Somehow, this is even more over-the-top and ridiculous than the previous movies. I really hate the reliance on CGI in these.
Jason Statham plays the same "character" (come on, at this point we all know he's a badass in real life and being an actor is just his cover) he always seems to play. Despite plastering Dwayne Johnson all over the promos, he's sidelined for pretty much the entire movie.
The beach scene at the end of the movie is…
This is one of my favorite films ever. It is the perfect blend of sci-fi and horror. The special effects are so well done; modern movies should watch The Thing and weep in shame.
The characters, the paranoia, the sense of claustrophobic doom, it's all brilliantly done.
I watched this movie when I was decently young, so it holds a special place in my heart as being one of the few films that ever managed to scare me.
Just found my MGM Region 3 Director's Cut buried in a pile of DVDs. Groovy.
The movie is 93 minutes long with some alternate takes and the original ending. It's awesome, though I do miss "Good. Bad. I'm the guy with the gun."
Army of Darkness is a ridiculous, campy, over-the-top slapstick comedy in which the goofy Ash manages to make life a lot more difficult for everyone he meets. There really is nothing like a Bruce Campbell one-liner.
