Oh look! What astounding creativity! What a display of originality! A movie about dead people who become zombies that need to eat living people! Wow! I haven√¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢t seen THAT done a thousand times before!
Forgive me if I sound a little sarcastic, but the premise for Dawn of the Dead has been done at least 7 or 8 times already, and 2 or 3 times in the last 3 or 4 years. Couldn√¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢t they at least say the zombies are out to quench their undying thirst for√¢‚Ç¨¬¶ oh I don√¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢t know√¢‚Ç¨¬¶ pudding? Why is it ALWAYS human flesh? I know this is a remake of the 1978 film of the same name√¢‚Ç¨¬¶ but why remake a movie with a plot that√¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢s been done to death (pardon the pun) already?
And what√¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢s the deal with Ving Rhames being in it? I remember when he got good parts in REAL films√¢‚Ç¨¬¶ now he√¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢s been reduced to this?!? What a waste of a great actor.
Yahoo Movies describes the film this way:
An unexplained plague has decimated the world’s population and yet…the dead aren’t dying. They’ve become zombies, stalking endlessly in a constant quest to feed on the flesh and blood of the few remaining living. A ragtag group of desperate survivors in a Wisconsin town seek refuge in a large indoor mall, where they must learn not only to protect themselves from the ever-increasing zombie horde, but also to co-exist with each other as a last bastion of humanity. Sealed off from the rest of what used to be the world, the group uses every available resource (both within and without) in their against-all-odds fight to remain alive and human.
