Army of the Dead

Army of the Dead ½

Zack Snyder's Army of the Dead is all bark and no bite as this films proves that its more brainless than its zombies. What pains me the most is all of Zack Snyder's flaws and problems to his filmmaking are aggravated here; the slow motion, editing, screenplay, and style over substance are actually respectable in his movies like Man of Steel and the recently released cut of the Justice League, but Army of the Dead is just too much. Drowning from desultory plot choices that make you demur every move that the film take is exhausting because these distinctions from his filmmaking style might be distinct, but in a terrible way. From pacing to screenplay, Army of the Dead is painful to watch as you try to get around the fact that zombies can now cary babies and accept peace offerings. Zack Snyder might have had a vision, but his work in Army of the Dead won't assuage the situation of people calling him a "Style over substance" director.
