Trivia

The opening credits includes a montage detailing the zombie outbreak leading up to the events of this film, with black and white footage and radio broadcasts depicting the infection's spread over the Earth. Some of the images come from George A. Romero's Night of the Living Dead (1968) portraying the beginning of the outbreak. Romero wanted to use more footage from the other two films of the series up to that point, Dawn of the Dead (1978), and Day of the Dead (1985), but was unable to due to complications with the rights of those films. This is because each of his zombie films have been produced by different studios. This can also be seen in the credits for Tom Savini's cameo in the film. He is the undead version of the character he portrayed in Dawn of the Dead (1978), named "Blades", but he could only be credited in this film as "Machete Zombie". See more »

Land of the Dead - not too bad.
24 June 2005 | by jimmymanboneSee all my reviews

I went in to this movie expecting the worst and couldn't have been more wrong. Romero did a good job keeping to what he does best- zombie and social commentary. The special effects and gore were really good and "Dead Reckoning" doesn't look as much like a DAWN OF THE DEAD (remake) parking shuttle, as it does in the trailers. I did feel that they introduced "Big Daddy" way to early in the film and overused him. I would have enjoyed the movie more if he was just another zombie. Cameo's by Simon Pegg, Tom Savini, and Edgar Wright were barely noticeable. I would have liked to see more "daytime" scenes but I don't think that is what Romero had in mind. Overall, it was a fun movie that had a few sudden scares and some good humor.
