Army of Thieves Review

Army of Thieves, prequel to Zach Snyder’s Army of the Dead, focuses on beloved, quirky safecracker Dieter (Matthias Schweighöfer) as he joins a group of thieves to open a trio of safes across Europe. Matthias Schweighöfer directs the film, and Shay Hatten writes the screenplay. Visually, Army of Thieves nails it, and I love the mystery of Hans Wagner’s four safes; the direction is good, but the pacing, dialogue and plot, lack depth and comedic timing. So Army of Thieves is a mix, and it will depend on what the viewer values most.
