Movie Info

From filmmaker Zack Snyder (300, Zack Snyder's Justice League), ARMY OF THE DEAD takes place following a zombie outbreak that has left Las Vegas in ruins and walled off from the rest of the world. When Scott Ward (Dave Bautista), a displaced Vegas local, former zombie war hero who's now flipping burgers on the outskirts of the town he now calls home, is approached by casino boss Bly Tanaka (Hiroyuki Sanada), it's with the ultimate proposition: Break into the zombie-infested quarantine zone to retrieve $200 million sitting in a vault beneath the strip before the city is nuked by the government in 32 hours. Driven by the hope that the payoff could help pave the way to a reconciliation with his estranged daughter Kate (Ella Purnell), Ward takes on the challenge, assembling a ragtag team of experts for the heist. They include Maria Cruz (Ana de la Reguera), an ace mechanic and Ward's old friend; Vanderohe (Omari Hardwick), a zombie killing machine; Marianne Peters (Tig Notaro), a cynical helicopter pilot; Mikey Guzman (Raúl Castillo), a go-for-broke influencer and Chambers (Samantha Win), his ride-or-die; Martin (Garret Dillahunt), the casino's head of security; a badass warrior known as the Coyote (Nora Arnezeder) who recruits Burt Cummings (Theo Rossi), a slimy security guard; and a brilliant German safe cracker named Dieter (Matthias Schweighöfer). Scott finds an unexpected emotional hurdle when Kate joins the expedition to search for Geeta (Huma S. Qureshi), a mother who's gone missing inside the city. With a ticking clock, a notoriously impenetrable vault, and a smarter, faster horde of Alpha zombies closing in, only one thing's for certain in the greatest heist ever attempted: survivors take all.

  • Zack Snyder clearly felt little pressure to cut in assembling this two-and-a-half-hour zombie/heist hybrid. The result is a Netflix movie that yields plenty of striking shots -- a Snyder specialty -- without giving enough life to its non-zombie cast.

    May 13, 2021 | Full Review…
  • The film's masterful prologue writes a check that the remainder of this very long, very indulgent film labors mightily to cash.

    May 13, 2021 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…
  • "Army of the Dead" is overstuffed and ridiculous but that is partly why it's irresistible.

    May 13, 2021 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • We won't need a Snyder Cut of Army of the Dead. This is a Zack Snyder movie through and through.

    May 12, 2021 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…
  • Everyone here has been cast for their faces, not their names - and Snyder's camera examines the toll taken by the heist on each one of them closely, most of all Bautista's, which remains one of the most soulful in modern Hollywood.

    May 12, 2021 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • I like zombie movies as much as the next guy, but let's be honest: There's filler here.
