Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The movie is listless and uninspired."
‑ Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
"The plot held no surprises and the acting no revelations."
‑ Stephen Hunter, Washington Post
"Romero's zombie movies have always been about people, not zombies. That's what makes them work so well and Land of the Dead is no exception."
‑ Joshua Starnes,
"While it's hardly Romero's scariest achievement, it is a thrilling, disturbing commentary on a man-eat-man world that hits just close enough to home to give viewers an uncomfortable pause."
‑ Rossiter Drake, San Francisco Examiner
"With a master's control, Romero sets his characters in motion and against each other."
‑ Rob Gonsalves,
"Romero's fourth-grade dialogue doesn't help matters, but anyone seeking out the latest achievements in cranial ruptures, spewing-blood gouts, and ground-beef spillage need look no further."
‑ Michael Atkinson, Village Voice
"It's fairly solid fun without breaking any new ground."
‑ Mike Clark, USA Today
"Romero is back and just as good as he was then..."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"Romero's best film in a quarter century ..."
‑ Lucius Gore, ESplatter
"a weak, if fun, appendix to Romero's excellent trilogy."
‑ Anton Bitel, Eye for Film
"Zombies just aren't that interesting as villains because they zombie ahead."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"Land of the Dead not only leaves you wishing Romero and his zombies might come back to feast once more, but that they'd take their time."
‑ Geoff Pevere, Toronto Star
"Gory sight gags and intestine eating abound in this must-see movie for fans of the horror genre."
‑ Cole Smithey,
"Land of the Dead may be the baddest genre film this side of Y2K."
‑ Rob Humanick, Projection Booth
"If this does turn out to be the 65-year-old director's last foray into this territory, it's a great note to go out on."
‑ Ethan Alter, Film Journal International
