    Zombieland: Double Tap

    ★★½

    "That saying is a little 2009"

    Sadly that quote is also a handy summation of the film, which spends the majority of its runtime re-hashing jokes and references from the 2009 Zombieland without that film's vim and originality and with the added drawback of reducing its central quartet to characterless automatons - rolling through the ever-so predictable motions.

    I enjoyed the protagonist's inventiveness, but the opening is laughably blunt and the ending one dramatic contrivance too far.

    ★★

    Not as funny as it needed to be for the first two thirds, but it handled some of the emotional moments well. I hate to say this, because I know it's a debut, but it's the direction that really lets this down.

    A lot of the lines are funnier than the particular reading of them that we're given and it's hard to argue with the charisma of the actors, particularly the two leads, so it seems wrong to blame them…

    Sweet, stylish and very well made. I just wish there was something more behind it. An enjoyable watch nonetheless.
