Dawn of the Dead (2004) Review:

To me, Zack Snyder’s remake of Romero’s 1978’s classic Dawn of the Dead is two things:

1 – is it the best remake ever made if you like zombie’s movies,

2 – this is arguably one of the best, if not the best, modern zombie movie, alongside 28 Days Later.


As for the original Dawn of the Dead, the survivors find in a shopping mall, exploiting the dream that we all have inside to be locked overnight inside a deserted shopping mall. As in the original, this remake fully uses the potential of the mall situation to insert plenty much fun/innovative scenes inside its otherwise classic zombie/survival scenario.

The thing with this movie is that it really keeps you entertained all the time. I really liked the alternation between ultra-gory action scenes and funny and calm moments where the characters take time to enjoy the mall – great pacing! In addition, the fact that the zombie is now running (as compared to walking in the original) adds so much tension to it. Alongside the great action scenes and splendid modern special effects, this makes the movie a perfect 10 for me.
