The first opinions about Zack Synder's zombie action movie have been revealed.

Official reviews of Army of the Dead arrive tomorrow, but ahead of that, critics have started posted their reactions on Twitter. So far the response is extremely positive, with the action, cast, and sense of humor all coming in for praise. Some critics state that movie doesn't sustain the fun for the entire movie, on the whole, initial reactions suggest this is one that horror and action fans will want to watch. Check out some of the reactions below.
Army of The Dead is a violent, gory, and bloody blast. Zack Snyder’s latest is a ridiculously fun and over the top genre bending zombie film. While the entire cast is great, Matthias Schweighöfer steals every scene. Oh, and the opening credits are absolutely epic. #ArmyoftheDead pic.twitter.com/6Seg3l1AFG— Scott Menzel (@ScottDMenzel) May 10, 2021
Army of the Dead: Zack Snyder is having an absolute blast, delivering a jaw dropping/jaw-removing) amount of slo-mo bloodshed. The gore and mayhem on display is lovingly captured and, more importantly, gleefully faceted within the film. #ArmyOfTheDead— Phil Nobile Jr. (@PhilNobileJr) May 10, 2021
#ArmyOfTheDead’s opening credits sequence is delicious, pure camp. While the rest of the film doesn’t sustain that tone (& meanders), there are lots of wild, deftly executed concepts & scenes centered on the heist. Even more audacious is there’s an unexpected infusion of heart. pic.twitter.com/TPGFC2nG2I— Courtney Howard (@Lulamaybelle) May 10, 2021
All I’ll say about Army of the Dead for now is that Zack Snyder should direct more zombie movies. Full review tomorrow.— Brian Tallerico (@Brian_Tallerico) May 10, 2021
Army of the Dead is a whole lot of fun. I'm genuinely excited to see more about a certain group of zombies in the future. Lots of gory, undead fun. Also, Tig Notaro is the BEST! #ArmyoftheDead pic.twitter.com/cxgGm4PBSW— Jenna Busch (@JennaBusch) May 10, 2021
#ArmyOfTheDead is bloody fun! Has great zombie action, character banter & killer music. Also, quite funny. Loved the world created by @ZackSnyder & that every character has a moment to shine. His style matches perfectly with the zombie genre. Opening credits are 🔥#ZombieVerse pic.twitter.com/vhbaKjX8KV— Fico (@FicoCangiano) May 10, 2021
I found myself wanting more from #ArmyOfTheDead overall. It's well cast and often funny. But despite blending the heist/zombie genres, there's not much newness added to either. One or two fresh setpieces amid familiar blood n gore, but outside of that, you've seen it more or less pic.twitter.com/u4Bd0Ra5Ap— Brandon Katz (@Great_Katzby) May 10, 2021
Army of the Dead stars Dave Bautista, lla Purnell, Ana de la Reguera, Garret Dillahunt, Omari Hardwick, Theo Rossi, and Tig Notaro. It's directed and co-written by Snyder. The movie will also play in over 600 theaters ahead of its Netflix release later this week.
In related news, Bautista has stated that next year's Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 will be his final appearance as Drax. "I've got Guardians 3, and that's probably going to be the end of Drax," he said.
