Greetings, dear synagogues! Yesterday I watched the sequel to the reference zombie comedy called “Zombieland: Control Shot.” The plot continues to talk about the fate of the merciless and fearless four zombie hunters after many years. The main characters come to Washington and settle in the White House to finally enjoy a calm and peaceful life, but it does not last long: Little Rock (Abigail Breslin) is kidnapped. And now Tallahassee (Woody Harrelson), Wichita (Emma Stone) and Columbus (Jesse Eisenberg) have a long way to go in hot pursuit of a missing family member.
The tape was supposed to be released about 7-8 years ago, but the over-employment of the creators of Zombieland with other projects prevented the release of the sequel in the near future. Thus, the development of the continuation was repeatedly delayed. And so, in the summer of 2018, the work began to boil, and at the end of July of this year, a trailer was presented that made the geeks and fans of the first part remember who Columbus, Tallahassee, Wichita and Little Rock are. And in a week the long-awaited premiere of this tape will come, however I have already managed to watch it at a press show and form my opinion (it WITHOUT SPOILERS, we read and are not afraid).
I’ll start with the analysis of the script. It turned out less memorable than the first film and more secondary. The plot has become more noticeable easier, alas.
The action of the scenes, scattering blood and “meat” in all corners of the big screen did not decrease, for which I am grateful to the director – all in the best traditions of the original. In addition, Rubilovo was accompanied by classical rock supplementing the overall picture, which cannot be adored in such an environment.
Acting is the best thing in this film. The entire caste migrated from the first part: Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Emma Stone and Abigail Breslin. Everyone played quite charismatically, but I want to highlight the cool old Harrelson, who again deserves applause for such a brutal Tallahassee. The cast was joined by such equally stunning actors as Zoe Deutsch (Madison), Rosario Dawson (Nevada) and Evan Jogia (Berkeley). But half the work of Hollywood stars went “down the drain” because of the terrible dubbing, in which our actors sometimes utterly tastelessly uttered phrases, and sometimes replayed, and also conveyed incorrect intonations.
Now about the characters. Unfortunately, of all only two underwent minor transformations: Columbus and Tallahassee. The scriptwriters scored for the Wichita and Little Rock duet and from the new side did not approach them. But, nevertheless, the chemistry of this strange little family continues to “live.” Diversity is decided by new minor characters: Madison, Nevada, Berkeley and others. And despite the fact that they do it, these characters quickly arrive and also drop out of the plot, which simply devalues their significance in the script.
When viewing, I noticed a lot of illogicalities. For example, in this apocalyptic universe there is a community of hippy pacifists who get rid of any weapons and kill no one. But then the question arises: how then did they manage to survive in such a cruel and bloody world, if none of the local inhabitants had ever even offended a fly? Or hereÂs another riddle: where do the main characters come from endless ammunition and food? Although itÂs stupid to ask such questions to the scriptwriters of the zombie comedy …
Pleased, as always, high-quality humor. However, from time to time he didnÂt always work, for example, in cases where the scriptwriters tried absurdly to integrate Âtoilet jokes that ruined the atmosphere for no reason.
The impression was blurred by a very absurd and controversial ending, in which there are no unexpected twists, no comedic or enchanting moments, because of which I would have been enthusiastic about the creativity of the authors.
To summarize. It turned out to be a pretty passing sequel. No, of course, he did not lose all his former grandeur and comic, but the picture largely repeats the success of the original. Considering the strengths and weaknesses of the tape described above, I recommend watching the “Zombieland: Control Shot” to fans of the first part, black comedies and films about zombie apocalypse.
