A cool Bad-ass zombie movie with such awesome and cool sense with the zombie kills and the humans kills as well.

It could have been sooo much better. So much better. Great story and premise; poor acting, worse writing! Still it is a great movie. One can only imagine that these fortresses are what the world would resort to once the battle against the dead is lost. And the social class system would still reign and persecute the lower class.

Just when you think Romero can't do any more with zombies, he brings us a story about obsession and post-apocalyptic control that presents some bold visuals and more social commentary.

The C list cast certainly don't help, as all are rather bland and uninteresting as they go through the sci-fi action motions of running around shooting zombies with big guns. Fans can spot some cameos by various undead characters from the previous films and …

Solid Edition to the Zombie Genre

After a 20 year hiatus George Romero returned to the genre he created with Land of the Dead. Like it’s three predecessors, it is much more thought provoking than the typical zombie film. Much of the film takes place in an isolated city, closed off from the barren wastelands that surround it by a large river and an electric fence.

The film presents us with the concept of intelligent zombies, originally explored by Romero in Day of the Dead. The zombies begin to remember who they were before they perished and also wise up to a few of our tricks. This means trouble as Big Daddy leads a following of zombies towards the city walls. The film also toys with the idea that we are an equal threat to ourselves as our undead counterparts.

I wish more time would have been spent exploring …
