Consensus: George A. Romero's latest entry in his much-vaunted Dead series is not as fresh as his genre-inventing original, Night of the Living Dead. But Land of the Dead does deliver on the gore and zombies-feasting-on-flesh action.

Owen Gleiberman
Entertainment Weekly

The movie is listless and uninspired.

The plot held no surprises and the acting no revelations.

There is so much symbolism that after a time, this feels less like a film than a thinly veiled lecture on the current global situation. But this has always been Romero's metier.

Village Voice

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.

Mike Clark
USA Today

It's fairly solid fun without breaking any new ground.

The Film Stage

The Dead Lands offers an odd mix of cultural identity that falls prey to clichéd tropes and one-dimensional characters.

Zombies just aren't that interesting as villains because they zombie ahead.

Geoff Pevere
Toronto Star

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.

Joshua Starnes

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.
