What a piece of crap. Critics and other people like it but I think this is because they have not seen the original Evil Dead trilogy before this. When they see this then they would know. I really wanted to like this film and give it a chance but it just keeps embarrassing itself and the trilogy. The beginning had much promise and showed the events that were only discussed a little bit in the original film and some of the kills were actually pretty awesome. I can see some of the new things being put into the film but it eliminates what the original was so popular. The humor, a big part of what made the first so good, is completely eliminated and some of the jokes that the characters were trying to say were just not funny. The one liners that Bruce Campbell said were amazing and had the perfect timing. In this film, especially toward the end, the one liners were not right and were forced instead of being in the moment. The characters are just people that you want to see killed in an instant. The characters in the original were great and you cared about them but in this film these characters do not like like each other and no motivation to care for them. The concept of the relationship between the brother and sister is meh at best and was just not there. In the original film, you feel bad for Ash when his girl is trapped by the evil dead book. In this film you didnt want the girl to survive and she tends out to be the final girl, that sucked. Also the main guy character is just a loser at best. Ash was first a shy character but later turned to be a bad ass. This film though, he was just a wuss and would not do the necessary things in order to survive. The gore is good, but replacing the humor in order for this is just bad. Finally, the writing in this film is just horrible. The would be jokes are bad and the dialogue is just boring, useless, and brings nothing big to the table for people that know the original film already. What an overhyped piece of garbage. Hollywood, stop remaking classic horror films, they are going to make money but you are ruining the original source material and the legacy as well. Look at the remakes of Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Psycho, Friday the 13th and Nightmare on Elm Street and you'll know what I'm talking about. Stop doing this to classic horror films and stay away from this film at all costs.
