Hired Gun
11 October 2009 | by (California, United States) – See all my reviews

I cannot agree with the first reviewer of "Hired Gun". In an time when most films we see are either vampire films or teen slasher films, it is refreshing to see a good action film. Shane Wood is in good form as the titular gunman, despite an injured ankle. Why do I think this film is excellent? It is a welcome change from the run of the mill zombie film. It has a purpose, a story arc, and it has heart. It also has Shane Wood and Michael Madsen, a madman to be sure, without whom the film would not have been possible. Thumbs up to Shane Wood, and I hope he continues with a successful acting career. Few actors work harder at it. He is dedicated, well-prepared, and a workout fanatic. He cares about his work and his family, as well. All though he has been working in film for a while, as stunt man and a special effects man, this acting gig should be a new beginning for Shane; one that I hope will be a fruitful one.
