So after you've seen the "Dead" trilogy, you don't want to see things like "Day Of The Dead 2" or anything, but "Land Of The Dead" is definitely worth your while. Sure it's not as intense and exciting as the original Romero trilogy, but it at least has lots of zombies and an end of the world style situation. At this stage in the game society has entirely changed as we know it and people are getting used to zombie attacks and evolving to try and protect themselves and stop the zombies for once and for all. Unfortunately the zombies seemed to have been doing some evolving of their own and they are now more organized and capable of structure and such which means they are harder to kill of course. It's a fun and bloody film, and I'm sure fans of the series will enjoy it but it really isn't as memorable or intense as any of it's counterparts.
