Army of the Dead

Army of the Dead ★★★

Exotic, full of wildly over the top moments and so very, very long. This is sooo Zack Snyder. Someone really needs to buy this guy a watch.

"That's a goddamn zombie tiger! That's crossing the line."

The fuzzy visuals are luscious and never let up throughout the 14-day runtime, unlike the story which jumps out of the blocks at 100mph with one of the best opening sequences I've seen in years and then ebbs and flows between awesomely gory grott-fest, cheeky one-liners and periods of mind numbing nothingness.

That being said, as a Saturday night pizza-movie this is just fine. I just can't see it being remembered beyond a few days from now though.
