By Deimos
one of the best remakes ever made along with the Texas Chainsaw Massacre, hey this one had chainsaws in it too. great story, awesome effects, scary as hell and good acting, plus tons of gore (excellent effects) and the make up was perfect, plsu watch for cameos from the origional Dawn Of the Dead cast!! a must have!

4.0 out of 5 stars "When There's No More Room in Hell..." Oct. 23 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Having liked the original Dawn of the Dead, and having a rather negative perspective on most remakes, I have to say that Dawn of the Dead (2004 Unrated Director's Cut) is on the small list of exceptions, right under Inglourious Basterds and Django Unchained. Basically we have a group of people that have managed to temporarily escape the zombie apocalypse within a shopping mall, where they live temporarily until the odds become too overwhelming and circumstances call for action.
Having bought this used, its condition was like new and it arrived in good time. I was very intrigued by the special features (which include an interesting short recording the final days of the gun shop owner, some special effects featurettes, and a bit more.
Personally, I actually found this one more enjoyable than the original (I am rather mutual on the fact that these zombies run instead of lumber around mindlessly). It even answers the question of "What happens when a pregnant woman gets turned into a zombie?"
Overall, **** out of *****
"...The dead will walk the earth."

4.0 out of 5 stars Unrated directors cut Oct. 5 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
In my view,a damn good zombie movie!

At the very begining you get a sense on how it might feel after waking up and finding your neighbourhood in complete chaos.A bunch of different charactors band together to try and survive.There are some lite moments,but this film leans heavily on the survival side.There is a fair share of drama but it goes well with the movie and the internal conflict between some of the charactors,but dont worry there is plenty of zombies!The ending is harsh and fatal!

5.0 out of 5 stars The reason why the zombies can still run......... June 26 2004
........is because they've only been dead for a day and their bodies haven't stiffened up completely yet. In the original Dawn of the Dead, zombies had already taken over by the beginning of the movie. The remake, however, shows us the apocalypse from the very beginning. But regardless, zombies that run are far more terrifying and I'm glad the change was made for this movie.
I remember when I first heard of the production of this movie, I, like so many others, had already condemned this to be one of the worst movies of the year. After all, why do a zombie remake? All zombie movies are essentially the same; zombies take over, a group of survivors barricade themselves in some sort of shelter, most end up dying, a few survive. Logic persists that a filmmaker should just do another movie rather than dishonor a classic. Stephen King wrote an interesting article in Entertainment Weekly regarding the Dawn of the Dead remake. He wrote that the original was so shocking because it pushed the limits of what can be shown on film. There was a classic scene, in particular, were a terrified woman runs into the arms of her husband near the beginning of the film. Expecting to be safe from the army of zombies, she then looks up towards his face only to find his expression cold and lifeless. He then takes a huge chunk out of her shoulder. At the time, that was going too far, Stephen King writes. Nowadays, that's no big deal. How could the remake push the envelope like the original did? Most of time, studios won't even try. They'd rather do a lackluster job and cash in on the name. I'm happy to say that the Dawn of the Dead remake has all the elements that made the original so magnificient, as well as pushes the envelope far beyond what any of us expected.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Re-imaging of a Classic! Oct. 25 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I was skeptical that this movie would be any good. Remakes rarely are. This one was one of the rare winners. This was so well done and has so many extras and wonderful tidbits for fans. The director's commentary contains insightful comments that are some times out right hilarious! Just one complaint. The extra "found footage" of the "Terrifying Last Days of Andy" are not on the Blu Ray!:-( They are on the traditional DVD only. I think that it ought to be on the Blu Ray and it's silly not to include it there.

By Jenny J.J.I. TOP 500 REVIEWER
I had seen this movie a couple of times and it's just great. The plot is pretty straightforward, even though it relies mostly on cliché themes to move the story along. So as a rule, most films such as this tend to be predictable and quite tepid. Luckily, `Dawn of the Dead' has strong personalities to fall back on, making it thankfully every bit a character-driven drama as it is a horror-action piece.

Sarah Polley convincingly plays a waif turned survivor with just the right amount of emoting. She is strong and vulnerable at the same moment, trying to remain reasonable in unreasonable times. Weber also fits this bill as Michael, a man with a shady past full of regret who tries to fill others with hope while remaining a stark realistic. Rhames' performance clearly commands the most attention. As Kenneth, he becomes the group's de facto leader and top man of action. He keeps the clearest head when trouble is afoot and leads the group out of one scrape after another. Rhames gives the character a silent strength that provides the film with a much needed human edge. I just wished the zombies were bit slower because at times it seem a little bit unnatural of the things that they were able to do.

First time director Zack Snyder moves the film along briskly and effectively though, keeping the action scenes tight and the dramatic scenes quiet. There is no heavy-handed sermonizing here that tends to infiltrate most big-budget horror movies -- Snyder wisely lets the images speak for themselves. The horror itself is shocking and grabs your attention, which is a plus considering most of the recent crop of thrillers. The fact that it is happening to sympathetic characters that we care about is another feather in the movie's cap.

4.0 out of 5 stars One of those rare worthwhile remakes
The original (1978) was not bad, in fact it's a classic, but it has begun to smell a little ripe. It simply isn't as fresh as it once was and Zack Snyder's version modernized one... Read more

I love this re-make of Dawn of the Dead. It is a pure horror popcorn movie (does not have the symbolic elements of the original) and I'm totally ok with it. Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars A good remake of the Romero classic!
Romero's version had more of a "social-commentary" feel to it: if memory serves, zombies were roaming the mall in that movie...behaving not unlike their living selves. Read more

Thank God Romero never directed this movie because he would have surely ruined it with his nonsensical 'zombie rules' and his hidden social analysis. Read more
