Dawn Of The Dead (2004)

Zack Snyder directs Sarah Polley, Ving Rhames and Mekhi Phifer in this action horror remake of George A. Romero’s zombies-in-a-shopping-mall classic.

A rare mainstream lead outing for the always welcome Sarah Polley. Slick – probably the neatest, cleanest movie Snyder has ever made. The intensity is absorbing, the performances fun. It feels like a backhanded compliment but the credit sequence are the highlights. In the 00s there were a lot of remakes of videoshop cult classic that merely smoothed over and glossed out everything exciting about their original counterparts… this is the rare outlier of the Platinum Dunes era in that it often thumps to its own gory beat.
