My god, what a let down of a movie...
The makeup effects were superb! The feeding scenes were beyond wonderful! Greg Nicatero did an amazing job! (I especially like the added detail of the nose bone protruding a bit out of the decaying nose). The Story was so-so, I wouldn't expect much from a zombie movie, though it felt like Romero was trying too much. The Zombie's behavior, utter bullshit, that's all I can say. I am a total elitest when it comes to zombies. I was happy that they couldn't run, but they could use fucking guns, and had fucking Frankenstien as their leader!
The Simon and Nick cameo was pretty good.
So the movie satisfied my tastes for gore, but everything else left me feeling empty and wanting those effects, but a much better story. I should have guess though, the ending od Day of the Dead was almsot perfect foreshadowing as to what would be in this film, and I'm talking about Bub (If you've seen Day of the Dead, you'll know what I'm talking about).
