When Big Jake shoots the wounded bandit from the shower cabin, the guy growls in pain, drops his pistol and falls backwards, but there is not one visible wound or even a drop of blood on his body. See more »
First I have to say that I am a huge JW fan. In this film JW is his classic Kick A** self. There is some sentimental stuff in here, about the old man's relationship with his grown sons. Basically it is good old John Wayne Action. When the bad guys get the drop on him, all you can think is "Big mistake" This film is set in the early 1900s. There is an interesting parallel between the passing of the baton from one generation to the next (Jake and his grown sons) and the passing of technology. We see new fangled weapons and a motor car. (Naturally Jake rejects these)
Finally: You got to love the idea of Big Jake owning a dog named ..... DOG.
