Land of the Dead

George A. Romero's legacy is one unlikely to be appreciated fully in his lifetime but I expect being given the opportunity to make this film is as close as damnit. it sticks to the format so well and expands on what has gone before it given it's obviously sizable budget, but despite that it doesnt feel like your standard Hollywood fare. The main reason it feels so different is the overt social commentary that I love. And with such a high, often hilarious body count and some great make up you can forgive the stodgy acting even from Dennis Hopper who should do better.
Asia Argento at first seems like a bit of pointless eye candy but her performance hits home the real fear you would feel and highlights how hardcore the main zombie killers are as she is thrown into the mix.
This film is proper jokes, and it looks fancy to boot.
