Army of the Dead

Army of the Dead ★★★★

2021 really is Zack's year, first the Snyder Cut and now this, after all the trouble he's endured he deserves it and I can't wait to see what he does next. Quite a few are describing this as a big dumb action flick, which sure parts of it are just loud and done for the visuals, but blanketly calling it that one thing does the film a major disservice. It undermines the exceptional father/daughter relationship that's at the forefront of the film and something that I imagine is very personal to Snyder after the tragic loss of his daughter, Autumn. Bautista really flexes his acting muscles here, the quiet moments with him and Purnell are excellent. All of the character work is great and truly what kept me invested, not a single one of the perfectly cast characters aren't worth watching.
