Ace adj : of first rank or quality
14 January 2003 | by (Broken Bow, Oklahoma) – See all my reviews

Didn't live up to the dictionary definition. I have seen Willie Nelson do a good job in a film or two, but this was one of his wooden indian episodes. I would say he needs to stick with singing, but since he falls short in that area also I'll simply claim he needs to stay with song writing. It was obvious early on who the killer was, and even more apparent where the story would end as Kris and crew ran about excitedly chasing the "elusive serial murderer" while keeping a wary eye on the wily Nelson who played a lovable criminal [innocent, of course]. Pass this one by and do something useful with your time. I should have.
