Better than the last.
Zombies 2. The sequel to the 2018 film, Zombies. The first film was ok. Sure, the visuals can be good, but it’s basically just Romeo and Juliet with zombies and humans. That made the films plot predictable and bland. But now with the sequel, will this be another bland tale?
Probably the film improved in is that it seems original. It’s not like you can just think of 10 different movies with the same plot. But this doesn’t mean it’s completely original. The most unoriginal thing about the plot is Zed thinks Meg will fall for a wolf. Disney Channel has used this several of times. Plus, it doesn’t help that the first Zombies is the definition of unoriginal. Plus, the jokes are a mixed bag. Some deserve a laugh, while others just come flat. Also, there’s too much going on, but that can work. Meg’s cheer captain plot is easily forgotten and doesn’t turn up until the final scene of the movie. Zed’s election plot is, well, at the very least, better that Meg’s cheerleading plot. Making things right for the zombies, yes, zombies are still being treated unfairly. But it does seem generic. The Wolf’s side is probably the strongest. The plot does develop the wolf’s storyline. Plus, it does have the most heart of the film, with Meg and Zed. Some of the plot may be generic and predictable, but some of it can be good.
The visuals in the first film are good, but in here, they are some of the best by Disney Channel. The action/danger the characters come across can be stunning. From the werewolf’s costume style to the big explosion at the building. Seriously, that is Visually stunningly. Other than that, the visuals are still good. The wolf’s lair would be the best setting. The movie really captures there not like zombies. Unlike zombies, they are more like savages. The setting captures that. Also, the wolf’s necklaces can be stunning, and look bright and a nice shade. And when the wolf’s sing, it can look amazing. The colors really stand out, making the music video enjoyable and visually appealing. The visuals in the first film are good, but the visuals here are amazing.
The Characters Personality’s:
While the visuals are great, the characters, have a a little bit built more in to them. Let’s start with Meg. She does have a little bit more built in because of wanting to be someone, as in she wants to feel like that she belongs. It does have more built, but it has been used countless time before, which doesn’t make it original. Then Zed. He has more built in because of his fear of losing Meg. That might be ok, but the side story of Zed trying to get zombies into prawn, is unoriginal. I mean it like Zed playing football to make it fair for zombies. It’s basically that but just written differently, but that’s more in the story. The wolf’s do serve more to the table, and they are likable, but they don’t really have something to make them stand out with their personalities. Compared to the first movie, this is and upgrade.
Zombies 2 is an upgrade from the first film. Sure the plot and characters are ok, the visuals are amazing, and the plot and characters have more built in to them. Disney Channel isn’t the best making sequels and spin-offs, considering Bunk’d and Descendants 3. This is one of the better sequels.
