I was generous giving this a "2"
22 December 2005 | by (Redding Ca) – See all my reviews

While I wouldn't quite put it in the Ed Wood category, this western is pretty much inept. Ted Wells may have been OK as a silent actor, but here he comes across as so wooden as to almost give the viewer splinters. Jimmy Aubrey as Ptomaine Pete is even worse, the most over the top performance by any cowboy sidekick! As for that, the movie has nothing going for it, the action is boring and fake. Repeated scenes of the "posse" passing the same billboard several times don't help either. However if you have 55 minutes of your life you want throw away (remember, you'll never get them back), then this may be OK enough to occupy those minutes.
