Save your quarters for the video game.
| Original Score: 1/5
Extremely gory horror movie; not for kids.
| Original Score: 2/5
Zombies chase, heroes shoot, brains explode all over the wall. Rinse and repeat.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
I'm not even a George Romero enthusiast, and I can clearly see that the new Dawn of the Dead remake is a joke.
| Original Score: D+
Snyder's style is assaultive, and there's little pleasure to the scares.
The new version has its share of disturbing moments, but writer James Gunn and director Zack Snyder have stripped away the social satire of the original and put little in its place.
Will surely appeal to the easily pleased fraction of horror audiences...
Shame on all involved.
| Original Score: 1/4
What screenwriter James Gunn and director Zach Snyder have ignored was the subversive, satirical touches Romero infused among all the gross carnage.
| Original Score: 2/4
When there's no more room in hell, the dead and dumb take over Hollywood and make movies like this
| Original Score: 1.5/4
Doesn't stop to take its breath, and it remains frequently scary in the moment without leaving much to chew on afterwards.
| Original Score: 2/4
The only enjoyment I had was in making a body count of the dead and guessing who would be the final survivors.
| Original Score: C
"When there're no more original ideas in Hollywood, the studios will opt to remake." And, in first-time director Zack Snyder's case, poorly.
A gross-out horror flick that reveals a total contempt for human life and ends on a predictable note of cynicism.
| Original Score: 0/5
Romero's movie was both scary and satiric, but this reprise, directed by British TV-ad wiz Zack Snyder, is neither.
Mr. Snyder's blood feast is strictly by the numbers: this second-rater could be the world's most expensive Troma film.
A soulless but speedy redo of George A. Romero's two-hour-plus 1979 original about a mall and flesh-eating zombies.
Few of the original movie's political and philosophical preoccupations (abortion, capitalism, patriotism, individualism) remain. Instead, the remake feels like the product of the PlayStation era.
'Fun' moments do peek through the rising piles of bodies, but Dawn can't quite sustain interest because it becomes repetitive and overwhelming.
| Original Score: C+
A remake of the 1978 George Romero cult-classic, it has no purpose of its own, except to exploit the latest advances in gore effects.
