George A. Romero intended to make this film in his hometown of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The story is set there, and it's where he made his other zombie films. However, the producers insisted on filming in Toronto, Ontario, in order to take advantage of Canadian tax incentives, creating a setting that retains Pittsburgh's geography, with physical locations of Toronto that have been altered.

Zombies have taken over the world in Land of the Dead, the remaining survivors live within a walled city to keep the dead out. A revolution is brewing in a plan to overthrow the city. but outside the walls the zombies are developing their intelligence.
The plot kind of sounds a bit lame, but it really does work well and this is a zombie flick that can be taken quite seriously. Romero has again created something great on a tight budget, and he has done well to make it look good, with some great make up effects. The cast are all pretty good, there are some good characters and the dialogue is effective.
Overall Land of the Dead delivers all out zombie action that's great for fans of the genre, good work George.
