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.Read more ›
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.
And you know that last line pains me because Romero is a God to me. His original trilogy of films are great works of art pure horror. The best Zombie flicks ever. Full stop.
Land of the Dead is a poor cousin indeed. The plot may have looked good on paper but transfers to film poorly. The black zombie who is the leader of the pack is just plain annoying and is as scary as George from Rainbow. Even the usually excellent Dennis Hooper is poorly misused. The main cast are not likeable, the gore filled CGI is awful. A good photo shop job. We have come to something where the gore in Day of the Dead from 1985 looks more realistic than today's computer generated stuff.
I feel obliged to hate on the so called expert critics, the same ones who slammed Romero's earlier films but liked this movie.
Sorry this movie is not for true horror fans of the genre.
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....
