Extremely gory horror movie; not for kids.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
March 22, 2004
Zombies chase, heroes shoot, brains explode all over the wall. Rinse and repeat.

I'm not even a George Romero enthusiast, and I can clearly see that the new Dawn of the Dead remake is a joke.

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.

What screenwriter James Gunn and director Zach Snyder have ignored was the subversive, satirical touches Romero infused among all the gross carnage.

April 2, 2004
When there's no more room in hell, the dead and dumb take over Hollywood and make movies like this

February 17, 2004
Doesn't stop to take its breath, and it remains frequently scary in the moment without leaving much to chew on afterwards.

The only enjoyment I had was in making a body count of the dead and guessing who would be the final survivors.

"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.

March 25, 2004
A gross-out horror flick that reveals a total contempt for human life and ends on a predictable note of cynicism.

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.

March 18, 2004
A soulless but speedy redo of George A. Romero's two-hour-plus 1979 original about a mall and flesh-eating zombies.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
March 19, 2004
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.

March 19, 2004
'Fun' moments do peek through the rising piles of bodies, but Dawn can't quite sustain interest because it becomes repetitive and overwhelming.

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.
