For me personally the worst movie of the three. I didn't like the combination of science and military and the macho spirit that some showed, annoying even at times. But flap turds are always and everywhere, even in an apocalyptic zombie world. Even though the military as a whole came out quite one-sided.

Nice was the character of doctor Frankenstein with his experiments and investigations, this to find a solution to a safer world. Quite a bit of gore here, the typical eighties horror guts and brain pulp that pass in review. The zombies looked fine, by the way, well, fine…

Nice entertainment and entertaining, only I was a bit hungry in terms of plot, although this is not the most important thing in these kinds of films. Excellent was Romero who, like the zombies, evolved as a zombie film director.

I actually liked this one better than Dawn of The Dead. I'm not sure why, but maybe it's because I liked the 2004 version of Snyder better than the original (or at least in my memory). Now the threat comes not only from the zombies but also from the army commander. Furthermore, the research into the behavior of zombies is also original. A common thread through Romero's film seems to be a character with a black skin. Usually in horror movies they die quickly (sort of stereotypical it seems?) but Romero makes sure in his films that they are strong people with leadership qualities. This movie has quite a few special characters and that makes it stand out. An alcoholic, a Steel shouting horn, an insane army commander, a bitch, an unethical doctor and so on. This too is in fact single location which is also a recurring thing in Romero's Zombie trilogy. They are 3 decent films but certainly not my favorites within the genre.
