Product Description

Fourth instalment in director George A. Romero's zombie sequence. With the living dead having now taken over much of the world, the few survivors left have retreated to a fortified city, where the rich live in penthouse apartments while the poor suffer on the streets below. Governed by the corrupt Kaufman (Dennis Hopper), the city comes under threat when the impoverished population begin to demand a change in leadership and it becomes obvious that the army of zombies outside the city walls is beginning to adapt to its surroundings.

From Amazon.co.uk

Bolstered by the success of 28 Days Later, Shaun of the Dead, the Resident Evil movies and the hit remake of his own Dawn of the Dead, George A. Romero returns to the horror subgenre he invented with Land of the Dead. The fourth installment in Romero's zombie cycle (and the first since 1985's Day of the Dead) presents a logical progression of events since 1968's horror classic Night of the Living Dead: Zombies (also known as "stenches" for their rotting odor) are the dominant population, and they've begun to show signs of undead intelligence and gathering power. The wealthiest survivors live comfortably in a luxury high-rise within a barricaded safe zone, ignoring the horrors of the outside world while armed scavengers stage raids in the zombie-zone to gather much-needed food and supplies. Simon Baker and John Leguizamo play mercenaries-for-hire; Dennis Hopper is their nefarious boss; and horror favorite Asia Argento (daughter of Suspiria director Dario Argento) plays a former hooker recruited into Baker's scavenger squad. While none of this seems particularly fresh or inspired, Land of the Dead benefits from hints of the social satire that made Romero's earlier zombie films so memorable. Not so much funny as gruesomely peculiar, Romero's plot isn't as inventive as it could've been, but as a big-scale B-movie, Land of the Dead delivers a handful of shocks and horror-celebrity cameos (including gore-masters Tom Savini and Greg Nicotero) that should keep horror buffs happy until the next zombie opus comes along. --Jeff Shannon

The living dead have overtaken humanity. The last remnants of the human race live inside a walled city as they come to grips with the situation.

The wealthy live in sealed skyscrapers as the poor fend for themselves on the streets.

Protecting them is an enormous tank called Dead Reckoning, controlled by a group of people led by Riley.

But when Riley loses command of the tank to an insane man bent on destroying the city, he must save it from Dead Reckoning as those who walk beyond the walls of the city slowly develop new abilities and become a much greater threat to humankind.....

In my opinion, it's much better than day of the dead and the movies after this, but let's be honest, would this film really have been made if Shaun of the Dead hadn't been released, and if it had, would it really have the budget this film had? Baker the main hero in this is just bland. He has no desperation about him, and just spends the majority of the film, looking like one of the undead.

So thank heavens for Leguizamo and Hopper, who make this film the watchable horror that it is. LOTD really tries hard in the consumerist edge, but it ends up looking more like it's borrowed from Dawn, than be original.

There are some good scenes though, everything featuring Big Dadyy is just lovely to look at, and at times Romero depicts the zombies as the victims.

All in all it's a fun movie, not necessary, but fun anyhow.

First time I watched this, I hated it. It felt like a cheap 80's Hollywood movie, in the same vein as an Airwolf film. The acting is rubbishy and the story line is week. How the person which created the previous three, the Crazies and Martin allowed this to happen utterly confused me (im concerned by the people that have abused 'Day' on here, its a masterpiece, conveying utter futility), so I thought I would give it another watch.
All the reasons I hated it the first time, either by design or luck, seemed to give the movie context second time round. The embarrassment which was the human's story just served to reiterate the new found dignity and humanity of the undead, which is exactly the point of the of the overall story arc, Im guessing Romero doesnt do luck. So if youve only seen this once, youre a fan and you didnt like it, try it again, it sits well with others. As for 'Diary', that really is a piece of....

I don't think I'd have watched this film if a friend of mine hadn't made me. It seemed that it would be a bunch of slow-walking lame actors saying things like "brains" and catching credulous bimbos who do not have the good sense to run.

Not only is this film more than that, it is actually a very watchable film. Having not encountered a George Romero film before (except via many inaccurate parodies), I wasn't aware that there is proper direction and a decent plot at its heart.

Although occasionally you may shout at the screen as the charactors end up splitting up or abandoning safety for stupid reasons, it is still compelling viewing and there is enough suspense, gore and horror to make a highly entertaining film.

It's also worth mentioning that there is almost a Greek fable quality to the film, with stupid selfish humans ending up being horribly mauled while the more enlightened humans escape the zombies' clutches.

Lastly there is the acting, with the guy who plays The Mentalist doing a sterling job as the lead, and Dennis Hopper doing his usual best as the villain of the film. Furthermore, none of the acting comes across as hammy, and I didn't see any scenes which were stilted or not believable.

To sum up, although slow-walking Zombie films may seem ten-a-penny, really the work of an original master is beyond the sordid cliches of his imitators.

Land of the Dead is one of the best zombie movies for many reasons. Firstly Simon Baker makes a very likeable hero in the film. Secondly Asia Argento is awesome. Thridly Robert Joy is a great and again likeable sidekick to Simon Baker. Fourth Dennis Hopper is a vile and loathsome villian. Fith Dead Reconing!!!! The Ultimate Anti-zombie ride. Lastly,some great gore and action too. Buy this if you do not have it!!!

I have always been a fan of Zombie flicks and George's ability to make a good horror film whilst still including a very deep social commentary is what makes his films stand out....
The film revolves around the last human city, ran by Kaufman (Dennis Hopper) the rest of the world it would seem is overran by the zombie hordes. Of course even in this post zombie apocolyptic world, power and money it seems are king. Kaufman decides who gets in and who remains on the outskirts of the sanctuary.
The strangest thing about this film, that frankly I expected to really dislike is that Romero has in some ways humanised the zombies, strange as that sounds.
Although most are of course relatively mindless the main lead zombie played by Eugene Clark seems to retain a little of the intellect of his living counterpart and in ways leads the zombies.
This gives a strong contrast to the humans and leaves you wondering who the true monsters really are. This aspect is the films strength adding to the social commentary but at the same time its weakness. Frankly I couldnt decide if I should be cheering for the living or the dead. After a while I didnt worry and just let myself enjoy the action. It did feel wrong to be pitying the zombies, but maybe thats what George intended. If you can pity the monsters when compared to humans then we truly are lost.
The film is quite gory, with plenty of dark humour that is needed in this kind of film. For me it wasnt quite as good as the remake of Dawn of the Dead, but I enjoyed it none the less and will be buying it when its available on DVD.
I was borderline giving it 4 stars but that would be my rating for the remake of Dawn of the Dead and I feel this one fell short of that mark.
