Made zombie movies cool again!

I'm not a big zombie guy, but this movie breaths new life into the genre. Snyder manages to bring style and substance to this movie and it makes for an emotional and highly entertaining ride.

Highly recommend watching with others and in a theater if possible! Stay safe everyone!

P.s. I hope Snyder is his own DP on his future projects because this movie is GORGEOUS.

I haven't seen a zombie movie this good in a LONG TIME

This movie was so entertaining and fun to watch in theaters. Amazing characters, plot, and the zombies were really cool. I can't wait for others to see this on Netflix because I guarantee it will be extremely popular!

Falls way short of its awesome potential

A number of reviewers have already taken shots at the huge plot holes and ridiculous setup of this movie; I share in both their criticism and disappointment. If you happen to care about such lofty things like coherent storytelling or character development, I'd wait to watch this lazy entry into the zombie genre until you're either drunk or stoned to overlook its many problems.

And while Zack may have gotten some kind of personal thrill out of manning every major job in this project, the outcome has clearly suffered as a result. What could have been an otherwise outstanding zombie action flick, given proper attention to detail and an avoidance of lazy tropes, is instead no more than another sparkly yet mediocre piece of cookie-cutter movie confection.

The fact that more movie goers aren't outraged by the significant and apparently permanent drop in quality/intelligence of most these blockbuster Hollywood productions is what bewilders me. Apparently, just shoveling an old retread of a story into a production-line CGI machine is enough to satisfy most of today's audience, who blithely flock to, praise, and subsidize whatever vapid POS comes out. Are super hero action scenes really all we're after anymore? Isn't it time to demand more for your entertainment dollar?

You should bet all in for a good time

There's no need for a Snyder cut of Army of the Dead. This is a Zack Snyder film through and through; it's easily his best work since Watchmen (2009) and enough to win over the majority of stubborn Snyder skeptics. I should know because I was one of those skeptics, at one point believing him to be on the same wavelengths as Michael Bay.

Truly, you should bet all in for a good time because Army of the Dead is a riotous, gratuitous, gleefully over-the-top zombie/heist thriller overloaded with guts, gore and panache. The plot is also irresistibly ludicrous. Think Aliens or Ocean's Eleven with zombies and you've pretty much got the gist.

Dave Bautista (finally the leading man) and his rag-tag team have a 32 hour window to retrieve $200million from a casino vault before an outbreak-ravaged Las Vegas is blown to smithereens by an atomic bomb. But as you've probably guessed already, Bautista and his comrades bite off a little more than they can chew when the escape plan goes terribly wrong...

A little like Bautista and his crew, AotD also bites off a little more than it can chew. After a strong opening sequence followed by the first explosion clocking in at three minutes, pacing issues give way to a convoluted introduction of many thinly veiled characters. It's also about 20 minutes too long. However, you'll probably be having way too much fun to even notice or likewise care.

Unlike Warner Bros, this new partnership between Snyder and Netflix is definitely one I can get behind.
