Why?, 23 January 2000
Author: culwin

This is a pretty pointless movie. A western about a gunfighter who is hung but somehow comes back to life. He then fights an army of bad guys. These two events are totally unrelated and are the only discernable plot to the movie. Oh yeah, and for some reason this guy can read people's minds through the whole movie. Not much else to say here, except I am wondering how this managed to actually fill 90 whole minutes.
