Gunfighters of Casa Grande
12 July 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Over the years I've watched hundreds of Westerns--both B movies and so-called A movies--and this has to be one of the worst I've ever seen. The costumes were flagrantly ill-considered, if not totally inappropriate to the individual actors, i.e. hats that seemed only reminiscently western or unsuitable to the individual actor; a hackneyed and sometimes non-existent plot; mostly no-name actors with virtually no talent; dialogue that belonged in a cartoon; and character names that bespoke of some foreign writer unfamiliar with the concept of exaggeration...not to mention unfamiliar with viewer etiquette, i.e. how not to insult the palette and intelligence of movie fans.

I can think of no redeeming grace for this film except the possibility of its inclusion in a list of the worst movie Westerns of all time.
