It's a bravura if deeply silly demonstration of what clever moviemakers can do on meager resources.

Frankenstein's Army is a ludicrous World War II horror flick bogged down by its found-footage gimmick, which is compromised and contradicted so often that it becomes a distraction.

Cinema Crazed

Just feels like great potential was wasted on a movie interested in gore and shock value over atmosphere and genuine terror.

There's little more in the way of plot, but that's no problem. "Frankenstein's Army" is funny and original, with innovative costumes and set designs.

As a fright flick it more or less fails. But as an example of how to make genuinely creepy monsters in this new, CG heavy age, it's a masterwork.

'Frankenstein's Army'. Big Daddys and the like from BioShock with a much shakier cam than the game offers. Didn't work for me.

Found footage films have always been hit or miss. It's certainly a refuge for lazy filmmakers, who want to make a movie for cheap or they can't… More
