Mubeen Nisar, Staff Reporter

Ten years after the original, Zombieland: Double Tap did not disappoint. The comedy will bring you back to the memories of your past as you relive the enjoyment of seeing your favorite zombie killers back in action. The four main characters: Columbus (Jesse Eisenburg), Wichita (Emma Stone), Little Rock (Abigail Breslin), and Tallahassee (Woody Harrelson) are on a mission once again.
The movie starts out with the characters finding a home, the White House. At first they enjoy their time messing with every artifact they can find, but the girls begin to become burdened by their troubles. Little Rock wants to be with people her age and Wichita is put off by Columbus’ proposal. They leave without notice taking Tallahassee’s favorite car, ‘The Beast,’.
Dealing with their absence, the guys don’t have much to do. They go to the mall and find a new friend, Madison, who has been living in the Pinkberry freezer. After a few weeks, Little Rock runs off with her new boyfriend, Berkeley, and Wichita is forced to come back home bringing the news. The group then sets out on their mission to find Little Rock. After finding out about Columbus and Madison, Wichita messes with them the whole trip.
During the journey, they encounter various obstacles they have to overcome as a team. Car troubles, arguments, and various zombie attacks, makes the group realizes they have to work together. They also discover a new type of zombie, the T-800, which is stronger, faster, and harder to kill. They also deal with making and losing friends along the way.
The group makes some progress by tracking Little Rocks whereabouts to Elvis’ home. They go there and find she has already left, but make a new friend in Nevada, who becomes Tallahassee’s lover. They get back on their journey and end up in Babylon, a millennial hideout where guns are banned and the people live a peaceful lifestyle.
When they finally find Little Rock, they realize she needs to be with people her age, after talking about wanting to one day leave on a journey alone, Tallahassee says his goodbyes but quickly comes back to warn of a massive zombie attack. The team, along with help from new friends, takes on the massive heard of zombies and in the end perseveres. They even help Tallahassee achieve his goal of getting “Zombie Kill of the Century”.
Overall, I would give this film a 9/10. Being able to relive the fun of Zombieland ten years later was a great experience. No matter what type of movies you enjoy, you’ll be sure to have fun watching this. Though the film was amazing, it might not be suitable for young children as it becomes apparent from the start that there is a lot of blood and gore. All being said, fans will cherish this sequel and hope to someday get another
