Army of Darkness (1992) is the direct sequel to my previously reviewed film….. The Evil Dead II.

Starring none other than the big boy of B-Movie badassness… Bruce Campbell (I enjoyed the sound of all those b’s). Ash (Bruce’s character) is catapulted from the present right into the medieval era, where the book of the dead has, yet again, been unleashed (obviously by Bruce….). He quickly becomes the hero to these people and amply shows off his boom stick. (his gun you perverts… I know what you were thinking!!). To cut a long story short, Bruce must save the country from the blight of the undead in order to be sent back home.

This movie has got quite a few hilarious moments. The terribly bad jokes and puns are just sooo bad, they’re hilarious!!. Still as gory as ever, if you liked the Evil Dead II, you’re definitely in for a treat. By far one of Bruce Campbell’s better films but not quite as funny as it’s prequel.

The only problem I have with this movie are the sub-characters. The one or two there are we don’t really get to know and in all honesty, we don’t really get to care much about. Beneath the skull splitting monster-killing action, there are a few sub-plots, however they’re quite basic (probably due to the fact that in the end, this is a B-Movie).

Acting – 4/5 (BRUCE CAMPBELL!!!!)

Plot – 3/5

Enjoyability – 4/5

Overall – 3.5/5
