She-Devil Becomes a War-Angel In Love, 1 August 2011
Author: Dalbert Pringle from New Zealand

Yeah. I know this sounds terribly sexist, but when it comes to Westerns - "The Law Of The West" should strictly forbid them from being reduced to a trifling, little "Chick Flick".

I'm a guy who likes my Westerns rugged, mean, and masculine, with very little interference from women in the story at all.

Sure Chick Flicks are fine when it comes to any other genre of film, but definitely not allowed in a Western.

Ann Savage unconvincingly plays Jean Shelby. This highly-jealous, easily brought to tears woman is (get this) the leader of a tough, all-male band of Confederate raiders. Being so emotionally unstable, Jean's reliability as a leader of these men is seriously brought into question when she secretly turns traitor and falls for a Union soldier, pretty-boy who's actually been stalking her.

Yep. Renegade Girl is a dud.

Like I said before - Westerns should be forbidden to be made into Chick Flicks!
