A Horrible Mix
13 June 2007 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

The Bull of the West which I saw under the title of Hot Lead is a mix of about three shows from The Virginian television series, spliced together and released in the overseas market as a feature film.

Guys like George Kennedy, Charles Bronson and Brian Keith are all featured in separate stories that get illogically edited together to form a most incoherent motion picture. I suppose it was just a cheap attempt to capitalize on a lot of movie names. It was one cheap film to make since all that was involved was editing.

Unless you are either a stargazer, a fan of The Virginian or like all the guest stars in general, I'd pass this one by. Run do not walk to the remote to change channels when it's one.
