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

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars More than just Zombie Cliches 20 Sep 2011
By Magic Lemur VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
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.
Like watching an original Wes Craven movie (as opposed to a franchised sequel), the watered-down version often marrs the original.
But if you're fearing this film is a lemon, then don't worry - it's not.

3.0 out of 5 stars Someone shot the little fatman.... 4 Feb 2014
Format:Blu-ray
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome fun Zombie movie 27 Jan 2014
By Gizzy
Format:DVD
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!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Even zombies get the blues 16 Mar 2010
Format:DVD
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....

4.0 out of 5 stars A Return to Form 7 Sep 2009
By Peter
Format:DVD
Land of the Dead is far from perfect, but - if we're to be honest - neither were Romero's other zombie movies.

Before anyone takes umbrage with the fact that I can pick faults in Classics of the Dead, please let me point out that I'm a massive fan of Romero's work, and the attraction of his films lies in their energy, invention, character development and general 'feel' rather than airtight plot or production values.

On the subject of production values, Romero has proven long ago that he can make an epic from nothing, and that's stood him in good stead with Land of the Dead. The success of 28 Days Later and the Dawn remake might have secured the movie deal and given him a larger-than-average budget for this kind of film, but the technology for creating new worlds and special effects has taken quantum leaps since Day of the Dead was released in the mid Eighties. The result is that Romero can finally produce a movie on the kind of scale we all wanted while still working within a modest budget.

I haven't read many comments from Romero following the release of Land of the Dead, but I get the impression that too many corporate fingers were in the production pie, given the way he ran off to go guerilla-indie with Diary of the Dead. If there was corporate interference on this project, it honestly hasn't detracted from the fun of the film. It's a thoroughly entertaining piece of work.

Yes, the learning zombies are a tad cheesy, and yes, some of the less sympathetic characters are left quite one-dimensional, but the overall effect is a great piece of escapism. You can take all sorts of social or political allegories from it if you want, but in the end, it's a bloody good rollercoaster ride.
