Army of Darkness' story is so perfunctory and lame that there's nothing to tether its bits and pieces of loopy madness.

...a comical send-up of sword-and-sorcery epics...filled with imaginative touches, but long flat stretches, too, and a good deal of sophomoric humor.

I'll probably take heat for saying so, but this flick kind of sucks.

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.

A bloody and fairly lifeless witch's brew of medievalism, Jonathan Swift and the Three Stooges.

Raimi and his camera never slow down, which is good because many of the gags don't stand up to scrutiny.

To watch the movie is to join its chaotic flow of hyperactive energy.

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.
