    What in the hell is wrong with the world that this movie was even able to muster 74% critic approval. Did they watch it?

    The acting and dialog by two stars in particular was so painfully campy and unapologetically cheesy. However, if you leave your expectations, standards amd self respect at the door, then this zombie installment is a kick-ass ride. U-S-A! U-S-A!

    How could anyone NOT dead like this movie? With the occult layers you'd think there'd be a reasonable production value. I'm more disgusted by people who liked it than the film. So bad, there 's no where to begin dissecting it.

    Zombie movies aren't usually going to be cinematic masterpieces, this is a perfect example of that. Horrible acting, dialogue, blah blah blah.. lots of good ol' fashioned gory kills if you're really into that stuff, that's about all this has.

    I did not like this film despite being a lover of zombie movies. Land of the Dead comes across as generic. Despite being steeped in darkness, it lacks the taut pacing and nerve-jangling suspense of 28 Days Later, and doesn't have the tongue-in-cheek approach evident in Shaun of the Dead. It's got great makeup, though. Credit Gregory Nicotero (who replaces Dawn of the Dead and Day of the Dead's Tom Savini) for making the zombies more frightening than campy. Ultimately, however, copious gore and rotting flesh can only do so much for a movie, and the lack of ambition in Romero's storyline is where Land of the Dead fails. The movie will appeal to those with a penchant for zombie flicks, but is unlikely to reach further - not even to the broader "general horror" market. It's not startling or frightening enough.

    A pretty good entry in the Dead franchise. The action scenes were very good but the plot wasn't interesting and the dialogue was even worse. I like that Romero's zombies are unique in that they can think and then act upon those thoughts (shoot people, slash people, etc). This entry is the worst so far in the franchise but its still serviceable and genre fans should appreciate it.

    Quarto film sugli zombie di Romero che mi ha deluso abbondantemente. Quando guardo una pellicola sui morti viventi girata da George A. Romero mi aspetto qualcosa di grande, invece il film è abbastanza brutto. La storia e quasi tutti i personaggi sono brutti. Gli unici che si salvano sono Riley, il suo amico Charlie e lo zombie Big Daddy, in particolare quest'ultimo. Gli zombie ormai sono diventati più intelligenti e riescono a comunicare tra di loro e Big Daddy guida il suo "popolo", la sua specie, contro gli umani per vendicarsi di tutto quello che hanno fatto finora. E' il personaggio del film spinto dagli ideali più nobili. Insomma i non-morti sono una delle poche cose buone della pellicola. Asia Argento veramente pessima. A un certo punto il samoano tira uno schiaffo alla donna della squadra di ronforzo, così dal nulla, ancora non ho capito perchè. Il film non regge nemmeno minimamente il confronto con i tre precedenti. Peccato.

    Apart from Dennis Hopper, no other character had any screen presence to speak of. Do not waste your time with this dull and generic zombie flick.
