Army of the Dead

Army of the Dead ★★★½

👍🏻 7/10

The Good- Straightaway the film has a great genre blending concept. When I first heard about this immediately it appealed to me. I enjoy zombie films, I enjoy heist films so it sounds likes something that I would enjoy. Just like that you get some great action and visuals. Even in the first 15 minutes the action blows me away. When you get into the main story you see all different types of zombies and our main characters are all finding different ways to kill zombies. The characters are all written to be these over the top people, they all get some spotlight. If this film sounds like it would appeal to you, you will definitely find something here you will enjoy. 

The Mixed- The big thing is the movie introduces new zombie mythology. Although it shows you some implications, it didn’t exactly lead anywhere by the end of the film. 

The Bad- I don’t think the film needs to be as long as it was, I think if it was half an hour shorter and more faster paced it would of worked a lot better. The script goes for these funny one liners but the humour is very hit and miss some of it works some of it didn’t. 

I went into this films excited, I’m a big Zack Snyder and Dave Bautista fan, I love zombie apocalypse films, I enjoyed a good percentage of films. But it did have it’s faults. One of my friends turned it of half way through because it wasn’t fun enough and he didn’t think there was enough action. I had a good time with it. Overall I would give Army Of The Dead a 7/10 and if you love Zack Snyder or zombie apocalypse films then I would check this one out on Netflix.
