Plot summary

What is Army of the Dead movie plot?

Here is a short review of "Army of the Dead" movie plot summary.

In the United States, a U.S. military convoy transports an unknown payload from Area 51 when it is struck by a car driven by distracted newlyweds. The payload container is compromised, unleashing a superhuman zombie that kills the soldiers while infecting two of them. The zombies head to Las Vegas, causing a large outbreak which devastates the city. The military's intervention fails, forcing the government to quarantine the city by setting up walls around Vegas.
Former mercenary Scott Ward (Dave Bautista) is approached by casino owner Bly Tanaka (Hiroyuki Sanada) and his associate Martin (Garret Dillahunt) about a job to steal over $200 million from his casino vault before the military destroys the city with a tactical nuclear strike. Ward agrees and recruits his former teammates Maria Cruz (Ana de la Reguera) and Vanderohe (Omari Hardwick), along with helicopter pilot Marianne Peters (Tig Notaro), German safecracker Ludwig Dieter (Matthias Schweighöfer), and Mexican sharpshooter Mikey Guzman (Raúl Castillo), who brings along his associate Chambers (Samantha Win). Martin also joins the team to observe them. To infiltrate Vegas, they enlist the help of Ward's daughter Kate (Ella Purnell), who works at the quarantine camp just outside the city. It is revealed that Kate became estranged from her father after he was forced to kill her mother when she turned into a zombie. Kate directs them to Lily (Nora Arnezeder), who is familiar with the city. Lily also recruits Burt Cummings (Theo Rossi), the security guard for the quarantine camp, for undisclosed reasons. When Kate learns that Lily had escorted her friend Geeta (Huma Qureshi) into the city, Kate insists on joining the team to look for her, much to Ward's objections.
