Ok, there's a Living Dead thread already but I since I haven't made a thread in a while I went and made a whole new one with more defined topic.
Land of the Dead just got a premiere (I wouldn't even say so, the small theater was only half full ) in Finland and left mixed feelings. My friends hated it but I kind of like it. The ending was anticlimatic for sure, it was rushed and a zombie movie and messsage of tolerance don't really blend together so well. The movie had the most sympathetic zombie ever on screen though - the scene with the drill made me feel so sorry for the poor guy. Overally I would give the movie seven out of ten. The beginning was alright, quite Madmax like. The middle was really good, if the director had spended a half hour more here it would had been great. I can't help it but it felt like (is it just me?) that Romero tried to include some society criticism, of the world's current state, and yet in my mind he never really succeeded in it. The most biggest surprise was, a spoiler up ahead!, a lot of people survived, even all those filler characters and main zombies. It's a bit weird thing to say but it just didn't feel right .
