Army of the dead (2021)

Directed by Zack Snyder

Starring Dave Bautista, Ella Purnell, Ana de la Reguera

Snyder is carrying a lot of momentum thanks to the Snyder cut version of Justice League that was met with great success. This is a different genre but currently is the number one streaming movie on Netflix.

In Las Vegas, a genetically engineered zombie is somehow released and infects a lot of people. Those who were not infected created a wall and were quarantined inside while the Zombies ruled the outside. One day a casino owner asks Ward a former mercenary to gather a team and recover some money that was in a vault in one of his casinos.

I should start by saying that zombie movies are not my favorite genre. I can see them but they are not my favorite kind of films. Having said that, I can say that this one has a lot of good things in it but it is not perfect. I had fun with the movie, I think mixing the zombies with a heist situation was clever, not sure if it has been done before. I found the movie too long and I think a few things could have been left out like the characters Ward’s daughter wanted to save. The film has a lot of action and horror because the zombies looked horrible.

The performances are good as expected for these kinds of films. I was sad that Sanada had such a small role, I enjoyed his performance in Mortal Kombat it would have been cool to see him fight zombies.

So my one thing with the film is that I found it too long, but it is a fun movie to see.
