The previous Snyder zombie Dawn of the Dead is one my favorites of the genre right alongside Train from Busan. And while it does not fall totally flat is a far cry from the former.
The Good: Decent production values, plenty of zombie killing, decent if wasted cast, if taken as pure no thinking popcorn movie it entertains, zombie tiger and Its Vegas, baby!
The Bad: Poor pacing overall, feels like a haunted house in zombieland and Snyder can and has done a better job directing before, the casting is textbook diversity woke casting. No zombie Sinatra or Elvis.
The Ugly: Plotholes, so many the Pacific Fleet could drive across it with room to spare, it fails to keep minimal inner consistence too often and ham fisted politics, the scummy guard blackmailing and raping potentially zombie infected women and the pretty young woman rock groupie coyote are more unbelievable than the zombies, with such a lazy job of containment it’s a wonder only Vegas is overrun with zombies.
Verdict: Its passable zombie fun, but don’t expect too much like me.
