The Dead Lands offers an odd mix of cultural identity that falls prey to clichéd tropes and one-dimensional characters.

For those who've waited 20 years for another expert combination of social satire and zombie action, Land is a serious disappointment.

The metaphor, that a society that doesn't recognize the evil it is doing might be getting its comeuppance, would have been a cool subtext in a better movie. But this 'Dead' doesn't jolt, shock, scare or amuse. It just staggers along -- very, very slowly.

There's a sense that Romero has run out of ideas and is recycling.

Zombies just aren't that interesting as villains because they zombie ahead.

a weak, if fun, appendix to Romero's excellent trilogy.

About as lively as a piece of roadkill.

The plot held no surprises and the acting no revelations.

Land of the Dead is just a giant excuse to see the walking dead pigging out on human flesh--in all its blood-dripping, bone-crunching, brain-slurping fashion. Yuck.

Romero is more interested in Technicolor gore effects and in young people shooting big guns than in telling a frightening story.

There's little to distinguish this movie from the countless imitators (Romero's) work has spawned.

How disappointing that Land of the Dead is a familiar rehashing of what Romero already covered in Day of the Dead.

I pity Romero. Instead of a fresh Dead film, we're given a bizarre mixture of Day of the Dead and Escape from New York - and not in a good way.

This new movie looks and feels like someone else's better-made schlock.

Romero's fourth-grade dialogue doesn't help matters, but anyone seeking out the latest achievements in cranial ruptures, spewing-blood gouts, and ground-beef spillage need look no further.

Romero may have enhanced the scale of his production, but not his iconic status in the zombie-making hierarchy.

After a while, I was hoping for something besides more of the same old gore. The zombie genre isn't dead yet, but it's starting to look a little stiff.

Hardly the magnum opus for which Romero fans have been waiting.

does not deserve to share the same glory that its vastly superior predecessors justly deserve
