Posted by juliana On August - 5 - 2013 0 Comment

Title: Gallowwalkers

Directed by: Andrew Goth

Starring: Wesley Snipes, Kevin Howarth, Riley Smith, Tanit Phoenix, Simona Brhlikova, Patrick Bergin, Steven Elder

Running time: 93 minutes, Rated R

Special Features: Behind the Scenes with Interviews and Trailer Gallery

A mysterious gunman named Aman (Wesley Snipes) was cursed by the devil with a deal sealed by his mother to save his life. Anyone Aman kills will be resurrected. He must seek out those he brought to justice and kill them again permanently or be hunted himself and those he has sworn to protect. Aman rescues a young gun headed for the hangman’s noose, gives him an education on the walking dead and how to take them down.

The Positive: Intriguing take on zombies. Very cool horror make-up and CGI. So many good ideas going on an not enough time to showcase them. I liked the horror-western angle. Cowboys and Zombies, why not?

The Negative: Too many jumbled plot lines. Wesley Snipes had almost no dialogue and the parts where he was narrating or supposed to be explaining what was going on, the dialogue (not delivery) was incoherent. The concept of the Gallowwalkers was cool, but what was their purpose? They kill people and take their skin for a week or so and get new skin. That’s it? When Aman kills someone and they resurrect, are they to become Gallowwalkers who are forced to replace their skin or just walking dead that get to keep their faculties and try their hand at life again? It’s never explained. What was the deal with all of the bad wigs? They were f—ing dreadful. There’s a character named Fabulos… that’s just awful.

I will probably have to watch this film again in order to attempt to piece together what the filmmakers are trying to convey. There are so many cool ideas that just got mashed into this story, which created an utterly confusing mess. I want to get it, and I am determined to understand it because they really could’ve had something wonderful, that just wasn’t.

Total Rating: D
