"Good zombie fun, the remake of George A. Romero's DAWN OF THE DEAD is the best proof in ages that cannibalizing old material sometimes works fiendishly well."Los Angeles Times
"Snyder, making a killer feature debut, trades home-made cheesiness for knowing style, revels in the sophistication of modern special effects, and stomps off with the best remake...of a horror classic in memory."
"From a technical point of view, the new DAWN is slicker and more polished, and the acting is better, too."Chicago Sun-Times
"Snyder comes up with some 'wow' shots....[T]his DEAD is zippier than 1995's retake on VILLAGE OF THE DAMNED."USA Today
"[The film] still delivers a pretty mean bite as a gross-out/action shockfest."
"[A] reasonably enjoyable shock machine thanks to state-of-the-art effects and an appealing cast..."
"It's good, thrilling fun."
4 stars out of 5 -- "A slick remake....Synder delivers a movie energy and vision that never dilutes the power of the original."Ultimate DVD
