There are scares aplenty in Dawn of the Dead; enjoy them and be well. Twenty years from now, though, I know which version I'll still be watching.

June 20, 2013
One of the genre's best pure zombie-fest films featuring regular folks against an army of the undead.
Full Review | Original Score: 10/10
May 27, 2011
Nicely respectful of the original film, this remake amps up the adrenalin-charged action while skimping on the depth to deliver a gripping but empty-headed thrill-ride.
May 27, 2011
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.
December 22, 2010
Extremely gory horror movie; not for kids.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
April 29, 2009
Will surely appeal to the easily pleased fraction of horror audiences...
December 29, 2008
Director Zack Snyder and writer James Gunn have simply traded one set of time-sensitive issues for more contemporary cliches.

October 18, 2008
The new version of George A Romero's 1979 zombie movie arrives with all the expected technical improvements but abandons the satire that made Romero's film a masterpiece of the genre.
August 7, 2008
Snyder's style is assaultive, and there's little pleasure to the scares.

The remake of Dawn of the Dead is a fun, gory ride, that makes up for its lack of depth with all out action.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4
December 27, 2007
This oddly effective 'reimagining' loses some of the satire but none of the bite of the 1978 George Romero classic.

It's a pretty fun ride.

September 30, 2007
A more preferable kind of remake than one that simply regurgitates the storyline of the original.
July 29, 2007
Unfortunately, or perhaps fortunately for those who feared a true desecration of Romero's masterwork, this is only a moderately competent zombie flick.

January 26, 2006
The remake, from first-time director Snyder, keeps much of the gore and loads up on the laughs, but eschews all pretence at cultural criticism in favour of high-octane, almost nonstop action.
