For fans of the original TV series, this reboot will feel like a disappointment. For everybody else, a pointless and easily avoidable misfire.

It's not the Dad's Army we know -- it never could be -- but it's an affectionate and well-crafted homage that builds to a climax that is as funny as it is strangely stirring.
