Masterfully fun. I went from laughing to crying to cheering. Don't miss this bronco.
30 December 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am not much of a communicator but I hope to share what a thrill this movie is. I haven't seen the movie in I guess 20 years or so but I still get a thrill remembering it.. From the Desperado theme to Duell's smile to Nora's passion for her man...it is one wild ride from beginning to end. Heart retching makes your heart-ache Romance, intrigue, comedy I cannot convey the passion in this play. I just can't do it justice. One theme of the Westerns I love and admire is strong men and the strong women they love.... Although it is Duell's movie Nora comes on strong with quite a blast It's rock and roll with the beauty of ballet. Although I love our friends in Canada don't let some disgruntled Canadian dissuade you from this great fun. This movie is not to be missed.
