ARMY OF THE DEAD (Netflix Release USA 2021)

 Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.2|5.0 Starsìììì 

Army of the Dead,
just when an audience may think ‘enough of the zombie movies’, here comes Dave Bautista who turns out another zombie movie that is worth its watch and its investment of time and money. A great zombie movie that is both interesting and begs for its sequel, presents a different concept that backs itself with a solid storyline, great acting, good cinematography, and memorable visual effects. Don’t get too tired of zombie movies quite yet until, perhaps, after you’ve watched this movie.

Buy a ticket
? Yes? No? Maybe? 

Yes. Be aware that the credit lines rely on over the top gore backed with nudity and sexual references, but most of the rest of the movie does not graphically rely on those factors. While it does not perform as a child friendly film, it serves the action fans very well. Great work for Director Zack Snyder for timing, pacing, and intensity.
