A Burning Desire For Revenge
6 August 2010 | by (london) – See all my reviews

This film has a slightly unusual scene that will probably stick in the memory.The villain and his henchman have killed the heroes partner and taken his money.They then have a discussion as to the best way to get rid of him.Now we are talking in the middle of an uninhabited prairie.So they come to the slightly ghoulish idea of cremating him.However for some strange reason they do not think to remove any items that wont burn.As a result part of the dead cowboys harmonica is quite extraordinarily found by the hero,which eventually leads him to the villains.Other than that this is a forgettable western more so by virtue of the fact that,at least to me ,the actors are all unknowns.The fist fights are abysmally staged and quite laughable.
