Land of the Dead (2005) Review:

After producing a highly successful trilogy of the most notorious zombie films ever, Romero launched his 4th film in the Dead franchise: Land of the Dead, putting him in a pressure situation to pull off another classic. Even though it is respectable of Romero to make each film unique and sort of evolve through each stage of filmmaking, it seems he lost a bit of touch when creating Land of the Dead. The zombie’s make-up, walking motions and the traditional ghoulish completeness was missing or not executed to Romero’s standard. Furthermore, the special effects seemed to be too modern and had less attention to detail in death scenes. Thereee is the one really cool scene that sticks out when two zombies rip a hand apart but that’s about all that’s memorable.

Not that Land of the Dead was completely lousy though, his characters and storyline maintained my viewing interest. Dennis Hopper, Simon Baker, Asia Argento, and John Leguizamo were all excellent, as well as the supporting cast members like Robert Joy and Joanne Boland. The most important thing when watching this movie is to expect quality or traditional nature of Romero’s previous three films, he always seems to throw some curve balls. If that’s done as a viewer, perhaps some enjoyment can be found when checking out Land of the Dead.
