Entertaining Movie
13 November 2001 | by See all my reviews

Well, I guess that saying that I can't watch more than 5 minutes of westerns (and I watched this one from the start to the end) pretty much says it all... It's not the best movie out there, but it still got me on the seat. The acting is good, I especially liked Haggerty's performance along with Dusenberry's and Blakley was pretty un-appealing. The film's locations are obviously accurate and some places like the miner's camp are pretty nice. The script is not so sofisticated now, but it still manages to make you care for the characters. The only thing I didn't like was the ending and that abrupt meeting with the indians. Check out the gunfights. Bottom line, watch this funny western for a good time, never mind the flaws which won't screw up the movie because of it's positive side.

*I try not to review movies like other people do, which is always comparing for the Oscars and stuff, I judge depending on the entertainment factor.
