Army of the Dead

Army of the Dead ★★★

"Think about it. Everything we did. All those people we saved. Look what it got us. But what if, just once, we did something for us?"

A freaking zombie Tiger? A ZOMBIE TIGER. That might be one of the best things I've seen in awhile! And did I even spot a robot zombie? Snyder went all out!

Anyway lets get this out first, the runtime is way too long. Some scenes feel like they are going nowhere and are just dragging on and on and on and on and on and on and on. But other than that, I had a good time.

I had the most fun with the gorey opening. All that gore to Elvis's Viva Las Vegas, great stuff. I liked the simple story, I liked how the zombies lived with like a king and queen. Always fun to see something else. The cast was fun. Loved seeing Theo Rossi in something besides in my rewatches of Sons of Anarchy, Bautista missed the chance to Batista bomb the shit out of some zombies but that's okay, he did a good job as the lead. Best parts were his scenes with Ella Purnell who played Kate, his daughter in the film. Enjoyed the boobytrap scene and I wasn't even bothered by the predictable twists.

I just enjoyed watching a Zack Snyder film being the type of Snyder films I enjoy. Not really interested in the "anime" or prequel about Dieter, my least favorite character of the bunch. Won't revisit this any time soon but glad I watched it. So if you have a spare 148 minutes laying around and you enjoy Heist movies and Zombies, this might be one for you.


Ps. loved the soundtrack.
