The feature-film debut of director Zack Snyder, Dawn of the Dead is a modern retelling of George Romero's 1978 horror classic, which was actually the second film in a trilogy that began with Night of the Living Dead and concluded with Day of the Dead. Sarah Polley and Ving Rhames star as two of the last remaining people on an earth that has been ravaged by flesh-eating zombies. After escaping to a shopping mall with a handful of other survivors, they decide that they only way to truly elude the approaching throng of undead is to somehow make their way to an island that is supposedly zombie-free. Jake Weber and Mekhi Phifer also star. ~ Matthew Tobey, All Movie Guide

George Romeros zombies would be turning over in their graves - if they stayed in them. Many changes were made from the original that killed the story even more [the fact that you had to be bitten to become a zombie] and the socialistic values of the original as well. The only good thing I saw in this movie was the fact that the zommbies were fast moving (and in reality, if there really were zombies, this would only be for a while because reanimated dead tissue would eventually move slower and slower in time - the rot factor). The characters were none to care about - none were developed, even though a couple of them you did want to be seen torn apart. They died and you didn't care or feel it. There were a lot of implausability and continuity errors. The biggest was how did the virus spread so quickly in a small town overnight? It was typical horror movie fodder, extra characters were introduced into the story for mere reason of nothing else but to kill them off.
