Army of the Dead

Army of the Dead ★½

Nothing in this is original. And I'm not just talking about influences. I'm talking about actual shot-for-shot, line-for-line plagiarism. Whole sequences, down to the exact beats and camera angles, have been lifted directly from films such as Aliens, An American Werewolf in London, Star Wars, and Halloween. And there's nothing else to redeem the film from these lazy, sloppy sins, because the writing, acting, and cinematography are horrible. This is beyond unforgivable. It's like the kind of movie my talentless friend who unironically loves the Resident Evil movies would make if he had millions of dollars to blow. Except it's worse, because my friend hasn't seen those superior movies that this one chose to blatantly copy. So at least my friend's movie would be without the plagiarism.
