As a kid, I grew up watching Italian Westerns, what they called a "spaghetti western," many which boasted a star or two and featured weird, twisty, nonsensical endings. This ran like that, with some big names, off color characters, and cliché after cliché.
The characters are hard to know in the beginning, and harder to like, but as the story progresses, the characters are ingratiated to the audience, and the story makes more sense the further in you get.
I'm not saying that made the movie good because that would be a lie. This movie isn't good. It is mildly entertaining, at best, with little to no moral center, but for a movie about a gambler and a conman, it wasn't horrid.
Although, if you've watched the Trinity movies (which serve as prequels to this), you will enjoy it all the more.
It rates a 4.6/10 from...
