Not a complete waste
22 February 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is one of those films which make you want to read the book it came from to get the complete picture. There is a lot of 'fill in between the lines' in this,adding more characterisation as you do.

This is a bit unfair to this movie which is quite good for it's type,and no film ever catches the complete nuances of a novel. Compared on it's own merit, it's a pretty decent 'revenge' thriller,as our hero sets out to find the man who shot his paw! But when he does, he realises that it wasn't exactly as he thought it would be. The love he feels for his target's daughter, complicates matters.

No academy award winning acting on view here, but the stars do their parts well and Chita (Richard Martin) as the hero's adopted brother, is particularly good, more interested in chasing girls than revenge gun-play, he stands beside his 'brother' just the same and backs his play.

Nothing earth shaking and I still feel like I should read the book!
