Army of the Dead

Army of the Dead ★★★½

messy for sure but the opening and closing sections are wonderful, some of the best work of Snyder’s entire career, especially those final thirty or so minutes where he’s just absolutely going apeshit. some character arcs and sections don’t really work for me like i think they should, without getting into spoilers i think the middle portion could’ve been cut down a little, but when it works it really fucking works. especially dug a lot of the aesthetic choices here, he plays with camera focus a bunch and i think it works to great effect with a lot of the handheld camerawork. everybody loves a goddamn lobster roll. good flick! see it in theaters if you can
