Format: HD DVD
George A Romero returns to his cult "Of the Dead" franchise, and he is in fine form. As far a zombie movies go, it's a little light in the primal horror aspect than his others. "Land of the Dead" tries to make a political statement. Where his others focused more on society and the degenerative human nature.

The zombies have never looked Dead-er, or more freaky than now. Not to mention they're getting smart, and starting to work together. It is a post-apocalyptic world, and clearly the Zombies are in charge.

The HD picture quality is very, very nice. A clear improvement over DVD. However the movie loses some of it's WOW factor by being almost completely shot at night, or in darkened locales. The pitch dark scenes cause the movie to lose out in the normal depth range of other HD titles on the market. Not bad, but not a stand-out.

The sound is mediocre at best. Presented in basic 5.1 surround, this movie is a disappointment. Flat, and uninspired. Even the DVD had DTS surround. A shame they couldn't replicate this audio to go with the HD image.

The features are plentiful and informative, however, the disc must be flipped to the standard DVD side to be viewed. This was a hassle, and not worthy of release on the HD DVD format, which boasts the greatest level of interactivity.

This is a fabulous movie, and I thoroughly enjoyed it, but the lackluster quality of this HD transfer keeps me from scoring it above a 3 out of 5.

One day, they rose.
The next, the world fell.
Now, humanity barely survives.
And the undead have gotten smarter.

Zombies abound in this recent blockbuster by George A. Romero and, as always, the man who invented the zombie genre shows us he still has what it takes to turn out a good flick.

Simon Baker does a great job playing the hard-edged yet soft-hearted hero, while John Leguizamo steals the show as a kind of crooked hero-turned-bad guy.

What I enjoyed about this flick was the idea of a walled-in society, a city-turned-world of its own, with its own hierarchy, running down from rich to poor. I suppose that even if the dead walked the earth, we'd still have the same problems we have today with the rich getting richer and the poor poorer.

Blood and guts fill the screen of this feature: graphic, wet and sloppy. There's no shortage of stomach-turning moments here.

I liked the idea of some of the zombies getting smarter instead of just roaming around looking for folks to eat, and the idea of them trying to regain their former humanity was well done. However, the "human-hearted" zombies also made the creatures feel a bit too human, for my taste and the undead lost their edge as a result.

The story was simple, but fun.

Not a bad effort, this one.

What can I say, I love all of George Romero's "Dead" films and have been watching them since the early eighties. When this one came out it was the first in the series that I actually saw in the movie theater. Dennis Hopper is great and the rest of the cast fit their roles just right in classic "Romero" style. Nothing of course beats the original "Dawn Of The Dead" for me but this one is a great addition to the series. ( The only one I don't watch too often is "Diary Of The Dead" ).

There are a lot of dead movies these days, but George Romero 's
dead movies will always be classics that can be re-watched over and
over again. In this latest film, the feeding continues. The script
is not too bad, but the best here are the zombies make-up and effects....There a lot of bitting going around.
Also the zombies are getting a little smarter and that affects
the movie also. Anyway great gore/ great fun/ and the bottom line
is that Land Of The Dead is not boring... Sure is fun to see Mr.
Bad Boy himself..Denis Hopper playing another bad guy.
Now sit down, relax...have a bite...and enjoy a great zombie flick!!
