Army of the Dead is the latest film from director Zack Snyder’s whose output has very much been in the news. In fact, his Justice League director’s cut was so popular it made it to HBO Max, despite the original movie coming out four years before. But he is back having written and directed a brand new film, with some hoping it will become a franchise in itself.
Who is in Netflix movie Army of the Dead?
The star of Army of the Dead is Guardians of the Galaxy’s Dave Bautista, who leads the cast as Scott Ward while Ella Purnell plays his daughter Kate.
Given the film is about an ‘army,’ there are quite a few names in the cast, though none of them have the same star power as Dave.
Hiroyuki Sanada plays casino boss Bly Tanaka, who gives Scott his job to retrieve millions of dollars from a vault below Las Vegas in the zombie quarantine zone.

Ana de la Reguera plays mechanic Maria Crus, who joins the team as a friend of Scott’s, while Omari Hardwick plays Vanderohe, and brings special skills as a killer of zombies.
Tig Notaro plays Marianne, a helicopter pilot who is cynical of their mission, and the one behind it, while Raúl Castillo and Samantha Win play influencer Mikey Guzman and his friend Chambers.
Garret Dillahunt plays Martin, the head of the casino security, and Nora Arnezeder plays Coyote, a warrior who brings along her own recruit, security guard Burt (played by Theo Rossi.)
Finally, Matthias Schweighöfer plays Dieter, the team’s safe-cracker, while Huma Qureshi plays Geeta, a mother who Kate goes to look for in a surprise turn of events.
What do critics think of Army of the Dead?
In general, critics have received the film well, with it gaining an aggregate score of 74 percent on Rotten Tomatoes.
Robbie Collin of The Telegraph said of the film: “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.”
This comment came in a four-star review, though some others have not been so generous.
The Independent’s Clarisse Loughrey said in her three-star review: “A Baroque tapestry of blood, bullets and bones – one that’s never short of memorable imagery, even if its symbolism is so obvious that it feels like it’s been screamed through a megaphone.”
Empire’s John Nugent had a similar view of the film, saying: “It’s refreshing to see Snyder reignite his first love with this romp of a genre mash-up that lets Snyder loose with his most gleeful indulgences, almost as much as his worst excesses.”
Time Out’s Phil de Semlyen was not much of a fan of the film, giving it a two-star review.
He wrote: “Army of the Dead resembles nothing so much as a watered-down Aliens with slot machines.”
CNN’s Brian Lowry has a similarly negative review, adding: “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.”
