A Good Western With Excitement
24 January 2013 | by (Mechanicsburg, PA) – See all my reviews

Hey folks,

The four Desperado films from the late 1980s really are pretty good oaters, and they are a lot more exciting than many of the ones I enjoyed as a youth. Alex McArthur's Duell McCall is exciting to watch as the good "bad guy," and Richard Farnsworth is also always a safe bet to create a credible character. McCall's love interest, Nora (played by Lise Cutter), is here once again and, as ever, is very easy on the eyes.

There have been very few reviews of the four films, and the forum boards for them have also had little written there. There are always negative comments made about any film, but these are pretty good westerns, and I would think more folks would be finding and reporting the same message.

Best wishes, Dave Wile
