I can only think of three reasons to see this plague virus bore ..........
25 January 2011 | by merklekranzSee all my reviews

You absolutely must see every Wings Hauser, Brion James, or Jeffrey Combs film, could be the only three possible reasons to see "Dead Man Walking". The whole thing looks like it was shot in a Newark junk yard. The kidnapped girl is so unsympathetic, you will regret that Brion James keeps her alive. Speaking of Brion, he is fanatical and memorable as the villain . Other than a Russian Roulette game with chainsaws, everything else is forgettable. The meaningless and totally "not funny" newscasts that are spaced throughout the film are nothing but padding for a script that could have been thought up in fifteen minutes. Believe me, unless you are a fan of the actors, this is to be avoided like the plague (pun intended). - MERK
