It’s clear: Zack Snyder’s characters have to be fed separately. Without going any further, what do you think the protagonists of Army of the Dead do when a zombie apocalypse (the same one from Dawn of the Dead) fills Las Vegas with the undead? Well, take advantage of the cadaverous hubbub to approach the city of gambling and rob its casinos.
And, to return to the genre 17 years after its long debut, Snyder has broken down. Here we will not only have zombies, casinos, and casinos full of zombies, but also some undead smarter than ever (even with hints of having created their own culture). And to top it off, an albino zombie tiger, reminiscent of those tacky magic numbers so typical of Las Vegas hotels.
The story follows Scott Ward(Bautista), a displaced Las Vegas local, former zombie war hero, who is one day approached by casino boss Bly Tanaka (Sanada) with the ultimate proposal: break into the quarantine zone. infested with zombies to recover 200 million dollars from a vault, and do it before the city is bombed by the government in 32 hours.
Ward accepts the challenge and gathers a team of experts for the adventure, but in the midst of the heist, he encounters an unexpected emotional roadblock when his daughter Kate (Ella Purnell) joins the expedition to search for Geeta (Huma Qureshi). a mother who has disappeared within the city.
