    While not fated to go down in history as a genre-defining fan favourite like the original DotD, this remake is far more solid than many remember.

    Snyder's direction is less obtrusive than it is nowadays - crafting some neat visual moments at regular intervals, while Gunn's script is real treat - offering up hearty (or should that be brainy?) portions of homage, emotional depth and rich, varied characters throughout. Strong performances and a brilliant closing credits are a bonus.

    Habe das Original nicht gesehen, aber bei einem Horror-Remake habe ich mir erstmal keine großen Hoffnungen gemacht. Aber völlig zu Unrecht! Der Film kam echt aus dem Nichts und hat mich doch erstaunt, weil er mich richtiggehend packen konnte. Die Interaktionen der Charaktere verliehen dem ganzen Gewicht, er war bis zum Schluss spannend und die ganze Kaufhaus-Situation hat ohnehin richtig gezündet! Einer der besten Zombie-Filme, den ich gesehen habe! Nur die Szene nach dem Abspann hätte es meiner Meinung nach absolut nicht gebraucht.

    zack snyder really had some nads to remake this and truthfully i think the remake is really great. snyder adds a more darker tone than the original and matthew leonettis lighting and atmosphere that he creates adds to the dark scary tone. in all zach snyder creates a true horror staple in time

    Well, this is probably Snyder's best movie and if it didn't have that title, I'd probably think of it as an OK horror flick. But since it's allegedly a remake of Romero's movie, I have to judge it against that low-budget masterpiece and it just doesn't come close. Snyder seems to have thought that the earlier Dawn was a movie just about zombies and manages to strip all of the social and racial subtext out of it and gives us pretty thuddingly literal zombie movie.

    A great classic remake, make-ups, goriness, and plots all gets to its right place.

    I got excited and nervous during the first few minutes of this movie. Excited because it was suspenseful and engaging, nervous because my loyalty to my favorite film of all time could be strained! This movie could be, if not just as good... Better!? But then, all of my apprehension and excitement was laid to rest once the film made it to the mall. And then it all fell apart. When its second act begins, the movie loses focus with…

    I first watched Zack Snyder's Dawn of the Dead remake a little while back and I didn't much care for it. It really just didn't do much for me. One of my friends told me that I was being too hard on it because it was a remake and that I should give it another shot. I was thinking about doing that and then I saw 300 (2006) and pretty much decided I had no interest in revisiting any of…

    Re-watching every film I own, film #12:-

    Getting back on track. I own the original so that will also come up somewhere in this pretty lengthy list. For the record, the original is one of the films that got me into horror/zombie films, my parents have good taste.

    With that stated, I really enjoyed this remake of sorts. I say that because it doesn't just try and copy it, it also adds its own spin and doesn't try to be…

    I HATE this movie. I know it's such an adolescent thing to get all territorial about some consumer entertainment you're sentimental about, but I can't help it, Zack Snyder's movies all look like some crappy car commercial or music video, and of all the horror films to remake, he had to choose the one that probably falls the furthest out of his aesthetic range--a mangy, humid, saturated thing that couldn't be any further from this glossy slasher (yeah, it's a…
