George A. Romero's zombie movies have always been about people, not zombies. That's what makes them work so well and Land of the Dead is no exception.

Maybe this is a "time waster", but I enjoyed it. George Romero updated his movie series. Feels like it inspired the current zombie wave of the last decade , especially with The Walking Dead tv series.

Everytime I watch this film it's like I'm watching it for the first time. I can't seem to hold it to my memory. This was the last Drive-in movie I saw along with " War of the World's June of 2005. That Asia is so cute in this one.

Romero's zombies are restless yet again in this sequel of a sequel which delivers pretty much what we've come to expect; conflicted humans, hungry ghouls, and a whole lot of dripping entrails. This time around however the living dead are the decided winners, gaining not only the entire Earth ("let's go to Canada!" says one of mankind's last survivors) but a faint glimmer of intelligence behind those rotting eyes. Could this be the beginning of a Zombie Confederation? Sociopolitical allegory aside (yes, some insist Romero's series is a wry commentary on the Reagan years) this latter addition to the genre shows just how tired the subject has become...when shuffling, drooling, man-eating corpses begin to elicit feelings of sympathy and a sense of "preciousness" it's time to put that final bullet to the brain. Good effects though.

The worst of the Romero zombie flicks. Has a cool post apocalyptic vision, but fails in execution. Everything is just too silly. Feels like a bad John Carpenter movie. The effects aren't even up to snuff. They had a very good cast and decent budget and just whiffed in my opinion. Could possibly excel as a remake.
