Nurse Sarah Polley, security guard Ving Rhames and others fight the plague of killer zombies infesting their town; this slick, fast paced horror serves up a heady mix of action, gore and suspense. And though this remake seems to unintentionally invert the original"s satire on mindless consumerism (in director Zach Synder"s world; the mall is an irony-free refuge / stronghold) 'Dawn Of Dead' packs just enough gore, humour and action to eclipse Romero"s original. I"m not a big fan of zombie films in general (as they"re always funnier than they should be), and out of the recent genre revival, only '28 Days Later' stood out for me, until now, 'Dawn Of The Dead' is the new standard bearer for all zombie flicks to come, almost as much fun as playing 'House Of The Dead' at the arcades. See it.
I am generally very anti remake, but this is unexpectedly stunning. Same old, same old... but the "old" here is a classic being honoured, tweaked, and notched up into top gear, so the zombies run and run and run, while the cast act their hearts out... or have them eaten out, depending. It's top drawer nightmare material, standing shoulder to rotted shoulder with the source material. Good stuff and hard stuff (make sure you get the Director's Cut.) The extras meanwhile contain a couple of amusing pieces intended to er... flesh out the fiction, one of which features Richard Biggs as an anchorman going to pieces amidst armageddon (methinks it was the tragic 'Babylon 5' star's final performance.)

A nurse, a policeman, a young married couple, a salesman, and other survivors of a worldwide plague that is producing aggressive, flesh-eating zombies, take refuge in a mega Midwestern shopping mall.
Director's cut of Zack Snyder's modern re-telling of George A. Romero's 1979 horror classic. Sarah Polley and Ving Rhames star as Ana and Kenneth, two of the last remaining people on earth after the human race has been decimated by flesh-eating zombies. The two find temporary shelter with a few other survivors in an abandoned shopping mall, but their situation becomes increasingly precarious as they run out of food and power and the dead start to break through their defences. They realise their only hope of survival is to escape to an island that remains zombie-free - but how can they possibly find a way to reach it?
