The different western
16 December 2002 | by (Hopkins, Missouri) – See all my reviews

Jack Slade is a remarkably different western. The hero,is not handsome, but is very dirty and with each scene goes from the loved hero to the unloved bad guy. It shows the emotion of the gunfighter and his hatred for his job. I wonder if it is truly an honest western depicting the gunfighter. I am surprised it did not become a cult film. This movie asks the question. Are their really any good guys. The only real problem with the film is that the weapons used, do not fit the pre-civil war era.
