Dull and poorly acted.
17 April 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This was a very dull movie with nothing very memorable about it. This just seemed like another film made for money and without much effort put into it.

None of the characters were interesting. The hero wasn't very cool or bad*ss. But worst of all, all the actors were incredibly wooden. People were treating things like murder like a minor annoyance.

The story was probably interesting, but I had a tough time following it. There was one scene where one character was being chased by a group of other people on horses, and it was probably supposed to be suspenseful and excited, but it just ended up being boring. There was also a very boring but brief gunfight near the end. The rest was just very boring characters talking to each other.

But it wasn't completely horrible. There was some interesting cinematography in it. And there was an intentionally funny boxing match. But overall, it was very forgettable and not worth watching.
