Dad’s Army

Empire (UK) - - REVIEW - wt

A lik­able cast give it their all, but this re­spect­ful redo of the clas­sic tv sit­com is a pale Xerox of the orig­i­nal. While toby Jones de­serves plau­dits for rein­vent­ing the prig­gish Cap­tain main­war­ing in the face of much slap­stick in­volv­ing bulls and ro­tat­ing black­boards, the jokes are more hit and miss than a rusty Home Guard ri­fle.
