Army Of Thieves: Trailer Talk

Army Of Thieves

May 2021 saw ‘Justice League’ director Zack Snyder return to the zombie genre after 17 years, with the Netflix Original ‘Army of the Dead’. Starring Dave Bautista (Guardians of the Galaxy), it was a fun and enjoyable, but long, heist adventure set during a zombie apocalypse. Overall, it was great to see Snyder return to the subgenre. And due to the film’s success, a second film is coming to Netflix!

‘Army of Thieves’ is a prequel that sees Ludwig Dieter (Matthias Schweighöfer) take the leading role as the safecracker, who will now lead a team of thieves into a heist during the early stages of the zombie outbreak. 

The trailer utilizes the same editing trick as the trailers for ‘Baby Driver’ and ‘Hobbs and Shaw’ which is to have the shots edited to the beat of the backing track that’s playing, making this a satisfying one to watch. However, while this is the case, it falls into the categories of ‘it would be better if this wasn’t connected to the previous entry’ while also feeling too similar to the previous entry. Change the location and the main cast, and it’s essentially the same film as before. 

Overall ‘Army of Thieves’ sounds like an interesting idea on paper, and the trailer is fantastically edited, but it just feels too similar to the previous film. Hopefully I am proven wrong, and it delivers an enjoyable and fun film, just like ‘Army’, but only time will tell. 

‘Army of Thieves’ arrives on Netflix later this year.
