Quotes

Willie Duggans: So I'm not good enough to come to meeting! Just because I'm a bounty hunter. You miserable bunch of hypocrites! Do you know why I'm a bounty hunter? Because you good people pay me to do it, that's why! You can't do your own dirty work, but you can't wait to spit on the man who does it for you!

I'm off to order this movie. I hope it is on DVD by now.
16 October 2011 | by (Michigan) – See all my reviews

I grew up watching movie matinée at 4:00 after school. Immediately after, my brother and I went outside to recreate what we had seen. We were awesome. Most movies these days don't catch my attention, but when I saw the cast of this one, I was taken back to another time.

Bounty Hunter was more than I could have asked.....not quite as predictable as most, and with some lessons to be learned. Oh, my gosh, Johnny Mack Brown, Bob Steele! Never understood what a sawed off double barreled shot gun loaded with cannon sized shells could do. Yikes, 3 in one shot! Well enough. I liked it sufficiently to research it. When I found out who his final killer was in real life, it rocked me for a moment. The person who said the actor was too old.....awwww gimmee a break.
