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.
Land of the Dead comes to Blu-ray with a rather impressive 1080p, 2.35:1 framed transfer. Colors are excellent throughout the film, even in the darker sequences. Black levels are solid and consistent throughout the film as well. Image detail is about as solid and consistent as can be throughout the film. The video image presented on this Blu-ray is outstanding to say the least. Most of the scenes, simply jump out at the viewer. I couldn't find anything wrong with the video transfer at all. As for the level of gore. Fans will be treated to plenty of gore in classic Gormero fashion, you'll have to pardon the little play on words. In my opinion, every vibrant drop of blood, severed limb and torn out piece of human flesh are clearly on display throughout the movie.

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.

This is my absolute favourite zombie movie. The zombies start to learn & live like they were still human. Read morePublished on March 22 2013 by J. Martineau
Yes, it's a little gory at times - but seeing Simon Baker in it is well worth it! Not to mention that George A Romero directed and wrote it!Published on March 20 2013 by whalefan444
Most people say Dawn, some say Day, few say Diary, I say Land. Why? Budget. Romero had a bigger budget to work with this time and The Dead Father doesnt cheap out on this one. Read morePublished on Oct. 12 2012 by Silent Sam
While the carnage was inspired, the actual movie on a whole was pale in comparison to Night and Dawn, and Day even had more of an atmosphere. Read morePublished on Nov. 10 2005
