Verdict: Well, this is going to be simple. If you enjoyed the first "Zombieland" like me, odds are that you're going to enjoy its sequel as well.
My concerns going in to watch "Double Tap" were twofold. One, I was nervous that the overabundance of characters would get in the way of the chemistry shared between the four leads. And two, I was scared that the movie would suffer from what is commonly known as sequel syndrome, meaning that it would use the same formula as its predecessor to work. And while my second worry was met to some extent especially in its third act that once again really brought the comedy to a halt, I have to say that one of the standouts was newcomer Zoey Deutch, who plays a character that could've very easily gone the annoying route but thanks to the actress' comedic talent quickly becomes a fan favorite along with the returning Woody Harrelson. Other than that, the film was fun, nothing more, nothing less. It's no masterpiece or anything near that, but I had a good time and frequently laughed despite its lack of creativity. And when it comes to movies such as this one, that is all that matters.
