Those who decided to invest time in the long-running zombie heist thriller couldn’t help but notice that some scenes had dead pixels on their TV screens.
Pixels have become such a problem that many viewers have wondered if their TVs are malfunctioning. However, the large number of people complaining about the issue on Twitter and Reddit, revealed that the pixels were likely due to a “faulty sensor” on a camera used by Snyder.
Viewers spotted up to three pixels in scenes from one featuring Dave Bautista character Scott Ward discussing the heist with billionaire Bly Tanaka (Hiroyuki Sanada) and another featuring safecracker Ludwig Dieter (Matthias Schweighofer).
A Netflix said they were “raging” over the camera blame.
“It’s not visible in all scenes, because only one of the cameras (I’m evaluating three) has a faulty sensor.” one Reddit user wrote, adding, “For example, you can see it clearly in the reverse photo of Dave Bautista when he sits in the restaurant at the start of the movie. “
Another person asked how the pixels weren’t removed in post, saying, “I’m amazed Zack didn’t notice. “
Despite the technical snafu, reviews for the film were largely positive, with the majority of reviewers giving the film three stars.
The independentClarisse Loughrey wrote: “It is Dawn of the Dead meetsOcean’s Eleven, “Adding that it creates a whole new cocktail of familiar rhythms”.
There’s a theory going around that makes people want to watch the movie again. This suggests that the characters are trapped in an infinite time loop.
Army of the dead is available to stream on Netflix now.
