Imagine if Ocean’s 11 had been set amidst a zombie apocalypse and looked like a video game come to life. What you’re envisioning is probably a lot like this franchise-spawning, roughly two-and-a-half-hour undertaking directed by Zack Snyder (300, Zack Snyder’s Justice League). Having gotten his start remaking George Romero’s classic 1978 zombie film Dawn of the Dead, Snyder trods familiar territory in this circumscribed pastiche. The ever-charming Dave Bautista stars as the leader of a mercenary group hired to go into Las Vegas—Sin City having been closed off after being overrun by fast-moving zombies—to retrieve millions of dollars in cash from a bad guy’s casino vault. He assembles a motley crew of survivors (played by the likes of Omari Hardwick, Ana de la Reguera, and Tig Notaro, who reshot scenes originally featuring Chris D’Elia in light of the latter’s alleged sexual misconduct) and penetrates the soon-to-be-nuked city, only to find that some of the zombies have evolved, effectively creating their own society in the quarantine zone. There are some cloying relationship-oriented subplots and a predictable twist that accounts for one of several lazy ways in which Snyder (who came up with the story and cowrote the script) attempts to invoke politics and current events. All told, however, the film is actually fairly enjoyable, taken for what it is. Snyder shot the film himself; the intentional blurring of background action is needlessly distracting.
