  • This film plays out like one of those trigger-happy video games -- it's all cranial splatter. Word to the squeamish: Dawn of the Dead merits a very hard R rating. The depictions of violence are exceedingly graphic. show more

  • When there's a whole mess of zombie killing to be done, who cares about reflective writing or that time-wasting element of suspense? show more

  • My only complaint is that its plot flatlines compared to the 1979 version, which was trickier, wittier and smarter. Romero was not above finding parallels between zombies and mall shoppers. show more
