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.

Format: Blu-ray
George A. Romero's "Land of the Dead" unrated directors cut has taken the zombie genre to new heights. These are not your old fashions zombies that you've been accustomed to over the years. In Land of the Dead the zombies have begun to organize themselves and they've learned how to utilize ordinary tools into weapons. The world is in chaos but somehow a city has been able to fortify itself against the hordes of walking dead roaming outside its wired fences and concrete walls. The city is controlled by a group of callous individuals who live high on the hog atop the city in a skyscraper. A new society has been built but do they have what it takes to defend it against the gathering forces of the undead? The survival of the city and its citizens is at stake and a group of heavily armed mercenaries is called in to protect the city at all costs. Will the highly trained mercenaries be able to stop what's coming? You'll have to buy your own copy to find out!

Video 4/5
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.

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" ).
