Desert survival Western
12 May 2014 | by (Ohio/PA border) – See all my reviews

"The Gatling Gun" was shot in 1969, but not released in the USA till 1971. It's a cavalry vs. Indians Western focusing on the eponymous weapon with a great cast of familiars -- Guy Stockwell, Robert Fuller, Phil Harris, Woody Strode, Patrick Wayne, John Carradine, Pat Buttram and BarBara Luna (from Star Trek's "Mirror, Mirror") -- highlighted by curvy redhead Judy Jordan, to say the least.

Critics write it off as "routine" and, yes, it is grade-B and comic-booky, but everything clicks and the movie delivers the goods. It's essentially a survival tale of a small group of soldiers and civilians who team-up to survive a desert trek threatened by Two-Knives (Carlos Rivas) and his rogue tribe. If you're a sucker for desert-survival tales (like me), such as "Sands of the Kalahari," "Flight of the Phoenix," "Escape from Zahrain" and "They Came to Cordura," you'll probably appreciate "The Gatling Gun." It's not as good as the first three, but it's more entertaining than the last one.

The trek through the desert features a lot of drama but the movie ends with a bang as the group squares-off against Two-Knives and his gang. Stockwell stands out as the alpha male Army Lieutenant who naturally attracts the babe, whereas Fuller is effective as Private Sneed, done-in by his own lust for filthy lucre.

The film runs 93 minutes and was shot at Eaves Movie Ranch and Ghost Ranch near Sante Fe, New Mexico.

GRADE: B
