To finance his band, he robs a stagecoach, kidnaps a beautiful woman to be sold into prostitution, and steals an army payroll wagon. An aging lawman persuades the governor to parole his brother-in-law, now serving a 20-year prison term for murder, to assist him and his green deputy to destroy the marauders. Written by
Reynolds and Dern back in the saddle with zero support ...........
Here we have two fine actors and that's about it. Burt Reynolds and Bruce Dern are back in the saddle, and given nothing to work with. The villain, David Figlioli, is a cartoon-like character. The script appears to have no direction, as it wanders all over the place, leaving the viewer with questions that are explained along the way only to expand the running time. But by far the biggest negative in "Hard Ground" is the total miscasting of Amy Jo Johnson. Instead of looking, sounding, or acting like a frontier woman, she comes across as if she just stepped out of a designer jeans commercial. Whenever she is on screen, she drags the movie right down to the mat. What you are left with is some nice location photography, and Reynolds and Dern struggling mightily to keep things from falling apart completely. - MERK
