THE DEAD SHALL INHERIT THE EARTH.
In the future, zombies roam the planet and the surviving humans are holed up in a city; infighting among them threatens to give the undead their chance. Director George A. Romero returns to his zombie franchise with a fourth chapter that is undeniably good-looking and entertaining. Modern visual effects make the undead look more frightening, and Romero has his sense of humor intact, but everything is also awfully familiar (including the social messages) and the central characters are weak.
2005-U.S.-Canada-France. 93 min. Color. Widescreen. Written and directed by George A. Romero. Cast: Simon Baker (Riley Denbo), John Leguizamo (Cholo DeMora), Dennis Hopper (Kaufman), Asia Argento, Robert Joy, Eugene Clark.
Trivia: Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright from Shaun of the Dead (2004) appear as a couple of zombies. Followed by Diary of the Dead (2008).
