Army of the Dead

Army of the Dead ★★

When Snyder is able to escape the banality and inherent cheapness of Netflix filmmaking during the short moments of sensory overload it can be highly effective. A group of schlubs willing to die over working through their slavor labor jobs mowing down the remains of antiquidated American excess is a fantastic concept. The blurry sunsets and mushroom clouds fovs are a sight to behold but tonally its so sappy and pulled in 2,000 different directions. The very bottom of Zaddy's work, Bautista going berserk in the middle of the casino popping dozens of neon heads- meaningless paper floating along the glowing slot machines is a moment that makes this worthwhile viewing.
