Shelly Novack steals the show
3 February 2001 | by (New Orleans, Louisiana) – See all my reviews

This is an interesting film for many reasons; a good script, and although some of the characters are familiar the story angle is unusual; the hero is an insecure man who isn't sure he's still "got it". There's also a terrific cast of veteran performers (as well as one superstar-to-be), but surprisingly the acting honours (in my opinion, anyway) go to a lesser-known, the late Shelly Novack. Very simply stated, Novack steals the show as the cocky gunslinger, "Pardo". This type of character - the strutting young gunfighter who's always trying to provoke authority figures into fights - is almost a western stereotype, but Novack makes it seem fresh and vital, and gives much propulsion to the story as it unfolds.
