Wow...it didn't suck!
22 June 2010 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

The only reason I watched this film is that I am a sick person who actually likes to occasionally watch terrible films. It's a weird fascination on my part but I love watching films of the worst directors, such as Ed Wood, Arch Hall, Al Adamson and, of course, Larry Buchanan. Buchanan's films, to put it bluntly, were generally an awful mess and the movies displayed little talent in the directing and acting departments. And the scripts managed, somehow, to be a good bit worse. Some of the classic crap-films of Buchanan would include "Zontar, Thing From Venus" and "Mars Needs Women". I was hoping "The Other Side of Bonnie and Clyde" would be yet another terrible (and therefore amusing) movie. Sadly, I have to report that this film was really not bad....but also not very good.

In the film's plus column (at least if you want it to be a good film), the movie is an adequate biography of Bonnie and Clyde and does much to de-glorifying them. That's because the film is told from the perspective of the Texas Ranger credited with their deaths--Frank Hamer. This story is told by using a combination of narration by Burl Ives, old photos and recreations of the actual events. The recreations were generally very poor--with poor acting and reconstructions. However, the rest wasn't bad--though a tad low-key and occasionally dull....but also quite adequate.

The film was not great but totally blew it--failing to suck in a manner you'd expect from Larry Buchanan. Fortunately, this turned out to be an aberration and he returned to his suck-tastic ways in subsequent projects!
