Army of the Dead

Army of the Dead ★★★½

Looks like a real movie which automatically puts it in the upper echelon of Netflix originals. Dave Bautista makes for a good sensitive soft-spoken hero in the Kyle Reese mould and a smart counterbalance to the sillier elements. It's no social satire but like a good zombie movie it's anti-authority and takes some jabs at jingoism and greed. Weirdly enough, the movie it reminds me of most is GHOSTS OF MARS, especially as the same actor plays the leader of a primitive undead army in both. An entertaining time.
