Narrative depth may be in short supply, but the energy, invention and humor are bracing. And let's face it: Sometimes cheese tastes good. -- Andy Webster, New York Times

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. -- Ignatiy Vishnevetsky, AV Club

A WWII found footage horror movie? Yep. And it's good? Yep! -- Scott Weinberg, FEARnet

Designed by Raaphorst and brought to life by Rogier Samuels's effects studio, Unreal, the half-glimpsed creatures are magnificent and repellent. -- Rob Staeger, Village Voice

The found-footage gimmick mostly comes off as window dressing for what turns out to be yet another mad-scientist-run-amok romp. -- Kenju Fujishima, Slant Magazine

Where Frankenstein's Army really shines is with the stunning designs and monster make-up, with the film delivering old-style lumbering monsters without resorting to CGI. -- Mark Adams, Screen International
