Storyline

In the vein of traditional westerns such as 'High Noon,' comes 'Blue Eyes,' nickname of Johnny Rios, the most sadistic outlaw in south Texas. After being captured in a foiled bank robbery in the sleepy town of Wardlaw, the courageous Sheriff, Bob Gambol, awaits the vicious outlaw's family who has given him twenty-four hours to release their brother or else. Now it's good vs. evil as one man has to choose between honor and the annihilation of a town. Written by Chuck Walker

Surprisingly Good Latter Day B-Western
2 February 2010 | by (The Lonesome Prairie) – See all my reviews

Small town sheriff Michael Gregory jails really nasty killer John Castellanos, but has to deal with the outlaw's murderous brothers and his own town's indifference to the impending showdown.

An entertaining little High Noon/Rio Bravo wannabe, this has a decent, old-fashioned script reminiscent of the westerns of the 1950's. I personally could have done without the subplot involving the town's whore-mongering mayor though!

There's a few technical flaws involving seemingly poor equipment and/or a bad tape-to-film transfer, that lead to some choppy movements and a few badly lit interiors. Still, it's well directed with good camera placement and excellent performances by Gregory and especially Castellanos.

It's also pretty interesting to see Blazing Saddles' Burton Gilliam (you'd recognize him if you saw him) as a brain damaged old Confederate soldier, doing what appears to be an impression of Slim Pickens!

This is definitely worth checking out. I'd like to see what writer/director Chuck Walker could do with a few dollars behind him.
