this is an awesome film and the zombies are extremely cool - they are active and are completely different to many other films. The cast is really good and the acting is amazing.

This is a good movie. Action packed with likable and dislikable characters.

I can see mixed reviews for this zombie film on Amazon but disagree with most of them. This is certainly not the best but it is a solid, watchable, well-acted & enjoyable film.

Romero knows what you want & serves it up. It is perhaps not the feast you were after but it has a good story with some interesting characters. Sure, there is no great twists, it's not Dickens alhthough the film has some good sets & stunts.

It presents a fascinating Romero-view of a city surviving in a land of the dead. You may not like the style of government but hey at least they are alive. I think this story could have gone on to make the basis of a decent TV series.

So, if you are looking for a dependable zombie-flick for a good evening then give it a shot - try buying used - I got one at a great price...

It seems that George Romero has made the mistake as many in the entertainment industry: Sacrificing their art for a pathetic pot shot at the Bush administration and America's foreign policy. Okay, so a little political subtext can add a welcome extra dimension to a film and certainly Night, Dawn and Day all wielded social and political aspects to their plots, but they were subtle. And Land of the Dead isn't. `We don't negotiate with terrorists' drawls Hopper at one point, doing his best impersonation of old George W.

`I'm going to do a Jihad on his ass' enthuses John Leguziamo at another, no doubt inspired by those people who, previously trained and equipped by the US, now find themselves the subject of its aggression. How pathetic. Why not just call the film: `Western people are all bad... with zombies.'

Sadly the problems with the film stretch beyond hideous, unwanted political grandstanding (see Bono for details): while this film sports production values that make it easily the equal of its predecessors the story is just too lame and listless to survive. The tenuousness of zombies, during their short, decomposing lifespan somehow `evolving' and focussing their undead rage on the barricaded tower block that houses the rich (therefore evil) people who run the show is just sad. Further nails are hammered into the coffin by the awful acting, particularly that of the `lead' zombie and the charisma-bypass hero of the piece.

There are a few things that stand out, Asia Argento provides acting skills that are well cut out for this kind of work as well as being damn good looking. The sets too are fantastic, although sadly we see very little of them. And that, unfortunately is the crux of the matter. There are so many things in the film that could have made it brilliant: Dead Reckoning (confined to the background), the tower block (wasn't it crying out for a siege), the sleazy underbelly of the city (gets about 5 minutes screen time). But in the end, the films short run time is filled up with idiotically shallow character development and impotent action scenes.

George Romero invented this genre, he gave us 3 life-changing horror films and directly inspired a raft of awesome video games and films, so forgive me for saying it, but this is just bilge-water.

As a huge fan of Night, Dawn and Day of the Dead I anticipated for years for Romero to make another zombie movie. After watching this sad excuse for a movie I wish he had retired a long time ago.

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.
