Avoid at all Costs
31 January 2005 | by (Kentucky) – See all my reviews

I'll be brief: There's nothing good about this movie-if you can actually classify it as a movie; it's like a montage of poor reenactments of scenes from other Westerns. It looks like the producer saw the armored wagon from John Waynes's "The War Wagen" sitting around gathering dust in a studio garage and decided to film a bunch of extra's watching it blow up. Note I said "watching" because it blows up when a small log full of powder swings down on a rope and hits it. Add in the rainstorm in the canyon, (the one where the DP failed to notice a patch of sunlight showing on the edge of the frame), shake out the cheapest looking avalanche sequence since "Sky King", mix in a lot of atrocious acting and matching dialogue that can only aspire to comic book quality, and edit into oblivion.

Nothing exciting, nothing remotely interesting (except Richard Farmsworth's embarrassed presence-hopefully he was well paid). Blech.
