Army of the Dead

Army of the Dead

Really want to like this one because it's quite fun of a ride when it works. Except, that only happens some of the time. I don't mind the movie spending the first hour just gathering the team with lots of talking - that's actually my favorite part in Seven Samurai. The problem here though is simply that the journey isn't entertaining.
We got a fairly wide range of variety of characters, but the set up's are quite poor. eg) A character's motivation is to save their friend? But we were never set up to care for the friend at all. The whole motivation felt extremely flat and barely surface level. That goes to a lot of them. The rest of them simply don't matter. In short; poor set up's, worse payoff's.

The effects are quite good. The CGI blend works extremely well too. There's a couple of action sequences that are definitely worth watching. Thoroughly enjoyed this well blend of horror & action. Sadly, there's very little emotional impact through the action.
