Frankenstein's Army (2013) is a horror movie set during World War II, following a group of Russian soldiers on a mission to locate other Russian troops in a small, abandoned German village. The movie is shot in found-footage style, using the character's cameras to give the viewer a first-person point of view throughout the film. As the soldiers make their way through the village, they come across a mysterious laboratory. Inside they find a mad scientist named Viktor, who starts to give life to an army of zombies made of metal and flesh. The soldiers struggle to fight off the monsters as they race against time to find their missing comrades and escape the village.

The monster designs in Frankenstein's Army are some of the film's most impressive aspects. Referred to as "zombots", the monsters are made up of strange amalgamations of metal parts and corpses. Each zombot appears to have a unique design and ability, making for an array of terrifying foes for the soldiers to face.

The film also does a great job of creating a creepy and unsettling atmosphere. The abandoned village and laboratory feel oppressive and claustrophobic, while the zombots are genuinely unsettling to watch. The found-footage style further adds to the film's immersive and intense feeling.

The Russian soldiers themselves are a diverse group of characters, each with their own personalities and motivations. We see them face challenges both from the zombots and from each other, as their loyalties and fears are tested. While some may not be fleshed out as well as others, the actors all do a great job with what they are given.

Despite these strengths, the film does falter in certain areas. The found-footage style can be disorienting and can make it hard to follow what is happening at times. Some of the character's actions also feel forced or nonsensical, undercutting the tension the film builds up.

Overall, Frankenstein's Army is a solid horror film that leans into its unique and creative monster designs. While it may not be the most polished or coherent movie, it is certainly one that horror fans should check out.

Frankenstein's Army is a 2013 action movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 24 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 5.4 and a MetaScore of 49.
