Storyline

Alone on "Executioner's Row," Ned Blessing is a haggard, old cowboy and former sheriff. With nothing more than reflections on a life that's been filled with danger and excitement, he marks his time waiting and hoping that the man responsible for his imprisonment makes an appearance before the hangman does. With only a few days left to live, Blessing recounts his unbelievable life story. We meet Ned as a young boy heading west with his father, Anthony. We see the brutal shooting of Ned's father by the notorious Bruto Half-Tongue and Ned's enslavement by the Commancheros, a dangerous band of Mexican outlaws. While in Mexico, Ned meets Crescencio, a healer and visionary who will watch out for Ned the rest of his life. We also meet the beautiful Jilly Blue, the love of Ned's life, and the ruthless Tors Buckner, Ned's worst enemy. With just days between Ned and the noose, Ned has nothing to gain and no time to lose. But as we witness how these characters helped to weave Ned's life together... Written by Echo Bridge Home Entertainment

UNDONE BY ITS LACK OF PURPOSE
6 January 2004 | by (Mountain Mesa, California) – See all my reviews

This is an augmented television pilot, not advertised as being so, with an abrupt ending distressing to a viewer who might be so unfortunate as to still be watching a production insulting to any with a modicum of intelligence, due to a storyline that makes no pretense at logic, rather instead stringing together a structure of episodes each more foolish than that preceding, with essentially no sense of continuity. It would seem that the primary purpose of this affair is to demonstrate the costuming talents of Michael Boyd, whose work is often very effective, but here only grotesque, as surely never were denizens of the Old West so brightly raimented in such an array of heterogeneous colours, with all garments seemingly impervious to even a scantling of soil. Director Peter Werner ("We Were The Mulvaneys") and scriptor William Witliff ("Country"; "Barbarosa") are accomplished craftsmen and it is difficult to accept this clichéd and terminally stupid composition as handiwork from either, a possible explanation being preparation and production interference for what purportedly became a popular television series based upon the lead character from this film, Ned Blessing (Stephen Baldwin). There is innovative camerawork, crisp editing, and some fine players earning credit for their skill at delivering their lines with straight face, but the plot provides nothing in the way of character development or plausible motivation, yet offers perhaps the most protracted and cartoonish scene of meaningless violence ever shot.
