Amazingly bad western
14 November 2012 | by (Birmingham, England) – See all my reviews

This must go down as the worst western I have seen. The film lacks a coherent plot, in general the acting and dialogue are terrible, the score is over the top and the colour of the film is way too bright.

The lead actor Alex Nichol- laughably named Joe Daylight in this- puts in a performance that must go down as one of the worst in memory from a leading man. Smug looking and lacking one iota of screen presence or talent, it is excruciating to watch. The only highlights in the acting stakes come from Jorge Mistral as the Traveler who seems the only male actor in this film to have any semblance of ability.

The plot is almost unintelligible- nothing much seems to happen and from half an hour in it became an ordeal just to get to the end. Scene after scene is amateurish beyond belief including one laughable scene in which Diana Lorys is whipped 5 times with a belt but has no marks. Yes this is a low budget film but there is no excuse for such a shoddy effort.

Watch this film and marvel at just how bad it is.
