This is old-fashioned fun until the climactic battle, which almost comes across like routine bone piling after all the flights of fancy.
Jonathan Rosenbaum - Chicago Reader
James Berardinelli - ReelViews
Works in being a spooky and entertaining darkly comedic horror movie...
Felix Vasquez Jr. - Cinema Crazed
Army of Darkness' story is so perfunctory and lame that there's nothing to tether its bits and pieces of loopy madness.
Nick Schager - Lessons of Darkness
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.
Matthew Pejkovic - Matt's Movie Reviews
I'll probably take heat for saying so, but this flick kind of sucks.
Steve "Uncle Creepy" Barton - Dread Central
Raimi and his camera never slow down, which is good because many of the gags don't stand up to scrutiny.
Josh Larsen - LarsenOnFilm
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.
Steve Biodrowski - Cinefantastique
Camp isn't just an undercurrent here--it's the grindhouse force that drives the movie, with Bruce Campbell clearly happy behind the wheel.
Christopher Smith - Bangor Daily News (Maine)
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.
Rob Gonsalves - eFilmCritic.com
A bloody and fairly lifeless witch's brew of medievalism, Jonathan Swift and the Three Stooges.
Thomas Delapa - Boulder Weekly
Geoff Andrew - Time Out
A masterpiece of lunacy and oddball creativity.
Bill Clark - FromTheBalcony
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 a seulement quelques echelons d'Evil Dead II

Die-hard horror buffs beware: 'Army' gives the genre a giant 'Three Stooges'-style slap to the face.

In his own special way, Bruce Campbell is an icon of cool

Oh, the sugar that Raimi once gave.

Jokey, pretty effective, but quickly forgettable.
Ken Hanke - Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
Kevin N. Laforest - Montreal Film Journal
Another wacked out Raimi flick
Mike McGranaghan - Aisle Seat
Cory Cheney - Urban Tulsa Weekly
Good old fashioned middle-age zombi movie with shoot guns and chainsaws.
Stefan Birgir Stefansson - sbs.is
...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.
