Army of Thieves is a prequel to Zack Snyder’s Army of the Dead and the second in the franchise. One thing we can clearly vouch for is that it is not a zombie movie, but a heist. The movie focuses on the story of one of the most popular original characters, safecracker Ludwig Deiter. Moreover, the movie is set six years before the events of the Army of the Dead. Long story short, Deiter is a newbie and just starts his career when he gets hired by a group of fellow thieves. The mission is to break into three notorious safes while the city witnesses a zombie virus outbreak. So, let’s talk about characters other than Deiter. Let’s go!
Matthias Schweighöfer As Ludwig Deiter
First and foremost, the center of attention is Matthias Schweighöfer’ Ludwig Dieter who’s reprising his Army of the Dead role. The love for his profession is clearly in the movie and is explained well enough in Army of Thieves as well. He is persuaded to join the team by Nathalie Emmanuel’s mysterious Gwendoline.
Nathalie Emmanuel As Gwendoline
She’s the leader of the heist and is a mysterious character whose motives are not clearly apparent in the movie. While being skilled in hand-to-hand combat, she is also the main love interest of Deiter in the movie. She’s famously known for her role as Missandei in Game of Thrones.
Guz Khan As Rolph
He is easily one of the most crucial members of the proposed heist and also the team’s getaway driver. He is a slightly maniacal car expert and definitely a high-speed chase lover as the trailer showed him laughing in the same sequence, while the passenger was recoiling in fear.
Ruby O. Fee As Korina
Only so pivotal to the story, she’s the master hacker of the team and also responsible for finding the three safes. Even though she’s not as intimidating as other members, she is constantly seen blowing bubblegum and hacking various computer systems. For the actresses, she’s best known for her roles in The Invisibles and Polar.
Stuart Martin As Brad Cage
You can figure out by his looks that he is supposed to be the muscle and the enforcer of the group. He is literally described as the team’s “very own real-life action hero.” It is even seen in the trailer that he is a focused man, and a strong one too. He is seen taking down security personnel and keeping a straight face while dealing with Deiter’s whimsical approach. Whereas for the actor, the movie is his first major appearance.
Supporting Cast And Characters
Jonathan Cohen as Delacroix: He plays a police detective, rather dimly, who is after the main cast of the film.
Noemie Nakai as Beatrix: She plays a less senior member of the police force tasked with stopping the Army of Thieves.
Hiroyuki Sanada as Bly Tanaka: He reprises his role as billionaire Tanaka from Army of the Dead. Even though his character remains limited here too, he is still relevant to the plot. So, have you seen the movie yet? Let us know what you think about it in the comments below.
