Director Zack Snyder has remoulded George A. Romero's classic 1978 zombie movie, Dawn Of The Dead, into his own vision of a world overrun by flesh-eating undead creatures.
The action begins with nurse Ana (Sarah Polley) waking up to discover her boyfriend has become a tasty midnight snack for a formerly cute neighbour's child. After a narrow escape, she realizes that the whole town is overrun by the ghouls.She is beginning to despair when she runs into survivors Kenneth (Ving Rhames), a tough cop; Michael (Jack Weber); and Andre (Mekhi Phifer), a rebel with a pregnant wife in tow.
The group heads for the local mall where they barricade themselves inside. Slowly more survivors surface and make their way to this last bastion of safety, while outside the zombies are slowly taking over the planet. Now the survivors must learn to co-exist with each other and use every available resource in their fight to remain alive, and more importantly, human.
What the critics are saying:
"...a stylish, gore-drenched shoot-em-up. It may not truly chill, but it does thrill."- Nev Pierce, BBCi Film"Dawn of the Dead works and it delivers just about what you expect when you buy your ticket."- Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times" Give it credit for a sense of bad-luck entropy...but only gore-thirsting teens will be satisfied."- Michael Atkinson, Village Voice
Just another typical Tom Cruise action film, with nothing to get too excited about. The film is loaded with action-film stereotypes and cheesy one-liners. Read More »

Hands of Stone is a bland, unlikable portrayal of a real-life boxer that struggles to hit the highs of Rocky IV let alone Raging Bull or the original Rocky. Mark this one down as “for boxing fanatics only”. Read More »
