Army of the Dead

Army of the Dead ★★★★

Watched (most of) it again, just to confirm: yeah, this shit fucking rips.

Any other action filmmaker of this caliber would have taken this project and stuffed it full of the typical blockbuster jingoism, military fetishism, USA! USA! USA! bullshit that runs rampant at your local megaplex every summer. Snyder doesn't! That has to count for something!! ARMY OF THE DEAD is many, many things (dumb included) but it is most importantly a staggeringly cynical portrait of various individuals who have been victimized by the good ole American dream.
