a western which starts well but goes nowhere
31 January 2005 | by (villeurbanne, france) – See all my reviews

Take William Holden, Ernest Borgnine, Susan Hayward and others strong actors, put them in the Wild West with a story of revenge and anger... With any director you should have a good western. But not with Daniel Mann: the poor soul handles his camera like if it was nine pound hammer, the script goes absolutely nowhere, trying to follow all the usual western movies tracks, including an appalling eyebrow to spaghetti western and Holden seems so tired and uninterested that you will be taking very hard not to close your eyes and take a good nap. The only bright (and moving) but very short scenes are when Holden and Hayward met together. Susan we miss you!
