Plenty of cliches, but still worth a look.
7 September 2000 | by (Culver, Indiana) – See all my reviews

This movie includes most every cliche from every prior western movie. And yet it also includes a bit extra that makes it worth a look. The main advantage is the impish charm of Marty Robbins – his performance is good enough to make me wonder why he didn't have more of a movie career. I think he could have gone much farther.

The main disadvantage is that Marty Robins doesn't personally sing. I bought this movie with the expectation that he sing at least once, but that didn't happen. What genius decided it would be a good idea to make a western starring Marty Robins that didn't include at least one song performed by the man himself? A smart movie maker would have found some excuses for 3-4 songs at least.
