So, the primary complaints I've read about this film all have to do with the low quality of the animation, and, well...they're not wrong. For a film that was released post- 2005, the animation is decidedly unimpressive. The art itself isn't bad, but...it's also not fantastic.
As for the script and acting, I'd give this a solid 9/10. The score is equally impressive, and does a fantastic job of ratcheting up the suspense. Although definitely faster- paced than the Romero 1969 original, were it a live-action film, it would be right at home with some of the more recent zombie fare.
It is without a doubt better than the woeful Day of the Dead remake from the mid-00s, being both better-written and better-acted. Giving some of the characters better backstories definitely helped to build a better rapport with them, and you end up caring for them, save for Hank Cooper, for whom no one has ever cared.
Overall, it's definitely worth watching if you're a fan of the genre, though you most certainly have to get past the unimpressive animation.
