GREAT!
6 July 2003 | by (Talladega, Alabama) – See all my reviews

I loved this movie. Of course, anything starring Willie Nelson is bound to be FANTASTIC!!! The times were hard, simple but, exciting back in the Old West. No boring days back then. Soon I will be touring the west and hope to be able to make a stop in Luck, Texas (the down Willie built to film this movie). I just wish Willie would make more movies.
