Army of the Dead

Army of the Dead ★★½

Had quite a bit of fun! Lots of really great looking and appropriately placed gore, a bomb title sequence, great visual style and really great tension building in that one hibernating zombies scene. Unfortunately I didn’t love the zombies, I thought they looked pretty comical (I’m not sure if that was the point), and the film tries to do wayyy too much (at one point it looks like it makes an attempt at some sort of sociopolitical commentary that falls flat). Chemistry was not that great which ruined a lot of the relatability of the characters. Plus so much of the premise just flat out does not make any sense. The film’s at its best when it doesn’t try too hard and just lets loose.
