    Eisner has almost nothing on his mind, no political rumblings, nothing behind the urge to upgrade vintage trash. show more

    Familiar B-movie fare, but it's also lively fun and presented with well-paced flair. show more

    Wall Street Journal

    The big difference between Mr. Romero's film and Mr. Eisner's--which is so intelligent you fear the fanboys will scatter--is that Mr. Eisner never gives us the military's point of view. All we know is what David and Judy and Russell know, which for a long time isn't much. And The Crazies is all the scarier for it. show more

    Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer

    Olyphant has a cool, amiable vibe, kind of postmodern Jimmy Stewart, while Mitchell brings intelligence and quietude to yet another role that doesn't deserve such consideration. show more

    Has warmed-over chills and a muddled, zombie-like execution. show more

    Michael Rechtshaffen The Hollywood Reporter

    Part zombie movie, part apocalyptic bioterror, part military conspiracy thriller, the refit hybrid doesn't stint on the visceral kicks demanded by contemporary audiences while remaining reasonably true to those Romero roots. show more

    The incoherence is made all the more disappointing because Eisner displays a great deal of raw talent for the genre's tone and set pieces. show more

    Michael Phillips Chicago Tribune

    I greatly prefer this cleverly sustained and efficiently relentless remake to the '73 edition. It is lean and simple. show more

    You may not remember The Crazies in a month, but you'll have a grand time watching it. show more

    Ty Burr Boston Globe

    Does what an exploitation movie should: It gets in, it scares you silly, and it gets out, all while playing fair by the audience. show more
