Army of the Dead

Army of the Dead ★★½

I've seen many reviews saying this a good shut off your brain movie. They're not wrong, but you really need to shut it off for this one. So much stupid. It was hard to take the main plot seriously. CGI overload. The out of focus stuff didn't bother me as much as others, but it was still pretty annoying at times. And way, way too long. There is no reason this needs to be over 2.5 hours long.

I didn't hate it though. There are some cool moments. The Vegas setting was fun. I enjoyed seeing the real properties vs the fake ones. There were a couple zombie kills that were fun.

I had some fun with this, but I feel a lot of the hype is because of who directed it. It really felt like a random direct to video zombie flick, but with a big budget.
