Cooler than Sharon Stone
12 April 2001 | by See all my reviews

I thought this movie, while short and simple, still kicked a lot of ass. Sam Elliot is the man, and the supporting cast works well also. I never saw the 1963 "The Quick and the Dead", and while I enjoyed the 1995 movie of the same name, with Sharon Stone, I thought this version was much better.
