When there's a whole mess of zombie killing to be done, who cares about reflective writing or that time-wasting element of suspense?
Overall, this Dead is zippier than 1995's retake on "Village of the Damned" and somewhat less junky than the recent remake of "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre."
My only complaint is that its plot flatlines compared to the 1979 version, which was trickier, wittier and smarter. Romero was not above finding parallels between zombies and mall shoppers.
Calling this version of Dawn of the Dead a remake is applying a misnomer. It's more of a re-imagination.
