Zombieland: Double Tap Review - 6 Ups & 4 Downs

A surprisingly solid, belated sequel.

Zombieland: Double Tap is out now in cinemas worldwide, and it's fair to say that the hype for the belated sequel has been relatively muted despite releasing a solid series of trailers.

After all, how often do 10-years-later sequels actually deliver the goods? Plus, given that director Ruben Fleischer hasn't served up a good movie since the original Zombieland - which, ironically enough, was his directorial debut - it was reasonable to be skeptical about this one.

So it's a pleasure to report that, while not particularly ambitious or surprising in any way, Double Tap is a mostly worthy sequel, a rare delayed follow-up that barely misses a step and delivers more of what people loved about the first.

Though not reviewing nearly as well as the original, the early consensus is that it should satisfy most fans of what came before, and that's totally on the money - this is a snappily paced, gory-as-hell, hilarious ride even if it won't stick around in the brain for too long...
