Come on George :(,
This review is from: Land of the Dead: Directors Cut with Limited Edition theatrical poster (Exclusive to Amazon.co.uk) [DVD] (DVD)
The master of zombie horror is back! George Romero returns with his fourth installment of the ultimate zombie movies. The question is what made these movies so special and what went wrong with Land of the Dead?
In my humble opinion these movies are great because of the siege mentality. A small group of survivors in a house, shopping mall, military base, fortified city (take your pick!) surronded by creatures that are slow and with little intellect but numbers overwhelming.... you know that survivors are living on borrowed time.
This fourth movie moves away from the unthinking zombies as they begin to evolve.... good storyline, great make-up, poor acting. Thats why this movie gets three stars from me - poor acting. Okay its a zombie movie you say, the acting is never that great in horror. Well I disagree. The three previous movies contained some amazing acting and the remake of Dawn of the Dead was filled with great acting from Sarah P. and Ving R.
Come on George, get the acting up to standard and an oscar will be waiting!!!!
