That's half a movie worth of time I will never get back...
"Army of the Damned" was as uneventful as it was non-entertaining.
So what just went wrong here? Well, initially the storyline. Especially because it was lacking a greater coherent red thread throughout the entire course of the movie.
Then comes the fact that the characters and their dialogue was likewise something that you just didn't care about, care for, or could take serious. Which really did nothing to help lift up the movie one bit. It was because of Tony Todd that I sat down to watch this movie, but I had to give up not even halfway into the movie, and I still hadn't seen Tony Todd anywhere. But the prolonged suffering that the movie was exposing me to was just unbearable.
This is branded as a horror movie. Now, were they talking about the contents of the movie, or the actual movie itself. I am inclined to think the latter, especially since there weren't anything even remotely scary or thrilling to be found anywhere.
Sure, there are movies that just immediately are a swing and a miss in each genre, and "Army of the Damned" was just one such movie.
If I had to find something worth recommending that you watch this movie for, I would have to say that if you absolutely have nothing else, I am do literally mean nothing else, to watch, then sure, have a go at this movie. But otherwise, stay well clear of this trainwreck of a movie...
