Army of the Dead

Army of the Dead ★★½

It’s a big dumb blockbuster zombie heist movie. It’s about what you’d expect, it’s not ultra-serious in terms of Snyder and is fairly engaging. The action sequences are fun and the pace is decent. I know this was supposed to set up a cinematic universe and it is obvious here but didn’t take away from the film. The standout here was Schweighöfer giving a solid comedic performance. Bautista was out lead and was serviceable. The highlight of the film is its first 15 or so minutes, with a fun and dumb reason for the zombie apocalypse and a great montage. I also liked the ending although it was predictable. Overall, while not being the greatest zombie film ever, it’s entertaining and does what it needs to do. I expect this to do really well on Netflix.
