The climactic battle between the living and the dead that closes the picture is well done yet disappointingly lacking in thrills...

Only a primitive screwhead would find zero entertainment value in the third Evil Dead movie.

More than anything, Army of Darkness is a tribute to the Ray Harryhausen adventure epics (Clash of the Titans, Sinbad, and the like) that Sam Raimi grew up loving.

Sam Raimi's Army of Darkness delivers a great conclusion to what is one of the most unique trilogies in cinema history, providing a ton of laughs and plenty of exciting action in the process.

A loopy work of imagination that never fails to be entertaining.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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

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

Army of Darkness s'impose comme un film diablement amusant, un summum dans le genre et à seulement quelques échelons d'Evil Dead II
