My quick rating 8,9/10. Take the brilliance of the first one, add a budget. Throw in comedy and turn your hero into, a wise cracking man who must again defeat the deadites. This version takes no time to get going at all and never lets up from start to finish. There are few words to describe just how good this trilogy is, take it away, Bruce......."GROOVY"
