This is the third sequel to Night of the Living Dead. In Part 2, Romero made his species evolve socially. Then, Part 3’s zombies started showing signs of intelligence. In Land of the Dead, their motor skills have increased. The zombies are more aware of their surroundings and each other, can communicate, avoid obstacles easily, swim and manipulate tools or weapons.
The living dead were always vicious, but their number was the reason they were scary; they were slow and feeble otherwise. This sequel introduces an additional irreversible difficulty level in making them “us”. It also takes a rather political approach and now fully assumes its apocalyptic promise. This time, most of the action takes place in a zombie-ridden desolated district.
George A. Romero gave us full-on horror in 1968, humor in 1978, war in 1985, and now tackles the post-apocalypse subgenre. The story is fun, the characters colorful and the action old school. Photographic quality and production value have shown nothing but improvement since the beginning of the franchise. Land of the Dead follows the tradition and features popular actors to top it off.
