The movie is listless and uninspired.
June 28, 2005
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.
June 27, 2005
Zombies just aren't that interesting as villains because they zombie ahead.
June 24, 2005
The plot held no surprises and the acting no revelations.
June 24, 2005
It's fairly solid fun without breaking any new ground.
June 24, 2005
Land of the Dead not only leaves you wishing Romero and his zombies might come back to feast once more, but that they'd take their time.
June 24, 2005
Land does feel less substantial than its predecessors at a scant 92 minutes ... But its novelty and nerve are the work of the master showing those feeding on his body of work how this zombie thing is done.
June 24, 2005
Land of the Dead is worth the wait, and dispels any fanboy concerns that the director was gone because he lost his mojo.
June 24, 2005
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.
June 24, 2005
In George A. Romero's Land of the Dead, it's depressingly evident that the horror pioneer has been surpassed by his imitators.
June 24, 2005
Land of the Dead is a perfectly adequate horror romp, but it's hard to imagine anyone remembering it five years from now.
June 24, 2005
Land's gruesomely creative zombie atrocities stretch an R rating's limits like a bloody tendon about to snap.
June 24, 2005
Land of the Dead is a horror flick, but not a screamy one -- the booming soundtrack pumps up the drama, and the gore induces squirms, but zombies more titillate than anything.
June 24, 2005
Land of the Dead is living proof that films still can be inventive, that Hollywood is not the absolute center of the filmmaking universe and that a zombie film still can be scary and smart.
June 24, 2005
With all due respect to 28 Days Later and Shaun of the Dead, nobody goes zombie quite like George A. Romero.
June 24, 2005
This new movie looks and feels like someone else's better-made schlock.
June 24, 2005
Romero obliges those who are less concerned with meaning than with hard-core gore.
June 24, 2005
Romero has given us, as well as the zombies, a lot to chew on. There is as much allegory to his tale as there is blood, and let me tell you, there's no shortage of blood.
June 24, 2005
Land of the Dead is rich with political metaphors and social satire, none of which ever throws us out of the story or slows the breakneck pace.
June 24, 2005
Land is pure entertainment and superbly well done.
