Comes in Second to the Original but An Excellent Zombie Flick, Wish they would make a Sequel!

Don't listen to the Tomatometer or even the audience score. This movie sucks.

One of the best zombie films ever, Brilliant remake and most of the cast were fun a few annoying ones but they get what's coming to them, The zombies looked great and the action scenes were entertaining and gory, What more do you want from a zombie film.

This is practically the first time they made running zombies. It was sentimentally making us feel scared of zombies.

Dawn of the Dead: The movie's fast paced and very similar action sequences don't create anything special to the horror or zombie genre. The movie is predictable and very basic in terms of the script. The movie was entertaining but nothing special here.

Although the movie steals the "fast zombie" idea from "28 Days Later", "Dawn of the Dead" is one of the better zombie films in the past decade

It's okay. The action is good and the camera angles are up-and-close. The only problem is that the colors are too vivid, which kills the whole "zombie" mood.

Complete waste of film when compared to the original. Just what you'd expect from a modern remake.

Great homage and and interesting remake. One of Snyder's best works to date, and it's his debut!

Action-packed, intense, and occasionally funny, Dawn of the Dead succeeds as both horror movie and as remake. The cast is top-notch, and the Zombie Celebrity scene is the highlight of the film.

Thrilling with suspense for a horror movie ?

Despite the way it ends, this film kept me from going to sleep for almost a month! That's saying something!

The only Zack Snyder movie I can say I truly loved from start to finish. The fast style of directing along with a screenplay full of interesting characters makes it a must see for not just horror fans, but lovers of all cinema. The characters are ones with not only defined identities, but who make choices with consequences they must live with. In so many ways this film eclipses the original, which I always found far too slow and drawn out.

Why more of Zack Snyder's movies haven't turned out like this I don't know. Hopefully he can reclaim his lost magic again and continue to put out movies that are not serviceable, at best, but truly wonderful again.

Not a bad remake really, throw the first DOTD out the window and forget about it and just enjoy this modern day horror flick.

The first ten minutes including a disturbingly brilliant title sequence (with Johnny Cash's "The man comes around") are excellent and frikkin scary. After that it gets a little too predictable within the genre tropes and some scenes (the birth especially) are unnecessarily sadistic and disgusting. Entertaining enough until the insultingly stupid found footage end credits reveal.

The zombies were more interesting than our main "characters," who were really just zombie food. As usual, Snyder substitutes direction and story with spectacle.
