Woody Harrelson is Zombieland’s backbone and testosterone. Jesse Eisenberg makes it accessible and... millennial. Emma Stone is arrogant, witty, and easy on the eyes. Can’t say that Abigail Breslin rocked my boat, but she can act. The protagonists make a few friends along the way, including Madison, a dumb, bubbly, superficial chick played by Zoey Deutch, and Avan Jogia, the hippy.
The writers understand that we couldn’t care less about zombies, in this day and age, and we spend time with humans instead. The zombies we meet usually have some sort of significance. They’re interesting characters we’ve seen in their human state, for instance, or they have some kind of skill. Loved that long shot in the second act; the action scenes were all brilliant. Great ending, too!
This is a slapstick comedy that just happens to have monsters in it. Double Tap constantly mocks Zombieland Part 1, which was itself a parody. Suffice it to say you should see both films. While it feels, at first glance, like a copy of the first installment, Double Tap, in fact, surpasses its predecessor. It’s smarter, funnier, and it’s not redundant.
