After some head scratching, it doesn't take too long to have the answer hit you smack dab in the face. The answer, of course, is money, and in Hollywood there is no stronger motivator than the almighty dollar.

At last, a horror remake worth the watch.
Full Review | Original Score: B+
May 3, 2005
Nicely amplifies George A. Romero's 1978 zombies-at-the-mall horror classic.

An example of an MTV horror reinventon done right, Dawn is a loud zombie-filled action fun-fest that's pure theatrical entertainment.

November 7, 2004
The first 10 minutes make up one of the most exciting beginnings in horror film history.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
November 6, 2004
Less reflective of today's version of mindless horde-driven consumerism and perhaps simply more reflective of today's version of horror movie-making.
Full Review | Original Score: 7/10
October 28, 2004
Nothing fresh or interesting, and it's not scary after the opening scene.
| Original Score: C
October 26, 2004
Un film divertissant et amusant qui risque de plaire au fan de Romero en attendant un nouveau film de sa série.
| Original Score: B

...as hella scary as any zombie movie ever made, and its intensity never lets up for a second.

August 8, 2004
The film, one-note and painfully cynical, is all about bloodletting, impalement, slashing, beheadings, flesh-devouring, massive explosions, human roadkill and foul language, all to the max.

Dawn of the Dead feels well-plotted, well-designed, and well-executed, the best American movie from Spring 2004 short of Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.

July 20, 2004
It's fast-paced, action packed, and desperately cheesy, but completely free of suspense.
| Original Score: 75/100
May 29, 2004
Dawn of the Dead is a gore-ridden action flick with blood and body parts used as punch lines to create a highly enjoyable death fest that everyone who can stomach the sight of blood will enjoy.
Full Review | Original Score: 8/10

A terrifying, perfectly executed piece of grade-A horror that transcends its genre roots even as it resolutely nourishes them.
Full Review | Original Score: A

I'm not even a George Romero enthusiast, and I can clearly see that the new Dawn of the Dead remake is a joke.
Full Review | Original Score: D+
April 23, 2004
This is a leaner, faster-paced movie but it fails to pull the maximum tension out of the storyline and dips seriously in the middle.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

Embora fique devendo o comentário social que transformou o filme original em um clássico, Madrugada dos Mortos é uma produção eficiente e divertida que merece aplausos.

Sarah Polly, Ving Rhames, Jake Webber, and Mekhi Phifer come together very well and are believable in an unbelievable situation.

April 12, 2004
Fun, scary, witty, nerve-wracking, gory, exciting, and jam-packed with sly commentary.
Full Review | Original Score: 4.5/5
April 9, 2004
Basically, it's a very well-photographed and edited B-movie, admirably relying less on bass-chord jump scares than mercilessly ratcheted -- and usually character-based -- dramatic and logistical tension.
