Better than average Oater
2 September 2007 | by (Sacramento, CA) – See all my reviews

OK? Who besides James Gammon and Patrick Bergin are in this film? Who else do you know? The three principles are faces with no names besides those flashing by in the credits. They're definitely not cutie-pies and the roles they bring to the screen are not your typical Western female hero. One, Maxine (Suzanne Andrews), is a macha-hero-type but the other two, Claire (Judith Burnett), an ex-school marm with a drinking problem married to an abusive bum and Bridgett (Lissa Negrin)is an ex-hooker who actually loves her husband, Billie. These three ladies see their husbands hanged and then chased by everyone else in the picture because they are believed to know where the loot is buried. We see them chased by a drunken, incompetent posse, two bounty hunters, a faux preacher and his gang and then, some Native Americans. While this is not a film to keep you on the edge of your seat, it is an evening's worth of entertainment which goes beyond the sterile iconic old Westerns I and all the other kids of my generation grew up on. All in all, it's better than the average oater.
