A loopy work of imagination that never fails to be entertaining.
| Original Score: 8/10
Works in being a spooky and entertaining darkly comedic horror movie...
Army of Darkness' story is so perfunctory and lame that there's nothing to tether its bits and pieces of loopy madness.
| Original Score: C+
Containing less of the blood soaked insanity of the previous two instalments, Army of Darkness comes off as more of an adventure film with a horror element attached to it.
| Original Score: 3.5/5
Raimi turns his back on the horror genre that brought him fame in the first place and delivers instead a cartoonish sword-and-sorcery fantasy, albeit one with some pretty cool monsters and special effects.
| Original Score: 3/5
I'll probably take heat for saying so, but this flick kind of sucks.
| Original Score: 2.5/5
This is old-fashioned fun until the climactic battle, which almost comes across like routine bone piling after all the flights of fancy.
Raimi and his camera never slow down, which is good because many of the gags don't stand up to scrutiny.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
a director, Raimi's strength lies in his manic inventiveness %u2013 which is somewhat in abeyance here, as he tries injecting some traditional plot elements into the old formula.
Camp isn't just an undercurrent here--it's the grindhouse force that drives the movie, with Bruce Campbell clearly happy behind the wheel.
| Original Score: B+
Raimi approaches this scenario as if someone had given him a deep pail of Magic Markers and told him to draw the ultimate comic book.
| Original Score: 5/5
A bloody and fairly lifeless witch's brew of medievalism, Jonathan Swift and the Three Stooges.
| Original Score: 1/4
A masterpiece of lunacy and oddball creativity.
| Original Score: A-
To watch the movie is to join its chaotic flow of hyperactive energy.
| Original Score: 4/4
Army of Darkness s'impose comme un film diablement amusant, un summum dans le genre et à seulement quelques échelons d'Evil Dead II
Die-hard horror buffs beware: 'Army' gives the genre a giant 'Three Stooges'-style slap to the face.
| Original Score: 10/10
In his own special way, Bruce Campbell is an icon of cool
| Original Score: 4/5
Oh, the sugar that Raimi once gave.
| Original Score: 4/5
Jokey, pretty effective, but quickly forgettable.
