Here’s yet another take on the now royalty-free Night of the Living Dead. The zombies sometimes look legit, sometimes not. It is the 3D that doesn't do them justice. The CG lacks texture and is hard to buy. Simply put, this an extreme remake with only its militaristic vibe in common with the original Day of the Dead. The writing and directing is decent, but no passion comes across.
The actors and set designers deserve better. This is a rushed cheap production that cares little for pacing and ambiance. The photo has its ups and downs and the camera shakes too much. The zombie epidemic starts from nothing and escalates implausibly fast. Many liberties are taken in regards to redefining the zombie. Having them run angrily is one of them.
Its characters are battle-ready; equipped with guns and bludgeoning or slashing weapons. This sets the table for action and heroism. The story in fact depicts a superficial war against zombies and makes it look cool instead of depressing. The film relies too much on post-production to be scary and too little on simple storytelling and suspense, though, and is terrible as a sequel...
