Walken western failure .........
17 January 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Margo Kidder and Christopher Walken star in this slow and talky western. The overall structure is very haphazard, with characters neither explained or developed. To me, "Shoot the Sun Down" seems more like an art house film, than a second rate western. It is loaded with "compelling visions", but hardly any substance. While Walken does get staked to the desert ground and attacked by Vultures, there is really little here of interest. Long boring scenes, like Walken talking to his horse, permeate the film. Even though the theme of searching for Montezuma's gold should have been intriguing, the movie lacks excitement, and for the most part is just plain boring. Not recommended, even for Walken enthusiasts. - MERK
