During the first week of production the film's star (Shane Daniel Wood) hurt his ankle while shooting a scene. After the scene Shane showed Director Brad Jurjens an ankle that had swollen to twice its size. Knowing with the tight budget a medical leave could scrap the project altogether, Shane waited till after wrap, three weeks later (still doing all his own stunts) to see a doctor and a MRI showed multiple fractures.

This is a typical offensive Hollywood PC fantasy. The White Man is bad, America caused terrorism by winning WWII, the average southerner drives a truck and likes to shoot harmless "undocumented workers", the Police and FBI are corrupt, you get the idea. The way women are portrayed is also offensive, as they are victimized by, you guessed it, the white man.
The sad part about it was that a certain small percentage of people want to think this is accurate.
A movie should be entertaining. Hired Gun failed at that, but then I think it was mainly trying to reinforce a left coast view. The only reason I didn't give it a 1 is that it had one or two amusing action scenes. However, I wish I didn't rent it. It is not worth watching, even for free. I turned it off in disgust. This could have been made by a clueless left wing college professor. Maybe it was.
