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.

My 397th review: 1/10 Huzzah! One of the greatest drinking games of all time!
3 April 2011 | by (the big screen) – See all my reviews

This isn't just a turkey, it's turkeysaurus, mount turkeyest, the turkeyiana trench, turkey t-rex. One of the absolute stinkiest stinkers of all stinkiness. Absolutely unwatchable excepting as a drinking game. Some suggested rules would be every over-exaggerated use of the close-up - take a drink. Every time you physically cringe at how bad Peter Fonda's acting is- take a drink. Every time a gun goes off with no recoil - take a drink. For every awful awful line uttered by Spirit in perfect SATs English that makes you laugh - take a drink.

Drunk is the only way this might be viewable. If you live in California and has a medical prescription, then this should keep you laughing for about two weeks.

It is rare to see a film that achieves the unique distinction of being truly bad in ALL areas: directing, acting, script, make-up, costuming - but Hawken's? It be that bad.

Deserves cult status.
