Dawn of the Dead Reviews
He expertly manages to capture a story in the notoriously bad for story horror genre. The opening scenes of this film are some of the best in any film and puts the viewer right into the action without pulling or pushing them into it. Snyder excels at creating a believable zombie outbreak film way ahead of the current "serious" adaptation shows and movies that follow.
In many ways, it is heartbreaking to watch this film today. It is the exact thing you want from a Snyder film, fast paced action that organically builds into and from a well constructed plot with smooth character development that lends the viewer ease when suspending their disbelief. Sadly, he never delivers it again.
