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.
