Do they make ’em all so amazing up in Canada? Cuz if there’s more like Paul Gross up north, I’m on my way... That one above is from H20. This one below is from Passchendaele. I’ll review both eventually. Gunless, just out on DVD in Canada, is a hoot. I’ll get a review of that up soon, too: Too bad Eastwick didn’t last -- it was worth gazing at just for Gross: »

The other day I started the Inglorious Basterds Blu-ray at a friends place and was greeted by an extra-hairy, gunslinging Paul Gross in a trailer for the upcoming Canadian comedy Gunless.* It's the story of -- get this -- a gunslinger who calls out a surly blacksmith (played by Tyler Mane, the new Michael Myers), only to find out that the town doesn't have one working pistol for the showdown.

The last time we saw Paul Gross he was behind the camera directing mayhem in the trenches of the Wwi battle of Passchendaele. Now, in Gunless, an upcoming Canadian riff on the Western, he plays a gunman who is perplexed by the fact that no one in seems to understand or appreciate the brutal code of the American Wild West anymore.
Honestly, like most Canadian comedies, Gunless could be interesting and it could be daft, but it's got a great supporting cast in Callum Keith Rennie, Sienna Guillory, Dustin Milligan and Tyler Mane and the director, William Phillips, second unit directed on Vincenzo Natali's Cypher, so I'm willing to give it a chance.
When notorious American gunslinger, The Montana Kid, staggers into the tiny Canadian hamlet of Barclay’s Brush, life for the town’s 17 inhabitants is about to get exciting. The Kid immediately gets into an unfortunate altercation with Jack, »
