Land of the Dead

Rated R 2005

If the Star Wars movies have taught us anything, it's that waiting 20 years for a new sequel by a guy named George can lead to disappointment. Romero has had all kinds of ideas for a new Living Dead movie since Day of the Dead, and he crams too many of them into his latest, leaving the zombies as bit players in their own film. Set in a walled-off city where the rich live in a fancy high-rise and the poor inhabit a criminal street, Land of the Dead focuses primarily on class struggle, embodied on one end by rich fat-cat Kaufman (Dennis Hopper) and on the other by mercenary thug Cholo (John Leguizamo). Caught in the middle is generic good guy Riley (The Ring Two's Simon Baker), and left on the fringes is Big Daddy (Eugene Clark), a bald black zombie who has gained a degree of sentience and is leading his "people" in a crusade of vengeance. Big Daddy, unfortunately, is not very convincing, especially when his bald head sweats.
