Ugh!
2 January 2006 | by (Vancouver) – See all my reviews

Almost the worst western you'll ever see, 'Trouble At Melody Mesa' features one of those "Who killed my brother?" plots so prevalent in westerns and basically slows it down to a near crawl with boring acting, an indecipherable plot and plodding action sequences. First, it's hard to tell who the real lead is, as there seems to be 2 main male protagonists here, both slow and oddly unattractive. The antagonist, who of course is the suspicious bad guy, isn't that bad, as if he knows he's got to be the one to rise above this mess. There is a love interest too. Lorraine Mickie. Now, I have no idea of who this person is, but I have to say that this is probably one of the worst performances I have EVER seen. Oh, god, she was so BAD. She gives Diane Mahree's performance in 'Manos, Hands Of Fate' some serious competition. Now, with a title like "Trouble at Melody Mesa" you'd expect some music right? Well, there IS country music performed, but it's played so lifeless and stilted. Like what was up with that? Also, if anyone can explain the ending to me, I'd be most grateful.
