His latest film is Army of the Dead, An action horror film starring David Bautista.Bautista is a former WWE Superstar who has been in a roll at Hollywood, Following the Footsteps of Dwayne Johnson and John Cena. Joining him is the Iconic Japanese actor Hiroyuki Sanada, Ana de la Reguera, Garret Dillahunt and Ella Purnell.
The movie is about a group of Mercenaries who are sent to Las Vegas to recover $200 Million. Sounds easy but here is the catch, Las Vegas has been through a Zombie outbreak. These are no ordinary undead because they are faster and more intelligent! They seem to communicate with each other as well because they are more strategic and organized. One of the most off-putting scenes in the trailer is a Vegas Showgirl zombie using seduction to lure her prey. I see some similarities with Train to Busan 2 because the beginning has a similar premise but the similarity ends there. The zombies there is more mindless while this one seemed to have a hive mentality like ants.
Army of the dead combines action and tension and there are more stakes because these zombies make the infected from 30 days later look slow. If I am there I will definitely want these undead creatures eradicated because they can put humanity to extinction.
There is a saying, What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas. I am happy that these zombies don’t exist in real life because they are not the run-on-the-mill types.
Army of Dead will be available on May 21 of this year exclusively at Netflix. It is rated R so please don’t watch it with your kids.
