Ben Stiller stars in the 2015 sequel film "2oolander," which brought in $23.2 million at the box office on opening week.
In the movie, Derek Zoolander and Hansel make a huge comeback in the fashion industry but have realized that fashion is not the same as their glory days.
If that wasn’t enough, many celebrities around the world are getting killed but leaving a very subliminal clue behind their last pose on their “selfies” that all point back to Derek Zoolander.
Not only does Zoolander have to worry about making his epic comeback in the fashion industry, but also has to help the secret service to track down the killer behind all the celebrities’ deaths.
As soon as I started watching the movie, just as anyone who has seen the first movie to a sequel, there is always the high expectation as viewers for the next movie to surpass the first movie in comedy, action, and plot.
The movie starts off to a rapid action scene that intrigued my interest and gradually moves to a more comedic scene that balances out perfectly into the plot keeping it exciting and hilarious at the same time.
As the plot continues, there is the immediate character reveal of Derek and Hansel which they have successfully portrayed them as the ones you remember from the first Zoolander movie, both dorky and self-absorbed within their looks.
Which gives you this sensation of déjà vu feeling like if you were watching the same characters you fell in love with.
Laughters, “oohs” and “aahs” and a few “woahhs” were heard over the auditorium along with excitement.
With a great plot, that was well laid out and a story that takes you to the past with a few flashbacks, it leads you to where they are now.
Zoolander 2 had many celebrities featured in the film as well, with Will Ferrell still as the manipulative, crazy, protagonist, Justin Bieber as one of the many celebrities killed, and many others such as A$AP Rocky , Joe Jonas, Skrillex, Katy Perry, Ariana Grande, and Benedict Cumberbatch.
If you are looking for a thrilling, action packed comedy, then I suggest you head to the theaters and watch Zoolander 2.
I give this movie a 4 out of 5 stars.
