Ben’s review published on Letterboxd:
Zombie fatigue has well and truly hit its peak with Army of the Dead, and this is coming from someone who adores the subgenre. Snyder certainly attempted some new ideas, but it’s still littered with tropes. The movie feels slapped together in a disjointed mess. Think Suicide Squad but slightly better. I can’t tell if the bright font color is a subtle joke about how Snyder’s films are so bland looking. Either way, setting a movie in Vegas and not utilizing it to its full potential is plain wrong. I can’t say I disliked it all. The gore is delectable and some scenes do actually look rather good. It’s just the rest is full of lame characters and a bloated runtime. Snyder needs to learn when to end a movie. He had such a great final shot then tacks on another pointless 5 minutes. Big fan of his take on Dawn of the Dead as well as Watchmen. Please get back those days Zack.
