Quotes

[first lines]
Noel Hickman: [voice-over] I don't know who started all this talk about good always being mixed up with bad, and bad with good. All I know is, when people are alone, when there's no law to see to it that they got to stand inside the bounds; then they're either all good or all bad. And it's a tough thing for a boy to find out that his pa is one of the bad.

A poor western... especially if you dislike westerns
29 October 2012 | by (Victoria, BC) – See all my reviews

Westerns were really out of fashion when director Charles B. Pierce made this one, so you have to admire him for putting so much effort into making it. Unfortunately, that's about the nicest thing I can say about "Hawken's Breed". The other user comments who wrote negative things about this movie were right about its bad quality. It's as slow as molasses, with most of what happens in the first half being completely unnecessary, except maybe to pad out the very thin story. The movie also shows some signs that it was a troubled production, with excessive use of narration used to try and explain things (and sometimes contradicting what we see and hear from the characters!) Even Guido and Maurizio De Angelis (what are they doing on an American film?) can't liven things up with their musical score, which is far from their best work. If there is anything else positive to say about the movie besides trying to resurrect a dead genre, it's that it provided work for Peter Fonda during a lean period for him.
