After a hiatus of 10 years, the original director, 2 writers and the main cast are all back, but the thrill is gone. Even though the chemistry is still there and there are plenty of snarky comments, the magic is missing. Primarily, because the action takes a back seat to relationships (yawn). The main quartet splits up several times, as they cope with new breeds of zombies and their own personal issues. Some fresh faces pop up, but Thomas Middleditch is the only one who adds any fun. There aren’t even many fight scenes and most of the killings aren’t clever or original. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good zombie chop, but “The Walking Dead” does a lot better job of that. My review of the first movie called it “pure popcorn pleasure,” but this one rates as a high-spirited but ultimately tired retread. NOTE: Stay thru the credits for an additional gag.

 

2.5 out of 5 stars (2.5 / 5)
