    One of the few remakes I not only tolerate, but actually love. This stands on its own apart from the original. A stylized thrillride with relatable characters and great performances. The first 10 and a half minutes feature more spectacular (and motivated!) shots than most films have in their entire running time. From a visual standpoint, Snyder can direct the hell out of a film. Now if he'd only work more consistently with good writers and leave Superman alone...

    Best zombie film ever made. Zack really is a master of visual panache and his debut film perfectly exemplified that.

    As a massive fan of George A. Romero and his classic “Dead” trilogy (and in particular the original “Dawn of the Dead” from 1978) I was highly cynical and sceptical about an attempted remake (or “re-imagining” as its makers would have it) of such a highly regarded and seminal work. Refusing to see it on original release, I eventually caught up with it as a Director’s Cut on DVD some years after its original release and boy was I wrong…

    As the world wakes up to find a zombie epidemic has spread overnight, a group of survivors takes refuge in a shopping mall.

    Remaking Romero's cult classic, Dawn Of The Dead, could be seen as either very brave, or simply asking for trouble. Especially if you're going to change the zombies to make them fast moving. But I have to say Zack Snyder has done a remarkable job. The story begins with a shocking pre-credits sequence, which rapidly takes us…

    It may have taken an equal dose of sacrilege and hubris to think remaking George A. Romero's "Dawn of the Dead" was a good idea, but director, Zack Snyder, and writer, James Gunn, pulled it off. Their "Dawn of the Dead" may lack the narrative subtly and suggestion of Romero's film, but the 2004 version is ferocious, frightful, and fully involving in and of itself. One of that year's best horror films, the other being a certain, England-set zombie romp,…

    I hate to say it but this remake blows Romero's version away (sorry George). The zombies are much faster and the group of survivors are more diverse. This is one remake that gets it right.

    Zack Snyder’s 2004 remake of the classic George A. Romero zombie movie “Dawn of the Dead” was a milestone in many ways. It helped launch Snyder’s career and has since directed “300” and “Watchmen”. “Dawn” is a spectacular remake, some say better that the original. It introduced us to the fast, sprinting zombies. It did however also help set in motion the trend of remaking every old horror they could dig up no matter how bad it is.

    “Dawn” follows…

    Well now, this movie kicked about 1,800 different varieties of ass. Everything was just horror-movie-perfect. Nothing was too overdone. It wasn't about showing death in many new and fashionable ways. It was just plain cool. The soundtrack was perfectly awesome. I mean, a lounge-act cover of Disturbed's "The Sickness"? Inspired! If you go see this movie, stay for the credits. If you don't, you'll think the movie ended totally differently than it actually does. I wanna see it again!!
