Thank you for taking the time to read this. Dawn of the Dead is the subject of our review. It’s a fantastic zombie horror picture with great killings, difficult choices for the characters, and excellent acting from the entire cast, especially Ving Rhames as the silent badass cop Kenny and Sarah Polley as the nurse Anna. The direction is sleek, and the action, with the exception of a few instances, is very nicely filmed. The screenplay is plenty of humor and twists and turns to keep the viewer engaged, as well as subverting certain expectations. It contains everything a decent zombie film should have, but it also explores how society might crumble if such an event occurs, and how humanity might turn on one another. One of the best zombie flicks ever created, and one of the most fun.
This is without a doubt one of the best zombie films ever made. Zack Snyder has created a masterpiece with his direction. This is nothing but wonderful for zombie, horror, and action picture enthusiasts, from the torked up thrilling opening including the awesome Sarah Polley’s escape, to the action in the iconic mall setting, and even the end credits featuring Disturb’s manic rock song. It’s a well-made, gruesome joy.
