Gallowwalkers (2012) Review

GallowWalkers reviewSynopsis: (from IMDb) A cursed gunman (Snipes) whose victims come back from the dead recruits a young warrior to help in the fight against a gang of zombies.

My (very) Quick Review: I can’t believe Gallowwalkers reportedly cost 12 millions USD to produce. What I can believe though is that it was shelved for 7 years before release.

GallowWalkers sells itself as a Zombie-Western with Wesley Snipes kicking deadies asses. In reality, Wesley Snipes does not do much apart from giving long serious glares and do “cool” poses.

This film could have been the start of a new franchise (the pitch sounded exciting) but it will further diminish whatever credit Wesley Snipes had left with movie fans.

Bad editing, worse acting, ridiculous wardrobe choices (that tries too hard to look cool), GallowWalkers is a big budget indie disaster. It’s one thing to want to try to mix genre and pay homage to classic Sergio Leone’s movies, it’s another thing to be able to pull it off.

My Rating: 4/10
