Army of the Dead

Army of the Dead ★★★½

At 148 minutes, Army of Dead does drag on a bit too long. When it finally arrives at its climax, its deliberate pace vanishes for a frantic, messy finale that isn’t quite as satisfying as it could be. Overall though, this is easily Snyder’s best movie in at least a decade. When Ward fights back tears as he tries to apologize to his daughter for all of the problems he’s caused, one senses that Snyder is pouring his guts out in a much more metaphorical way than is typical of zombie movies. It’s clear we won’t need a Snyder Cut of Army of the Dead. This is a Zack Snyder movie through and through.
