Land of the Dead (2005)
Director: George A.Romero
Main Stars: John Leguizamo, Asia Argento, Simon Baker, Eugene Clark
Storyline: The dead are still taking over the world and the last of civilization are walled up in a city.
Review (Spoils): the living was built a massive wall around the city to protect themselves from the walking dead. When the living start to get power hungry and fighting for leadership and dictatorship over the walled the city the dead take this as a weakness and advance.
We were waiting forever for this to be created since the last film Day of the Dead of the series. We have the survivor all walled up, the rich sitting in area called Fiddler’s Green and everyone else on ground level battling on the streets. We have a massive city well walled in with electric fences and razor wire where some of the poor people rebel against the rich and this causes the collapse. During the weakness of the people the zombies are now following the leadership of an advanced zombie known as Big Daddy.
Ok can this film be any farther away from the last film? Advanced zombies? A world that looks like it should be a sci-fi Mad Max war zone area and reads more like an action film than a horror film. I was expecting so much more with this film then what was delivered to me. I love my zombies stupid, slow moving and hungry. Juts plan and simple not this war zone type shit that this film gave me.
Rating: Low rating on this as the series over all is one of the most classic and one of the best so you need to be very careful when doing a fourth film. You can’t just deliver a shooting, futuristic film with intelligent zombies and expect the fans to jump all over it. We waited way to long for this film to be finally done to feel that it was rushed and not overly thought out in the end.
