Of course is seeing Wesley Snipes.
C. Waters
They seemed to have used all the budget for the few gore effects that were really nicely done, but besides that the movie doesn't have anything to offer.

Do not waist your time watching this movie I made it through half of the move before I realized it was just not going to get any better.

This is a cult film that starts out a little confusing with flashbacks. About 30 minutes into the film Aman (Wesley Snipes) explains the plot. A woman (Alyssa Pridham), near and dear to Aman is raped by a gang of five men, so that the leader's son could "become a man."

Aman enacts revenge on the group of men. However, in this region the dead come back to life (plot point loosely explained at beginning and end of film) and are known as "gallowwalkers" ignoring the fact the word is actually "gallows." Needless to say, the dead want to kill Aman as he hunts them down again. Aman recruits assistance in Kansa (Kevin Howarth).

The plain desert background provided for some great color contrasts, especially the reds, whites, and purples. This is not a zombie film per se, but there are living dead who walk, talk, and die similar to living people. There is graphic blood and body part scenes, but this is not a slasher or typical grindhouse. It takes place out west, but is clearly not a classical western.

The film is a hybrid. It combines aspects of multiple films and makes a production for a narrow audience. The flashback aspect, i.e. keeping the viewer hanging for thirty minutes as they try to figure out what is happening didn't work well.

Parental Guidence: F-bomb, rape, brief nudity.

I've been a Wesley Snipes fan for a long time, going all the way back to 1989 when he portrayed Willie Mays Hayes in MAJOR LEAGUE. Over the years, he's played a wide variety of characters, both good and bad; I've loved many of these, including Nino Brown from NEW JACK CITY, Simon Phoenix from DEMOLITION MAN, and Blade from the titular film trilogy. Unfortunately, however, Snipes seems to have hit a very low point in his career, and his involvement with this recent film, GALLOWWALKERS, is a good example of that. I wanted very badly to like this film, but a messy plot and bad writing kept me from it.

I am still a Wesley Snipes fan, although I hope his career does not take a nosedive like Val Kilmer's did several years ago. Snipes' offscreen troubles with the IRS should not affect his Hollywood status, but his recent film roles seem to indicate otherwise. Hopefully, a role in THE EXPENDABLES 3 will give his career a much needed boost.

GALLOWWALKERS started off with a lot of promise. On the surface, the plot sounds interesting and could potentially make for an intensity-filled flick. Also, having an action veteran like Snipes onboard makes it an even greater pull. There's even the possibility for some excellent carnage in a film like this, which would thrust it into the annals of horror greatness.

Yet, the execution of the film falls way flat, and the result is a lackluster movie that is nothing more than a jumbled mess. The storyline is convoluted and jumpy; I found myself rewinding several times to see if I had missed something. Nothing is explained outright (you have to make A LOT of assumptions and many of those, for me, were wrong) and the confusion took me out of the film very quickly.

Long Story Short:
Gallowwalkers are people who die and come back from the dead. Set in the wild west, where people's lives don't mean anything, Aman, a mysterious cowboy- gunman is seeking revenge on five Gallowwalkers who have raped his girlfriend.

Review:
I found the first ten minutes quite entertaining because it really caught my attention when they talked about a portal between heaven and hell and nuns who guard this portal. But then the story just falls apart, we don't really know what's going on or why things happen the way they do - well, besides Aman's revenge trip. And can we talk about those horrible wigs everyone was wearing?! I mean, I have a better looking synthetic wig at home than what they had to offer - don't ask. They seemed to have used all the budget for the few gore effects that were really nicely done, but besides that the movie doesn't have anything to offer. It's already bad that the story didn't make sense but what's worse is that I really didn't care if it did. I was just glad when the movie was over. This is another proof that many directors shouldn't be writers. It seemed well directed but the script was horrible. Gallowwalkers has apparently been finished a few years ago before Mr. Snipes even went to jail, but I guess they wanted to wait until he gets released, but they should have let it collect dust until the end of time if you ask me. My advice: If you watch the trailer you have basically seen the whole movie and saved 90 minutes of your life. Poor Wesley Snipes, but at least he has the opportunity to be part of the Expendables` Franchise, maybe this will give him the well-deserved comeback. I wish him well!

I don't know much about the director, Andrew Goth, but after watching this polished-turd piece of shit I know never to watch anything else with his name attached to it again. If I would have seen this in the theater I would have demanded my money back--I redboxed it and still might demand my $1.19 be refunded. The ONLY thing this movie brought to the table was Wesley, but even he turned in the worst performance of his career. As a movie fan that usually tells others they are being way too critical and to just enjoy it for what it is, in this case I cant because there is absolutely nothing to enjoy. Just like the premise, this movie is dead, except there's no bringing it back.
