Army of the Dead

Army of the Dead ★★★½

It's like Zack Snyder made a zombie Escape from New York. An ex-soldier is hired to go into a deadly territory where escape is nearly impossible and there's a ticking clock.

There's some solid acting. Exciting action. Well done tension. Loads of gore. The beginning of this is all good set up and it's way more dramatic and emotionally charged than I expected. Damn Bautista has become quite a good actor.

Great ensemble cast too. With this and Wrath of Man Raúl Castillo is in two of the coolest recent heist movies. Tig is having a lot of fun in an action movie. Hiroyuki Sanada has smaller roles in this and Mortal Kombat, 2 of my most anticipated movies of the year, and doesn't disappoint in either. Nora Arnezeder as the Coyote is awesome. I really liked Bautista and Ella Purnell as estranged father and daughter.

Always nice to see there's still some life left in the zombie genre.
