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.

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.Read more ›
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."
Dawn of the Dead (2004) Marks the Return of the Living Dead to the Horror genre. This Re-envisioning of George A. Romero's 1978 Cult Classic is much different than the original. The Concept of Flesh Eating Zombies and survivor's holed up in a shopping mall stays the same, But everything that made the original great is changed to update the film for todays action Driven Audiences.
Dawn 2004, is not the cheesy remake some would make it out to be, However, it moves with the pace of a High budget Action film that audiences are sure to like. The Often Morbid humor and deliberate offensiveness helps progress the film to heights not acheived in horror in quite sometime.
Do yourself a Favor, if you like your horror with a little gore, a little sarcasm, and lots of zombies. Dawn of the Dead 2004 is the film for you.
Remember the unrated cut has 9 minutes of never before seen footage.

Where do I begin? Well, to start, it's nothing--and I mean NOTHING--like the original Dawn of the Dead, so if you're looking for a true to original remake, then pass fast. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Rakayla
