Surprisingly good, but still not for kids

This predictably gory zombie movie is actually pretty good considering the premise. Although definitely not for children, adults who appreciate the genre will probably like this take on a classic.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much swearing
Too much consumerism
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (4):
Kids say (7):

The long-awaited fourth film in Romero's zombie series is predictably gory, darkly comic, and grimly class conscious. For all its carnage and brutality then, this movie continues the living-dead legacy, in mounting a political critique of human mass and corporate culture by likening the zombies to us.
