Storyline

In this tribute to the old time spaghetti westerns with a liberal dose of modern Hong Kong film-making thrown in, Emilio Estevez assumes Clint Eastwood's "man with no name" role. Estevez plays a super-quick gunman on the run from a rancher (Long) and his men out to kill him for killing his son. The gunman gets mixed up with a former Confederate soldier (William Forsythe) who has knowledge of hidden gold. The only trouble is he is also pursued by Union soldiers. When they free a man (Ed Lauter) with part of the map to the gold, they then are also pursued by Spanish soldiers. It all leads to a small Mexican town terrorized by soldiers and led a by a good priest (Joaquim De Almeida) who also has knowledge of the gold. Written by John Sacksteder <Jsack@ka.net>

Cartoonish mayhem in the Old West
6 May 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As a huge fan of the "Young Guns" movies, I was excited when I saw Emilio Estevez once again don a cowboy hat and pick up his six-shooters. I was somehow hoping for "Young Guns III", but instead got a Looney Toons version of "The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly". Except Looney Toons is more entertaining. And believable.

For 94 minutes I watched Emilio flip through the air like an over-caffeinated acrobat, mowing down a slew of bad guys, whether one at a time or 30 on horseback -- single-handedly. There must have been a lot of hidden trampolines on the set.

Emilio's over-the-top sharpshooting and semi-witty one-liners wouldn't have been so bad if I felt any sympathy for his character. Or ANY of the characters. Oh well, I still have my "Young Guns" DVDs.
