Ariane Anantaputri (A Drip Town Lemory Mane: The Podcast) and Petros Patsilivas (Caged In: Coppola Connections) join Flixwatcher remotely to review Ariane’s choice Army of the Dead.
Army of the Dead is the 2021 Zack Snyder zombie heist action horror film. Based on a story he created and a sort of possible sequel to his remake of 2004’s Dawn of the Dead. This time the city of Las Vegas is infected by a new breed of the undead after a collision with an army convey carrying a zombie picked up from Area 51. In an attempt to control the zone, a wall of container blocks is built and a countdown to a nuclear explosion is set.
A team of mercenaries is put together by a nefarious casino owner to drop into Las Vegas and recover $200 million from his casino before it is nuked. It quickly becomes apparent that money may not be the motivation for this mission.
Army of the Dead’s runtime is two hours and 28 minutes – the plot of Army of the Dead runs closer to about an hour and 30 mins max. Somewhere in it is a fairly entertaining heist countdown with zombies and a zombie tiger but it is bogged down with subplots around alpha zombies, unnecessary father/daughter reconciliation and some vague commentary of refugees.
Unsurprising that Army of the Dead receives mixed reviews for recommendability and even less surprising is its low scoring on repeat viewing and small screen score. Army of the Dead scores 2.54 overall.
