Summary: Five years after we last met them, Tallahassee, Columbus, Wichita and Little Rock are living fairly comfortably in the White House, fairly safe from zombie attack. However when Columbus proposes marriage to Wichita, she and Little Rock flee the coup in the former presidential armoured saloon. Tallahassee and Columbus give chase in a low grade people carrier, picking up “pretty in pink” Madison on the way. When the girls pick up pacifist Berkeley, things change and while he and Little Rock head for a pacifist enclave the others arrive at an Elvis themed motel in Memphis operated by Nevada who takes a fancy to Tallahassee. Our heroes eventually end up in Babylon, the pacifist enclave, but new and enhanced zombies are about to attack. Can they survive?

Content: There is no actual sex but it is implied now and again, particularly when they rescue Madison who seems keen to do anyone. No smoking although Tallahassee seems to intend to smoke a cigar. Quite a bit of drinking. On a number of occasions zombies are dispatched gruesomely and some are more difficult to kill than others. The guys travel over the desolate and destructed America, driving on highways covered in broken cars. They spend time in the Elvis motel where Tallahassee does an Elvis impression to impress Nevada – successfully. While there they fight with a duo who seem to be mirror images of T & C. In the pacifist enclave they have no guns so more ingenious methods must be used to overcome the zombies.

A View: It is generally thought that this was something of a success to re-unite the cast, ten years on when they have become even more successful. Past that the writers have overcome the problem of repeating a script just involving zombie killing. It is amazing isn’t it that zombies have become so much of a thing. So, this film has been pretty well thought of and has made some money, and if you like extreme violence presented as fun worth a view, although I recognise that this is not everybody’s cup of tea.

There have been a number of what we might call “fun” zombie outings reviewed on this site starting with the original Zombieland, but additionally you might like to try Office Uprising and Burying the Ex.
