We gave it a C-

You’d think that George A. Romero, godfather of the zombie pic, would be flattered by the success of derivations like 28 Days Later and last year’s Dawn of the Dead remake. ”I don’t think of it that way,” says the 65-year-old director, who all but defined the genre with 1968’s Night of the Living Dead. ”I was a little frustrated that they weren’t calling me up to do one.” Universal finally had the good sense to find his number, and Romero’s fourth dance with the walking deceased places Simon Baker, John Leguizamo, and a Rumsfeldian Dennis Hopper in a locked-down city surrounded by an evolving race of mutants.
