The only thing worthwhile about this was Maria Ortiz.
This semi-professional Civil War soap opera is watchable, but mundane. There are some extremely distracting technical blunders, like camera sounds audible from certain positions, and the battle scenes are yawners. The script serves up many of the stock characters and situations from what must have been a Civil War enthusiast's tedious vanity press novel, in often disjointed fashion. The photogenic Maria Ortiz has the spiciest role as the conniving Cajun maid, and reveals promising acting potential. She barely outshines the actress playing Miles "Tarzan" O'Keefe's fleeting romantic interest; these two women display more professional-quality skills than the more widely-credited O'Keefe and one-time B-queen Michelle Bauer (as an old maid sister). The DVD is unfortunately saddled with a trailer for something called "Massacre," which is worth seeing once merely for its astounding badness. Unfortunately, the 10 minute+ preview cannot be bypassed...
