Day of the Dead (2008)
Summerygovernment contained city is infected by zombies when people who are bitten by zombies are taken to the local hospital. Meanwhile, the remaining survivors take cover in an underground tunnel. Day of the Dead opens with a Military road block securing a small town Colorado highway. We quickly become acquainted with Captain Rhodes (Ving Rhames), Corporal Sarah Cross (Mena Suvari), Privates Bud Crain (Stark Sands) and Salazar (Nick Cannon); all of them laced with "I mean business" mugs.
The movie begins in a small town in Colorado. Trevor (Michael Welch) and his girlfriend, Nina (AnnaLynne McCord), are in an abandoned building with two of their friends. They leave the building and the movie shows a bunch of soldiers, who have set up a roadblock, sealing off the city. We are introduced to Captain Rhodes (Ving Rhames) and Corporal Sarah Cross (Mena Suvari). Soon after, privates Bud Crain (Stark Sands) and Salazar (Nick Cannon) show up. Cross takes Bud to go and visit her mother, who has become sick. She arrives home, talks to her brother (Trevor), checks on her mother, then goes to the house of one of Trevor's friends after he and Nina explain his symptoms as being similar to their mother's.
When Bud and Sarah arrive at Trevor's friend's house, they find the bodies of the kid's parents. They radio Captain Rhodes and take Nina, Trevor, and Trevor's mom to the local hospital. There, Sarah talks to Dr. Logan (Matt Rippy) at the urging of Rhodes, while out in the waiting room all the infected have suddenly gone frozen. Bud runs to inform Sarah of the situation, when all the infected reanimate. Nina and Trevor escape and run to the radio station while Sarah, Salazar, and Bud become trapped in an upstairs room. After dispatching Rhodes (who was infected), the three of them (Bud now infected due to a bite from Rhodes) make a stop at the gun store then go and rescue Trevor and Nina from the radio station.
The group heads to the abandoned warehouse from the beginning of the film. Bud has turned into a zombie, but is somehow able to think and does not attack his friends. (Much like Bub from the original Day of the Dead (film)) The group descend into a underground bunker, where they reunite with Dr. Logan. They find out about a government project directed by Dr. Engel (Pat Kilbane). Engel and a group of zombies kill Bud, Salazar, and Logan before Nina, Trevor, and Sarah burn them all using gas tanks. They escape and the movie ends with a screamer of a sole surviving zombie jumping in front of the camera.

well this is what bothered me most of the movie
1)zombies could somewhat think
4)the virus was airborne
5)all zombies turned at the same time
1)was scary at some parts
2)overall great plot (minus the things Zs could do)
4)twist at the end

I felt bad for Ving Rhames. Everyone else I could understand getting sucked into this poorly written turd. The original Day of the Dead was a suckfest but this remake took a giant step sideways proving that you can remake a bad film and not exceed the original. On second thought, it's actually worse than the original. I hope it doesn't hurt Ving's career. Oh, and thank god for BitTorrent. I'd be flying out west demanding my money back if I had spent money to watch this steamer.
