Dawn of the Dead Movie Review

Hop to

As horrible as the idea of remaking
George Romero's seminal 1978
zombie shocker might have been to some,
the simple fact is that when taken on its
own terms Zack Snyder's Dawn of the
Dead is an effective and action-packed
horror flick that should go down very well
with genre fans.
The plot is much the same as it ever
was, with a group of survivors holing up in
a shopping mall as a zombie apocalypse
plays out in the world around them.
Thankfully, the group of survivors is larger
this time out, guaranteeing plenty of
victims for the undead to chow down on;
an aspect which takes central
prominence in the remake, with any
notion of social commentary stripped
away to make room for more gore and
exploding heads. The result may be miles
away from being a classic like the original,
but as far as gut-munching zombies films
go, it's damn entertaining.
