Cast can't save this
11 January 2010 | by (Victoria, BC) – See all my reviews

Obviously, this "Dead Man Walking" is not to be confused with the 1995 Susan Sarandon movie of the same name. That movie was a quality production, for one thing, and this movie isn't. I should mention that I don't automatically look down at B movies - I watch them all the time, and I find some of them to be enjoyable. But there's pretty much nothing to enjoy in this movie. It's very cheap - it looks like it was filmed in junkyards and boring desert locations with nothing done to spruce these locations up. The low budget also means a lot of stuff happens off camera (check the scenes where someone gets shot, for example.) The screenplay doesn't feel like much thought was put into it

  • it seems at times they were making it up as they went along. The


movie does boast a somewhat impressive B movie cast - Hauser, James, and Combs - but they all seem to be running on autopilot. The only moment of interest in the movie is the sequence where two people play Russian roulette with a chainsaw, but the promising consequences of that are spoiled by the movie's previously mentioned habit of stuff happening off camera.
