Frankenstein’s Army (2013) Review:

After “Shock Waves”, “Outpost” or the excellent “Dead Snow”, Frankenstein’s Army adds up to the ever-growing list of Nazi Zombie films. The difference here lies in the fact that we are not exactly facing the usual zombies but a fascinating mix between zombies and machines, something like trying to combine your dead cat with a mixer…in a more evolved way. The monsters in the army of Dr. Frankenstein are just awesome, some of the most innovative zombies ever shown on screen. Too bad the film does not come up to such standards.

What’s most annoying in the film itself is this feeling that you’re not watching a proper movie, but playing a video-game instead (a Doom-like one) or, to be more precise, visiting a haunted house in an amusement park.

The film starts with a classic introduction of the characters, who terribly lacked depth and background in my opinion. The rest of the film consists of an exploration (or a visit) of this army underground facility, with his lot of monsters coming out of corners. The interested of the film then relies exclusively on the monsters. Their crazy SM-like look is the only reason for the 5 / 10 of a film that otherwise dramatically lacks a story and some character development. It is a fairly fun movie to watch, in the way B-movies are, but not a good film.
