Eisner Doesn't Try For Symbolism and His Reboot is Better For Itnew

Breck Eisner’s remake of George Romero’s The Crazies is one of those movies dishonest critics use for target practice. It has no big names or budget that they feel compelled to respect and so disrespect inspires them to ignore its visual wit and skillful pacing.

Old-Fashioned Horror Film Has Ample Scares and Fun Suspensenew

Zack Snyder began his Dawn of the Dead remake with The Man Comes Around, and director Breck Eisner has utilized Cash's version of We'll Meet Again to kick off his redo of The Crazies. Cash's wavering, vulnerable voice acts as a nice precursor to zombie terror.

Fortunate Sonnew

This film directed by the son of Michael Eisner is a stunning piece of work -- stunningly inept, stunningly incoherent, stunningly awful in every way imaginable.

Heroic Efforts and Silly Plot Turns Leave Earnest Sahara in the Dustnew

Sahara has a world-is-my-oyster feel rooted less in the magic of moviemaking than it is in a jingoistic belief embraced by some Americans, of their own homegrown superheroic capabilities. An African civil war, deadly plague and a gorgeous lady doctor just don't stand a chance.
