Harrelson and Jesse Eisenberg have wonderful chemistry and Eisenberg doesn’t get the credit for having great comedic timing. Emma Stone was slick and sarcastic which was fantastic with the addition of “Madison” played by the knockout Zoey Deutch. Deutch stole the whole movie, she played the typical blonde millennial and absolutely nailed it!
The writing was so strong and I loved the journey they went on with trying to find a stable home. That’s why Zombieland works, it’s because there’s a heartfelt message under some bloody zombies and wicked rock music.
I want them to make another one in 10 years and try to incorporate as much as they can about the next decade. Zombieland: Double Tap showed the society we are living in now, just by the characters that were added! Such a strong sequel, we definitely need a saga!
