"Follow the Rules…Again!"


Synopsis:

“Columbus, Tallahassee, Wichita, and Little Rock move to the American heartland as they face off against evolved zombies, fellow survivors, and the growing pains of the snarky makeshift family.” – Sony Pictures Home Entertainment

My Take:

Set one decade after the events of the first film, Zombieland: Double Tap finds Tallahassee (Woody Harrelson), Columbus (Jesse Eisenberg), Little Rock (Abigail Breslin), and Wichita (Emma Stone) working together as a well-oiled, zombie-killing machine with a new home in the now-vacant White House. These four slayers must face off against the many new kinds of zombies that have evolved since the first movie, as well as some new human survivors. But most of all, they have to face the growing pains of their own snarky, makeshift family.

I like the original Zombieland. I am not a big fan of zombie movies although I have nothing against them. I generally tend to like spoofs and originally had no expectations for it. Jesse Eisenberg’s dry, nonchalant, Michael Cera type delivery didn’t appeal much but, the presence of Woody Harrelson, Emma Stone, and Abigail Breslin gave me hope and, it paid off. Zombieland: Double Tap arrives ten years later and finds the quartet in solid form as they square off against a host of zombies, which they have now classified (you’ll have to watch it to see what I mean).

Very much like the first film, all the requisite bloodletting, funny bone tickling quips, rules and interaction among the principles is present. In addition to that are several well-placed characters that they encounter along the way that add fun to the proceedings. The plot isn’t especially different but, that’s part of the charm of sequels like Zombieland: Double Tap. Honestly, I could watch Woody Harrelson play any character and enjoy it. As with the first film he is a scene stealing machine that makes the most of each moment the camera is on him. Emma, Jessie and Abigail are fine but, are pretty much along for the ride. Newcomer Zoey Deutch comes in a close second as “Madison” the film’s dingy interloper that adds a wonderful touch of comic relief.

So, while Zombieland: Double Tap doesn’t reinvent the wheel, there’s still plenty of mindless, surefooted horror/comedy fun to be had. Just be sure to hang around just after the credits begin to roll….

Zombieland: Double Tap comes to Ultra HD Blu-ray from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment featuring 2160pHEVC encoded video and lossless DTS:X/7.1 Master Audio sound.

For its presentation in Ultra HD, Zombieland: Double Tap was derived from 3.4K sources, and rendered from a 2K DI.

The 1080p transfer of Zombieland: Double Tap is a good one and this Ultra HD rendering takes it up a notch with a discernible increase in detail and visual depth. This film makes use of a variety of lighting schemes, and when called for, the cinematography makes use of shadows, cascading/streaming light and a mix of light/dark elements. It’s application here is used well drawing upon HDR’s ability to create stark contrast between the two. The use of shadows mixed with light looked very natural.

The film utilizes various chromatic schemes, with a cooler overall visual aesthetic, that appears faithfully reproduced in Ultra HD. The nature of the photography didn't always allow the wide color gamut to shine, but, scenes like their arrival at Nevada’s “Graceland” mansion, or the grounds at “Babylon” revealed vibrant earth toned hues and lush color. Close ups offer fine detail rendering and, appreciable chromatic delineation in the skin tones and costumes worn by the cast.

The application of HDR appeared noticeably lacking until the final act during the preparation and standoff against the zombie horde. Set against the nighttime backdrop the fireworks, roaring flames and various levels of arcing light looked fantastic.

Based upon the quality of the original source the difference between viewing Zombieland: Double Tap in high definition and Ultra HD isn't night and day but, the upgrade is a discernible one that makes it well worth considering.


DTS:X:

In listening to the DTS:X soundtrack, I was happy with the application here. When applied, the use of overhead sound objects elevated proportional correlation. When compared to the 5.1 channel mix on the Blu-ray, the immersive sound offers a noticeable improvement by opening up the soundstage, elevating the perception of low-level detail. During the various encounters/interior/exterior venues featured in the film, the track brims with atmospherics which adds an enriching layer to the soundstage. This is noticeable right from the beginning, with examples being found throughout (listen for the falling Tower if Pisa!). When called for the mix took a subtle or more active approach while adding a complimentary element. I enjoyed this audio presentation and had a good time listening to Zombieland: Double Tap.


For those not familiar with the details regarding Ultra HD Blu-ray you can refer to my article that includes some pertinent data on the subject. Here is the link:

Zombieland: Double Tap comes to Blu-ray Disc from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment featuring 1080p AVC encoded video and DTS-HD 5.1 Master Audio sound.

This is an excellent high definition rendering that sports plenty of fine detail and crisp definition that provides discerning dimensional perspective. Colors range from warm and vivid to cool, reserved and almost tonally neutral. This is obviously a creative decision that draws definitive visual boundaries and works quite well. Contrast is strong and blacks are deep without compromise to delineation. Shadowy areas exhibit excellent depth of field and visible gradational stages. The various wide-angle shots of the landscapes featured in the film look terrific. I didn’t see any signs of video degrading artifacts or extraneous compression related noise. Zombieland: Double Tap looks great on Blu-ray.

The DTS-HD MA 5.1 soundtrack (as well as the 7.1 Master Audio core on the UHD version) feature crystal clear dialog, robust dynamics and when called upon, an engaging surround sound mix. I was impressed with the implementation of both spacial dimension, and directional effects. This worked hand in hand with a resonating and potent low end, and rousing music, that underscored the film’s thematic tone. I found this to be an involving audio presentation that complimented the video resulting in an entertaining viewing experience that enhanced the source material.


Bonus Features:

Final Thoughts:

As with its predecessor Zombieland, Zombieland: Double Tap[/i] is an entertaining and well executed horror/comedy that hits the target via its likeable characters, well placed humor, and clever integration of its thematic elements. It comes to Blu-ray from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment in this Ultra HD Blu-ray Combo Pack that features excellent overall video quality, engaging lossless surround, including DTS:X immersive sound and a fan friendly supplemental package. If you’re a fan of the original film Zombieland: Double Tap is a solid sequel with very much the same feel. Take it for a ride on Blu-ray and enjoy!.

I wasn't planning on picking this up, but I have always found DTS:X to sound better than ATMOS so probably will.

Greetings,

No, I am not currently set up for IMAX Enhanced. I am planning on a pre/pro upgrade this year which will almost definitely incorporate IMAX Enhanced.

No worries! Didn't think you had from looking at your setup but was curious. I think I'll pick it up and see how it looks/sounds!

Slummed it with the lowly 1080p version, still looked and sounded quite good. As for the movie, I enjoyed it. Tallahassee cracks me up. Loved the Columbia pictures opening logo scene too.

Ralph, I could have sworn you had the 8805, which is IE.

I was seriously considering it but, decided to wait until I see the HDMI board upgrade included. I had the 8802 (a) and didn't much care for sending it in for the board upgrade. We'll see how things look soon.

Picked this one up the other day and watched it tonight on my IMAX Enhanced setup (x4500h / 77A9G)

Picture looked great, as noted by Ralph there weren't a ton of areas where HDR was fully utilized outside of the Nevada/Hotel intro scene and the final set piece at Babylon - but those scenes looked amazing with the bright neon lighting/explosions against the dark/night settings.

The IMAX Enhanced DTS:X mix was great as well, best way I could describe it is a more powerful sounding mix compared to other Atmos/DTS:X content I've listened to.

Will have to go back and watch it again in standard HDR/DTS X and see if I can notice differences

The wife and I watched this last night. If you liked the first one (which we did), you'll like the this one as well.

And I agree, Harrelson stole every scene he was in.

Yeah, I hear ya. Sending stuff back in isn't any fun.

After renting the 1080p BD, I went out and bought the 4K UHD disc. And I thought the regular BD looked good. Noticed a difference right away. Plus, it's my first IE disc that's not a nature doc.

Thanks for the review Ralph!

IMAX Enhanced at its core is DTS:X which is the track that I listened to.

I agree. It doesn't have quite the same magic as the first one but I still didn't mind it.

It's very close for me, but I think the freshness of it all just makes the first edge it out, but if this was the first movie, I probably would have liked it just as much.

Mindless fun, a couple of times the actors said something that had me burst into laughter. If i was putting together a double feature, this would be second on the bill with Tremors leading off.

Like others have said, if you liked the first one, you'll like it, if for no other reason than nostalgia since so much time has elapsed from the first. I viewed the Blu-Ray from Netflix, and as mentioned in Ralph's description, was disappointed it was only DTS 5.1. The extras were entertaining. Surprise - no script for the Bill Murray cameo

Not as new, fresh, and novel a take on the tired zombie movie genre as the first, which I think is one of the reasons I liked it so much, but then it really couldn't be. Still entertaining though.

Thinkin' Tallahassee in 4K UHD is overkill. Waitin' for grab-barrel DT DVD.
