Rather fun if just slightly flawed zombie effort
Following a worldwide zombie outbreak, a small band of outlaws in the post-apocalyptic wasteland band together to drive out a demented psychopath that has taken control of an army of zombies and stop her before she turns the rest of the human race into the creatures.
This here was quite a decent enough effort. One of the best points found here is the fact that there's quite a lot to like here regarding the exploits of the different clans at war here. There's a lot to really like about how this one sets up the whole storyline about the downfall of civilization and turning it back into the Old West backdrop which in turn sets up the war at the heart of the film. Using the zombies as a soldier for the evil army is a fun idea that really gets a lot of play here with the film's big action scenes here featuring the zombies attacking, from the opening ambush of the defenseless town being overrun by the creatures, the bloody bar-fight that thins out the herd and the blazing battle with the zombies at the supply depot out in the desert which offer plenty of big thrills. The later half all features tons of big action scenes against the zombies as well, from the shootout in the whorehouse to the battle in the underground mines with the zombies to the massive finale where the zombies overrun the town and forces everything into a sense of chaos. Featuring everything going wrong at once as the zombie hordes going crazy and ripping everyone to pieces as well as unleashing plenty of strong gunfights to finally put everything down, the high-energy sequence gives this a really strong finishing stand against the zombies and the ensuing rampage works giving this one plenty of action. Alongside the great-looking zombie makeup and plenty of bloodshed, there's a lot to like here while holding it up over the few minor flaws. The biggest issue against this one is the fact that the film never really bothers to develop any kind of coherent story as this one seems to just ramble on incessantly for no real reason at times. There's never an explanation for why the whole army comes together and what the whole point of the zombie army is supposed to accomplish other than she somehow got to control them which is another facet that's never explained. This one doesn't give anything about why or how they obey her, and overall it really seems forced in how the whole apocalypse happens. The other minor issue with this one is the CGI gore which crops up far too often here and stands out for how bad it is being CGI blood-splatter which is all the worse. These here are the film's biggest issues.
Rated Unrated/R: Graphic Violence and Language.
Being an old fan of Nick Carter, I decided to check out the zombie film, Dead 7. And well, let's put it this way, he needs to stick to singing.
The acting was terrible! One thing I noticed about this movie is that there were different types of accents that the actors were trying to pull off. Yet they would seem to forget they were in character. One minute one of the male actors, if you can call him an actor, sounded like he was in the old west (where this movie is supposed to take place) and then the next he didn't have an accent at all. And I'm not talking about one actor in particular. There were a few laughs. Joey Fatone (*NSYNC) with his lover, the Rum bottle, and AJ McLain (Backstreet Boys) as a Joker type villain. The only thing good about Carter's performance was his looks. He didn't do well in his other films so making another was a huge mistake. Other stars of this failure include Jeff Timmons of 98 Degrees, Erik- Michael Estrada of O-Town and one of the 90's decade's most talented singers (at least in my opinion) Jon Secada. With TV host Carrie Keegan playing the female lead.
The plot doesn't start off well, and it doesn't develop at all. It's easy to root for the "boring" zombies. I'll say it again, Nick Carter needs to stick to singing. Maybe he had a good idea when starting this script and it didn't turn out well. Or maybe he just wanted to help himself and his fellow former heartthrobs get some extra dough.
I hate to be another viewer giving this film a bad review but let's face it, this one should have stayed back in the Old West where it came from. One should be used to bad Syfy channel movies by now! But this is one of the worst. I give Dead 7 1 out of 10 Washed Up Boybanders.

Can someone tell me why?...
"Dead 7" pretty much goes as the vast majority of SyFy and The Asylum produced movies go; downhill.
I was initially lured in by the concept of a zombie movie, and I must admit that anything just even remotely zombie has my interest. So I sat down to watch "Dead 7".
Well, after having seen Debra Wilson in "Z Nation", where she put on a good performance, I must admit that I sort of had my hopes up for "Dead 7". But then again, I saw that "Dead 7" also had Nick Carter and Joey Fatone on the cast list. What is this? Return of the Living Dead Boyband? Right, well back on track... Debra Wilson, however, failed to impress me with her performance in "Dead 7", as it was just over the top and the character was laughable. And needless to go into detail about the performances of the former two boyband members - enough said!
The story in "Dead 7" was pointless and turned out to be anything but entertaining. And I was tempted to get up to watch something else a couple of times throughout the course of this movie.
And what was up with the fact that they used human teeth as a currency in this movie? It just didn't make any logical sense whatsoever.
The effects were adequate. But for a zombie movie, don't get your hopes up, because it is not groundbreaking special effects, nor is it among the top of the line.
I have watch "Dead 7", so I can check it off my zombie list. However, I can in all honesty say that I will not be making a second trip back to watching this movie, because it just offered nothing worthwhile.
