Dawn of the Dead
Ana (Sarah Polley) is an ER nurse, who questions why a patient with a simple bite wound on his hand would be given a brain scan. Next her husband is attacked by a badly mutilated neighbor child, ripping his throat out. The child then rushes after Ana only to be stopped when she slams a door. Just when she thinks she is safe her now dead husband comes suddenly to life and attacks her. She escapes with just a heartbeat to spare only to face a crazed world where the undead are slaughtering any humans they can find. This all transpires before the opening credits, almost 8 minutes into the film. "Dawn of the Dead" isn't really a remake of the George Romero 1978 film, instead, director Zack Snyder retells the supernatural survival story putting his own spin on it. Ana soon teams up with surly cop Kenneth (Ving Rhames) and they search for a safe haven joined by an electronics salesman, Michael (Jake Webber), and a young hood, Andre (Mekhi Phifer) and his very pregnant Russian wife (Inna Korobkina). Together, they battle the zombies as they head for the one place they can feel secure - the Crossroads Mall. Once there, they are accosted by three security guards, led by CJ (Michael Kelly), who are ready to kill to protect their turf. A battle of wills and a turning of tables puts the more sensible minds in charge, and they are then joined by additional living humans, and together they make plans to escape to a, hopefully, zombie-free sanctuary. The film is full of action and humor and fans of the genre will surely be entertained.
