      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      George A. Romero's latest entry in his much-vaunted Dead series is not as fresh as his genre-inventing original, Night of the Living Dead. But Land of the Dead does deliver on the gore and zombies-feasting-on-flesh action.

      Roshan S I've seen many zombie movies, this one is the most chilling because of the varying zombie concept, social class, beautiful set designs and scenes. Will be rewatching again this Halloween ;) Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/03/24 Full Review Fleegle B A really enjoyable movie Rated 5 out of 5 stars 12/31/23 Full Review Istiak M No idea why people don't rate this movie highly but I really enjoyed it. George Romero is the pioneer of zombie movies and his movies make me feel like I'm in a zombie world.Worth watching. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 12/02/23 Full Review Alec B Its strange to see a Romero picture with a decent budget, actual stars, and major studio backing. The film mostly works as Romero gives the usually mindless hordes of zombies something interesting to do this time, I just wish the political/social commentary was a little less on the nose. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 11/18/23 Full Review Vito P Regardless of whether one agrees or disagrees with Romero's worldview, his ideas are very clear and above all they are developed in a very consistent, powerful and substantial cinema. The formula is always the same, but the story that is told has its uniqueness and does not seem predictable. It manages to hold the viewer's attention for the entire duration of the film, to restore the feeling of satisfaction typical of "The Day of the Dead" and perhaps this time, compared to that one, to inspire even more hope for a new and more human rebirth. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 11/11/23 Full Review Bob A Love how George did this one. Entertaining and fun Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 08/03/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Nell Minow Movie Mom Rated: B- Feb 18, 2012 Full Review Empire Magazine Rated: 4/5 Jan 7, 2006 Full Review Marc Savlov Austin Chronicle Rated: 3.5/5 Jul 5, 2005 Full Review Brian Eggert Deep Focus Review Neither Romero's gory spectacle nor his larger-than-average budget distracts too much from Land of the Dead's thematic power, which still feels relevant Rated: 3.5/4 Feb 12, 2022 Full Review Matt Brunson Film Frenzy It's good, gory fun, even if its satiric jabs at societal mores are more heavy-handed than in the past. Rated: 3/4 Sep 19, 2021 Full Review A.S. Hamrah The Baffler ...it is clear that no American genre film from that period digests and exposes the Bush era more skillfully than Land of the Dead.
