Army of the Dead

Army of the Dead ★½

Review by Erhan Tan.

With it's lack of creativity and corny story, Army of the Dead fails to justify it's 148 minutes runtime. Viewers who stick until the end are in for a disappointment.

Even though Army of the Dead, a heist movie that takes places during a zombie breakout has as an interesting premise, Snyder fails to turn this premise into a decent story. As a matter of fact when we look at Zack Snyder's filmography, there is a clear correlation between him starting to write his own scripts and his failing career. Snyder, who has an undeniable talent when it comes to creating impressing shots, can come up with a movie like Dawn of the Dead when he has a script written by James Gunn. But when he starts writing the scripts with his own writers room, he comes up with Army of the Dead, which has a script worthy of cheap action movies.
