Format: DVD
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.

Format: DVD
This remake of George Romero's 1979 cult classic follows a group of people who barricade themselves in a small-town shopping mall after millions of flesh-eating zombies take over the world in little more than a day. The exact cause of this armageddon is never explained, leaving both the characters and the audience bewildered and unsettled.

Writer James Gunn doesn't waste any time in getting to the action, and his suspenseful script is peppered with snappy dialogue. Yet, the isolated survivors seem a little too accepting of the tragedy that has arisen around them, as they try and kill time before coming up with an escape plan. It is also puzzling that aside from one little girl in the opening sequence, children are nowhere to be seen. Though Gunn has found his creative niche, he should stick to straightforward horror and avoid comedic films like his deplorable Scooby-Doo.

Zack Snyder makes his directorial debut, filling the screen with just the right amount of mayhem and gore. Every scene is sophisticated and stylish, and the well-chosen soundtrack adds an element of irony to the proceedings. With no superstars to carry his film, the ensemble of largely unfamiliar faces adds to the story's credibility.

The prolific Sarah Polley, best known for her work in t.v.'s "Road to Avonlea", gives a solid performance, conveying both horror and sadness at the chaos around her. Fans of Ving Rhames will be disappointed, as his underdeveloped character exists only to blow the heads off ravenous corpses. Jake Weber as Michael stands out among the group, shaping his role with a compelling poignancy. Shot at Thornhill Square Mall north of Toronto, it comes as no surprise that several Canadians appear in supporting roles.

Well, i will admit that this movie is awesome but i still prefer the original to this one because of what the original did to me when i was a kid...SCARED ME TO DEATH!!
Being 28 now, and seeing how the film industry has evolved along with everything else with their special effects, editing and bigger budgets, any remake or movie will look better than what was released 20 years ago.
Of course i said look better but not made better!
Getting back to the movie, i enjoyed it, the acting was decent and the zombies looked good, in some cases too good! As for the story, it changed alot besides for the location (a shopping mall) where all the action took place in.
For everyone that didn't see the 2004 version but saw the original, here are some changes...
1-Original starts off in a newsroom telling the public about the living coming back from the dead...the remake starts off in a hospital where they're treating a patient with a bite, then all hell breaks loose in the first ten minutes. (the best opening for a horror film that i've seen in a long time!)
2-No army type guys fighting off zombies in the remake, just regular people like you and me doing all the dirty work!
3-Lots of blood in this one, wins hands down in that department compared to the original!
4-They must have put steroids in the ground, these 2004 zombies are faster then ever (28 days later fast!), the original movie features the slowest zombies ever put on screen!
5-Was that Tom savini in the remake playing a news reporter on TV? Yes, very small part compared to the original where he played a crazy rough and tough biker.
