Army of the Dead

With the abandoned, walled city of Las Vegas overrun with zombies, after a disastrous government fault, the billionaire casino magnate, Bly Tanaka, realises that he has left something in Sin City: $200 million to be more precise. (source: IMDB)

We already had to run away from zombies, hide from zombies and even fight zombies… However, making a heist in a zombie infested Vegas, that is new.

I don’t know if it’s because we went in without any expectations, but we enjoyed Army of the Dead. Once again, I don’t understand the bad reviews, what do people expect? It’s a zombie movie from the 2020 era, do people really watch such a movie for its depth and character development? Does such a thing even still exists in cinema nowadays?

Anyway, we had a great Saturday evening following Dave Bautista and his team. Clearly, it isn’t an original Romero, but it does a good job at keeping the pace and delivering a new experience in the franchise. It actually makes me wanna do a complete rerun of all the “of the Dead” movies, maybe an idea for this year’s Halloween (if we don’t all turn into zombies after the vaccination).

Day of the Dead: Bloodline

Bite me!

Even if the actors aren’t really good, the plot is plausible (for a zombie movie): A patient being treated for hormonal imbalance doesn’t turn entirely into a zombie. Identifying the right hormone holds the key to the vaccine…

The strong point of Day of the Dead Bloodline is its relentless action, from the first scene to the last, the movie barely slows down. There’s no place for overstretched emotional scenes, they didn’t try to seduce the fans of dramas.

Even if it’s inspired by Romero, we’re far from the quality of his original movies (especially knowing that Day of the Dead was already not his best). However, if you’re into zombies and you’re not too picky, you should enjoy Bloodline.
