Quotes

Sheriff Lloyd Grover: I didn't know you had any dealing with the Indians.
Tom Rile: You still don't know. That's what I pay you for...not to know anything.
Sheriff Lloyd Grover: What is it, Tom? Are you selling the Apaches whiskey or guns?
Tom Rile: You better put that blindfold back on.
Sheriff Lloyd Grover: It's no wonder you got so many gunslingers working for you.

Pretty dismal effort
27 June 2016 | by (Washington) – See all my reviews

With a well known cast, one would have hoped this would have at least reached the level of a B+ Western. Unfortunately, it struggled to make it to the B- range. The problems were myriad: a very standard plot, a bad musical score that grated, actors with no spark, and a final battle scene that was the antithesis of exciting. Without giving any spoilers, the plot involved various characters with hidden agendas all having converged on an Arizona town in the closing stages of the Civil War. Cowboys, Indians, Rebs, and Unionists all thrown together could have had a bit of life but here, the mix had no yeast and didn't rise. What should have been a climactic battle scene was a visual humor feast. The renegade Indians sat on their horses like targets at a Coney Island arcade but this was countered by townsmen not using any cover as they threw lead. In the usual B-Western tradition, a hero with a 6-gun was much more deadly than a Star Trek red-shirter with a rifle. All in all, it was depressing seeing these actors reduced to showing up for work in an effort like this one.
