I only watched this because I saw a one 1 scene one 1 time years ago on TV when it was randomly on! Right from the start, when they were trying to do something stupid with the Zombies, I knew I probably wasn't going to like it. Also, they call them Walkers at least once one time 1 one time once time in the movie, (I think maybe multiple more than one 1 time times), and it was weird to hear since it wasn't was not on The Walking Dead!

Another pretty good addition to the Living Dead anthology. Nothing new to add though, and I really wasn't rooting for anyone cuz I didn't care. Actually if anything I was cheering for the zombies. But still pretty entertaining and gory. It will be very forgettable.

Romero's fourth entry into his undead franchise has the balls and brilliance of its predecessors. The real issue is that it's clear he visions grand plans for the films and unfortunately had to settle on a cheaper production budget that usually works in his favour but Land of the Dead still feels a slight punch above its weight in the production department, yet the social and political commentary on corporate greed and class structure is rife.

Not as good as the remake of Dawn Of The Dead, And it was sometimes a little boring and silly, But it tried something new and it worked most of the time but it's classic Romero.

Romers's movies are getting worse and worse, but Land of the Dead is still a fun movie to watch with plenty of blood and gore.

Another Romero masterpiece.

An unnecessary fourth entry in the zombie trilogy even if it offers another interesting social commentary. With poorly-written dialogue and characters we never care about, this film will probably please those more interested in new ways of slaughter and blood spewing.

A perfectly mediocre zombie movie that is a tad too polished for my tastes.

"Shaun of the Dead" actor Simon Pegg and it's director Edgar Wright make a cameo as the two zombies chained up in the bar for the amusement of the living. George A Romero is a huge fan of their movie!

This is a very boring movie, I even fell asleep watching this terrible movie.

I wasn't even aware of all the other zombie movies of the same series there are, but watching this one I'd guess it's a pretty good entry. There's enough zombie action to please the fans, but there's also other things going on around to not be just the same thing as always. Also a good portray of how no matter what's going on in the world, rich douchbags will always try to screw others into having more.

It's got jumps! You either like this sort of thing and want to watch it, or you don't and don't ... or you don't and do ... or you do, but ... don't? Considering the director's reputation with most of the population of the developed world, I dunno who would actually be reading this. A film geek? Somebody who figures these reviews will reveal some particular insight, or, somebody who can't afford to get their hands on the movie? Well, at least I can say it's typical George A. Romero. It's Romero on a nice fat budget. From the "Uncut" DVD commentary: there are cameos from Shaun of the Dead, a lead by the daughter of Dario Argento, a bit part by Romero's daughter, the second unit director and stunt coordinator (same person) appearing "in every reel" (Romero's words) and other cheaply attained campy bits. 3/5.

There are some great ideas including the world that has been created and interesting (if minor) new developments in the dead but the plot and characters that lead us through the ideas are very, very dull. Romero also still never strays from the "the living are the real enemies" theme that he hammers in every time.

I thought I had reviewed this.

Worse than a cheesy B movie. More of a joke than a scary movie. Bad acting included.

The action and gore was everything you would want in a zombie movie! But the story and characters were just meh.

This movie starts off with the old Universal pictures opening. Then after the opening credits roll the movie starts off in some old town where some survivors try to find medicine. We're also introduced to this big van/truck/tank called Dead Reckoning that shoots down most of the zombies there. After that the survivors to this island city which is supposed to be their home.

There's also one place in the middle of it all in called Fiddler's Green where people forget about the zombies. While everyone else outside lives dirt poor like in the Edgar Allan Poe story Mask of the Red Death where the prince has a big party in the castle and forgets about the plague outside.

There's also this on guy Cholo, played by John Leguizamo, tries to get a place in Fiddlers Green by persuading the owner. Played by Dennis Hopper and this movie was when I was starting to noticing him. There's also a sense of deja vu since both actors were in the Super Mario Brothers Movie if you remember that at all.

When Cholo doesn't get his place he takes Dead Reckoning and threatens to destroy the city. The stars of Shawn of the Dead are in this bar scene also as zombies since George Romero was a fan of the movie. There's also a zombie, Big Daddy, then gets an army of zombies and slowly make they're way to the city. When they rise out of the water it like from the scene from Carnival of Souls. That was from what I've heard of it that is, but I'll have to see Carnival of Souls myself one day.

When the main hero get's to Dead Reckoning he reasons with Cholo and they go back to the city. Which is getting overrun by the zombies and the Ton Savini biker makes a cameo as a zombie. Some of the blood is CGI which is fine by me since he probably had a small budget.

This movie also has a dark setting, literally, which creates a lot of atmosphere. Not as good as Night, Dawn, or Day but maybe because there was so many zombie movies around at the time it came out. I might not review Diary of the Dead or Survival of the Dead since I saw a but of Survival of the Dead and thought it was kind of dumb. Also for Diary of the Dead's way of filming as a home video horror movie I don't quite like. That sub-genre is just a little too overused a bit but I like the idea of that anyone can be a filmmaker.
