a blood soaked modern western
11 December 2011 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

a hard movie to find, it has taken me 25 years to see this. in Australia this little gem barely got a release back in the day it came and went like most Aussie flicks in a blink of an eye it was gone. and not until now did i see it again at a market place lost among the unwanted classics of a bygone era.

anyway put this movie on your to do list. if you like good action and a modern western theme that goes for the throat, this is for you. don't let the age of this movie stop you it not that bad. in fact it a hoot, it sits on the verge of exploitation movie or as we call it ozplotation. and thats the best place too sit.

tim burstall may not have been the best of our director but he was one of our first to put us on the map.with good solid fun films.and this was no exception.great cast and crew. and the great David eggley behind the lenes,just have a look at his film log it reads full of great looking films. anyway if you can find this gem and it wont be easy ,get it, watch it and enjoy, i did.
