In Romero's harrowing newest vision,
the world (as humankind has
known it) is merely a memory. In its place
is the never ending nightmare existence of us the
living versus them the "walkers."
Both the lofty heights of Fiddler's Green and the
demoralizing lows of the city below are lorded over
by a handful of ruthless opportunists, led by Kaufman
(Dennis Hopper), who
keeps his hands in everything. To bring food and
other essential supplies to the occupants of the
city, a hardened group of mercenaries headed by
Riley (Simon Baker)
and his second-in-command, Cholo (John
Leguizamo) run retrieval missions outside
the city, protected by their massive armored vehicle,
Dead Reckoning. Riley and Cholo, like Kaufman, are
in it for the money, which they hope to use for
their own escapes Riley to the North, with promises
of "a world without fences"
and freedom, and Cholo to the luxury of Fiddler's
Green, far away from the violent life he has known.
When Cholo commandeers Dead Reckoning, intent on
extorting millions out of Kaufman and his cronies,
Riley and his ragtag group including Slack (Asia
Argento) and Charlie (Robert
Joy) are called into action to stop Cholo
and, in the process, protect the city and its population
from the growing army of evolving zombies storming
its weakening perimeter.
