Army of the Dead

Army of the Dead ★★★½

While it doesn't completely reinvent the genre, Army of the Dead is a gory good time. The action sequences pretty exciting exciting setpieces through its Las Vegas setting, and there are some effective uses of suspense and tension. The whole cast kills it (both figuratively and literally), including Dave Bautista who delivers a legit strong performance. Other notable standouts include Omari Hardwick, Matthias Schweighofer, Nora Arnezeder, Tig Notaro, and Samantha Win (who has a badass sequence of her own). Some characters are pretty two-dimensional and not as fleshed out as they could've been. It's a little too long and didn't really have to be 2 1/2 hours long, and Snyder's out-of-focus background frame does can get pretty distracting. Regardless, it's a pretty fun and very bloody zombie action heist flick worth seeing either on Netflix or on the big screen.
