It's all just one monumental splatterfest...

A stylishly grandiose, muscular but conventional popcorn pageant that's got something for just about everyone.

The energy and inventiveness on display at all levels here - not to mention the sly humor - make Army of the Dead an ass-kicking epic franchise debut.

Snyder's a true believer in go-for-broke escapism and at its best, the mayhem in "Army of the Dead" is an infectious zombie bite of its own.

It's overlong and laboured in places, but worth a bite for the money-shot set-pieces.

Mostly... Zack Snyder just seems to be having genuine fun.

It's a shame that Army of Dead falls so flat, because the concept of a zombie heist movie is undeniably intriguing...

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.

It starts off great. But then it goes on. And on. And on. And takes itself ever more seriously at each turn.

Unwieldy but absorbing, awash in bone-crunching violence, stilted dialogue, ridiculous-verging-on-sublime needle drops (hello, Cranberries) and have-it-both-ways political subtext.

It's a good enough formula, with the makings of a solid piece of pop confection -- and that's basically what Snyder delivers.

It's fun and unpretentious, driven more by its action set pieces than anything else.

Hits the beats you expect from both heist films and zombie flicks while still managing to deliver some fresh mythology of its own.
