Dwight Yoakam and Bo Hopkins fans pay attention .......
20 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Painted Hero" is a rodeo movie with some intrigue and a murder. The acting, especially by Dwight Yoakam and Bo Hopkins is totally acceptable. Unfortunately the film has several flaws that detract. First, certain scenes seem to go on forever. Some strategic trimming would have helped. As is the movie takes way too long getting to a very underwhelming conclusion. Certain parts of "Painted Hero" are left unexplained so there is a feeling throughout that the story should have been better developed. At 105 minutes, things drag considerably, especially in the middle section. Nevertheless, this is recommended for fans of Yoakam and Hopkins. - MERK
