George A. Romero
Such a random film, over 20 years since George A. Romero
created anything zombie related. Then for the film maker
to just come out with a new zombie movie made me very
excited. With high hopes, I walked into this film opening
day was glad to pay the after 6pm full ticket price. Not
to mention add a new review to flashzombies.com!
I give this movie about a 7.5, they say he's the man
who created it all (all being the zombie phenomenon) which
couldn't be more wrong, sure he made Night of the Living
Dead, but what most people don't either know or care,
is that the first zombie movie was White Zombie back in
1932, WAY before he made Night of the Living Dead.
With all that said, casting could of been better. Last
time I saw John Leguizamo and Dennis Hopper in a movie
together the story was about saving a princess. Princess
Daisy in fact, were John played Luigi and Dennis Hopper
was King Koopa. (Super Mario Bro's) These two movies and
the acting were quite similar, even though in Land of
the Dead, John Leguizamo's character is more of the squirmy,
high and mighty type.
Alright my ravings are over, now to the review. :)
The story starts out sweet, you see flashes of what has
already happened, the movie takes place after the zombies
have feasted on the flesh of the living. With very few
survivors left. Except the RICH and POWERFUL in the city
heavily guarded, and owned by who? Dennis Hopper of coarse
Mainly the story is also about a heavy duty armored truck
the size of a train, that can take out zombies left and
right. Then stolen by John, and needed to be returned
to the man. (Dennis Hopper) Which enters the main character
Simon Baker. With his love interest Asia Argento, which
is not asian. (FYI)
No more for you, to find out more check out the movie.
I say go see it. Its not likely you will get to see another
new George Romero zombie flick anytime soon. I eventually
got past the whole Super Mario Brothers thing and enjoyed
the film, and you should too.
PS. Did I mention the zombies are smarter in this movie??
Now you have to see it!
