Army of the Dead

Action Crime


 

A group of mercenaries attempt a heist in the middle of a zombie outbreak.

"Army of the Dead" is a shambling production that tries to be too many things at once. The story attempts to make us care about this rag-tag group, but the characters are shallow, inconsistent, and make idiotic decisions. For a zombie flick, the level of gore is surprisingly low for the most part, with only a few key scenes showcasing the film's entire fake blood budget. There's no sense of urgency, as evidenced by the indulgent running time, and the pops of humour often fall flat or just seem completely out of place. Braindead.
