I'm a bit wary of reviews based on content and acting for a film like this. As an avid horror fan (zombie movies in particular), I generally know what to expect when going into a film like this. When I notice a zombie film I've never heard of before, I pretty much know what to expect: bad acting, poor production quality, sub par effects, etc. Now, this is a great rule of thumb if you're trying to steer clear of said downfalls.
For a horror fan such as myself, though, I can definitely enjoy the "camp-factor" of a low-budget horror film. I can laugh at the bad acting and poor effects, and cheer when the predictable events unfold, as if I'd seen the future.

The point I'm making here is that "Gangs of the Dead" is by NO MEANS a breakthrough film, but it's a lot of fun to watch and the production made great use of an obviously mediocre effects budget. The CGI is surprisingly decent (TV quality even), and they definitely made a smart move in saving a good chunk of the budget for the death effect on one of the main characters (not going to spoil it - it's definitely Fulci-esque). Noel G (aka Noel Gugliemi) was the best actor in the film for sure (perhaps it's because he's always the same guy). The rest of the cast was pretty laughable - especially the girl playing Latasha. Her whining and whimpering had me in stitches for the majority of the film.

In summation, I'd advise any fan of super campy horror to take a look at this movie. It's not the best, but it'll keep you laughing for a while.
Steer clear if you're looking for a Romero film.

Plot: A meteor shower turns people into zombies. Members of two local rival gangs are trapped in a warehouse when all this goes down.

The movie is ok, it has brief, very brief, glimpses of okish acting. The film is too dark (as in lighting) and it is hard sometimes to make out wha tis happening. The special effects and the zombie make-up were decent.

The plot was annoying considering that half the characters were annoying and you just wanted to see the zombies eat them (Cesar and Latasha). Latasha, played by Dayana Jamine, even with bad acting, managed to introduced one of the most annoying characters I have ever seen. The character of Cesar, played by Noel Gugliemi, managed to prove that testosterone in emergency situations proves fatal.

Although the movie was ok and somewhat entertaining, the interactions between the characters was frustrating. The movie basically had stupid characters.

Gangs of the Dead (Dwayne Stinnett, 2006)

If you're like me, you're probably here because you saw Reggie Bannister's name and said “okay, Reggie Bannister's in it, might as well give it a shot.” I've been finding over the past few years that Reggie Bannister, when not paired with Don Coscarelli, is not enough reason to watch a movie. This was just the final nail in a coffin sealed by such forgettable tripe as The Rage, Sigma Die!, Fallen Angels, and Wishmaster.

Plot: you know how there was that one test you didn't study for in high school, and you spent the entire day until seventh period hoping the zombie apocalypse would happen and get you out of it? Yeah, it's kind of like that, except the “test” in question is a major drug deal where the cops have managed to score front-row tickets to a score that can put cuffs on big names from two huge rival gangs, or so they think, until the zombies show up. After that, it becomes just another run-from-the-zombies movie, indistinguishable from dozens of others, except in the places where most of those others are better.

That, of course, is the problem with basement-budget horror films whose directors are out to make a quick buck—they're not putting any effort into thinking up something interesting to do with the story, the effects, anything. It's just a question of assembling the various parts of a bunch of other movies in a slightly different order, troweling on some vaguely decomposed-looking makeup, and shooting something that can be stuck on a DVD and sold in one of those eighty-packs of low-budget horror movies you can find at Best Buy for twenty bucks.

Maybe I'm just a sucker for zombie films, but I really liked this one. No one will be recommending this for any major awards, but this is a horror film, and if you want "Oscar contender," before you can enjoy a horror movie, you're not really a horror fan. But, if you've gotten past the film's title and cover art to this babble, you may be able to enjoy this thing. Now, this isn't the best zombie film I've seen; in a way, it's just another low budget re-think on the "Night of the Living Dead." And, while the zombies seem under represented (as in NOTLD), the zombies aren't supposed to be the stars, they simply provide the cause for the living, in a confined space, under stress, to reveal who they really are. The character who really moves this story along is a very unlikable hard-as-they-come gangsta, who kills almost as many of the living as the zombies do. However, his actions may also be what keeps this movie from being completely predictable. And you also probably wont be able to guess who's gonna die early, who's gonna last awhile or who, if anyone will survive. And the end was true to form, and just right, for an inner-city horror movie.
