Why We Fight
26 January 2006 | by (Vancouver) – See all my reviews

Fighting Deputy is a pretty standard and tame western which has a high body count (3 at least) which is surprising for a movie such as this. Scar Adams (because, yes, he has a scar) is tearing the wild west apart! While the Sheriff is on the look-out for Scar and his gang, the Sheriff's son wants no part of his dad's job, that is, until Dad meets an unfortunate demise.. Oh no1 What is he to do!?? This film is okay I guess, somewhat dry and slow in some places, but Fred Scott is fun to watch in that dopey kind of way. Plus, he sings two ridiculous songs, while his girlfriend tries in vain to keep up with her air-guitaring. Bonus points: Ricochet sound effects!
