Western with a twist
7 August 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Cherokee Kid is a hoot from beginning to end with a little Burt Reynolds thrown in for good measure. A western told in flashback with narration by Jaun Cortina (A Martinez is hilarious in this over the top performance), you learn the story of Isaiah Turner from boy on the run from the land grabbing railroad tycoon (James Coburn) who murdered his mother to the man known as The Cherokee Kid, a gunfighter out for revenge and hunted by The Undertaker(Gregory Hines). He lives with Otter Bob (Burt Reynolds is almost unrecognizable but gives a great performance) learning the ways of the mountain man until he Bob is murdered by the men on Turner's trail. Isaiah then spends time in jail with Nat Love until they are sprung by Cortina and Isaiah follows Nat back to his hideout. There he learns to ride and shoot and earns the name The Cherokee Kid. He gains fame taking out Bloomington's banks and ends up getting killed in a shoot out with The Undertaker. The ending is a nice surprise with a very nicely choreographed gunfight. I enjoyed it very much and we pull it out of the collection to watch on a regular basis.
