Director Zack Snyder‘s latest movie, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, isn’t quite the “trash fire” that some people contend, but it is a troublesome mess. That argument though has been applied to most of his films with only one consistent exception. His 2004 debut feature, Dawn of the Dead, remains his best. It lacks the social/consumer commentary of George Romero‘s 1978 classic, but it finds a life and energy of its own with some bravura set pieces and action beats.
