Army Of The Dead [2021] ★★½

If you like your zombie movies with a side of Zack Snyder, then “Army of the Dead” is most definitely the film for you. It’s long and all over the place at times, but it’s also extremely well-shot and action-packed from start to finish. Dave Bautista is incredibly good as the leader of a group of mercenaries who are assigned a very dangerous mission: to infiltrate a quarantine zone in Las Vegas to pull-off one hell of a heist. Cue the zombie mayhem, skillfully staged by Snyder himself. There’s nothing truly original about the plot itself, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. There’s still plenty to enjoy here, and zombie fans will especially get a kick out of all the pulse pounding action sequences. Nothing more to add except to say that “Army of the Dead” delivers on its promise. You know what to stream on Netflix this weekend with your beer and pizza.
