A shy student trying to reach his family in Ohio, a gun-toting tough guy trying to find the last Twinkie, and a pair of sisters trying to get to an amusement park join forces to travel across a zombie-filled America.
In Jumanji: The Next Level, the gang is back but the game has changed. As they return to rescue one of their own, the players will have to brave parts unknown from arid deserts to snowy mountains, to escape the world's most dangerous game.
Foul-mouthed mutant mercenary Wade Wilson (a.k.a. Deadpool), brings together a team of fellow mutant rogues to protect a young boy with supernatural abilities from the brutal, time-traveling cyborg Cable.
One long decade after the post-apocalyptic events in Zombieland (2009), the resilient quartet of survivors--the tough-as-nails zombie exterminator, Tallahassee; his rule-making comrade, Columbus; the free-spirited huntress, Wichita, and her younger sister, Little Rock--find themselves in the bosom of a now-derelict White House. However, in a rabid world still overrun by multitudes of walking dead and mutated strains of evolved animated corpses, a premeditated separation will send the team back to square one, searching, once more, for the promised land. Now, all hope rests on Babylon: an entirely organic commune of blissful vegetarian pacifists who love to party. Is this the end of the road?Written by
The scene in which Columbus stands on top of an RV, directing Tallahassee and Wichita to which direction the zombies are coming from, came from the final battle in an early draft of Zombieland (2009) which involved Columbus and Tallahassee doing the same thing at an abandoned gas station.

Sometimes less is more and not every movie needs a sequel
When Zombieland came out in 2009 it was able to break the routine of zombie films by using an unorthodox style with its quirky dialogues, rules and storytelling. It was wild, fresh and most inportantly fun thanks in large part to a great cast that made the experience memorable. Zombieland: Double Tap, brought back the entire to send them on a new adventure but sadly, the story leaves a lot more to be desired.
This zombie fairy tale starts of well describing how the world has evolved in the past 10 years and the changes that came with it but in the grand scheme of things, its a pale shadow when compared to the original. They did bring in some new elements and characters that do a decent job of fitting into the narrative but ultimately, the movie fails to grasp the lightheartedness and energy of its predecessor.
I am a harsh critic when it comes to zombie films but here I understand that realism should go out the window to allow the movie to be a comedy. They doubled on the jokes but half of them ended up feeling either forced or stale which prevented the movie from having a smooth flow. The cast makes this movie worth the watch as it feels like they haven't changed since 2009 making it a decent sequel to be honest, Zombieland should have been left as a standalone cult classic.
