Army of the Dead

Army of the Dead ★½

The zombies were cool, but I still wanted more creative usage of kills and action sequences, especially when the runtime for this movie exceeds 2 hours in typical Snyder fashion. I found the attempt at character drama and emotional conflict to be so flat, any scenes where you had Bautista's character and his daughter have a heart-to-heart conversation just grinded the momentum and sense of danger to a halt. Lots of potential with the setting of a ravaged Las Vegas, wacky variants like in Left 4 Dead, but it ending up feeling so...dull?
