Army of the Dead (2021)


“Think about it. Everything we did. All those people we saved. Look what it got us. But what if, just once, we did something for us?” – Scott Ward

Number of Times Seen – 1 (21 May 2021)

Brief Synopsis – A mercenary is hired to put together a team in order to rob a vault containing over 200 million dollars locked safely underground in a Zombie infested Las Vegas.

My Take on it – Such a fun and thrilling Zombie Apocalypse movie that manage to stay so enjoyable from start to finish.

This is a film that I heard about a few months ago and have been highly anticipating since I’m a big fan of Director Zack Snyder’s directorial debut – Dawn of the Dead (2004).

The story is filled with so much energy and it is a non-stop thrill ride.

The changes that they make to the Zombie-rules” seem quite plausible and that helps keep things so thrilling because anything can happen.

The choice to make the characters all seem expendable is great because there is no need to question who might possibly have immunity throughout and that helps make things even more realistic.

The cast is superbly led by Dave Bautista who shops that he is such an up and coming lead action hero.

The supporting cast is also great, but, ironically, the standout among them is Tig Notaro who was digitally inserted into the film after replacing another actor and never really filmed any scenes together with the other actors.

This is an amazing Zombie movie that manages to keep things fresh and innovative the entire way through and is helped by the fast paced plot and story that are constantly evolving along the way.

The soundtrack is excellent and the covers of certain songs mixed in with originals helps keep things so entertaining throughout.

Can’t wait to watch this again!

Highly Recommended!

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – Right next to the vault entrance is what appears to be five boxes containing film reels on a metal shelf. This is the Snyder cut of Justice League, as Zack Snyder had originally shared to Vero in December 2019. (From IMDB)

Rating – Oscar Worthy (9/10)
