Dead 7 full movie review - Boy band singers commit atrocities to mankind!
I can appreciate the complexities that go into making movies, it's not an easy thing to do however, there are so many things wrong with this movie, how do I count the ways.
The acting, horrible. The writing, atrocious. The plot, ever-changing, but never for the better. Still, it had its good points. I particularly enjoyed the part where it ended. Not so much the scripted ending, just that the movie actually ends. I watched it hoping that it would get good at some point, even blending in the usual "norms" of movies of this genre. That never happened. It was bad from the start, it was worse during the run and while watching it one prayed for the ending or their own demise. The story is by Nick Carter, former boy band singer with a few other notables from other boy bands, I'm truly shocked that the editor while viewing the dailies didn't commit suicide. Then again, I don't know that they hadn't. Many other things that made no sense was the fact that the town was either dirt with dilapidated shacks or modern city with paved streets to include a modern bar with electric lighting, drinks and all the amenities including a pool table. Also of note, it took the heroes two days to get to the mountaintop with a horse, motorcycle, and jeep at the end it took them minutes to get back with a mixture of horseback and on foot, a journey which would have taken the slow-moving zombies a week to make. They put the bad guy, also known as Johnny Vermillion, in jail without searching him as well as no one guarding the prisoner at the jail as to hear a guy with a sledgehammer beating on the wall outside of the jail. Come to think of it, why didn't the bad guy just go through the front door as nobody seemed to be on guard duty? Also, think very highly of actress Debra Wilson. Although I've only seen her in comedies like Mad TV this role was not good. It looked as if she lost a bet and the acting was so over the top unfortunately it came across as ludicrous. The plot of Wilson's character as the leader of the zombie horde was to wipe out the town of Harpers Junction. Question, why? It's a hole in the ground. Nothing more. It looks as if time had already destroyed it. In the lair of the Zombie Queen the heroes seemingly had manage to get separated from one another making it easy for their characters to get picked off. Two of the primary characters carried swords and what looks like cycles. Seriously, these are slow moving zombies. Really, how hard could it be to wipe out the majority of these slow-moving creatures on their by decapitating them. But the epitome of stupidity is as they're within a stone's throw of the bad guys hideout when they're sneaking up to there buildings, they're shouting to one another. Seriously?! Seriously?? This is the time when one should talk in whispers or just simply just shut the hell up. Additionally, when the situation exists of a known zombie horde on the loose why is a town full of people completely unarmed. Seems a little strange when there's a zombie apocalypse and absolutely no one in an entire town has any way to defend themselves. This movie was beyond bad but, on the good side the movie ended. Movies like this reminds you just how nice it would have been to be lucky enough to choke on your own popcorn so at least some of the audience will experience a happy ending. Seriously, this was really bad. Really really really bad! So bad, so so very bad.
