A truly awful film, 2 July 2010
Author: shattenjager777 from Saint Paul, Minnesota

There is little redeeming about this film.

The story is weak and uninteresting. Without giving any spoilers, a retired old bounty hunter-turned-rancher comes out of retirement to save his ranch with a quick, one-time job and ends up in over his head. There is not a surprise to be had and while the film runs at just over 90 minutes, that little set up is already stretched beyond the breaking point long before the end.

The characters, one and all, are one-dimensional stock characters. They range from the weathered, drunken old man called out of retirement to go back to the job he hates but knows how to perform (Tommy) to the comic relief of the idiotic young sidekick (Will) to the unfeeling, perverted saloon owner (Jake).

It's also loaded with attempts at comedy that are universally both juvenile and clichéd. There is no intentional comedy here that works.

The acting, even though the actors have little to do, is awful. Tommy Hill gives a reasonable performance as Tommy Hill and Marlene Perez is fine in a very small and simple part, but everyone else is downright awful. The worst offender is Bill Wise (ironically, the only one of this bunch with any kind of resume, holding 35 credits on the IMDb before this release), who mugs for the camera as though he is some sort of irresistibly charming comic and doesn't even bother to try to act. But he's not alone: Sue Rock is frighteningly bad--obviously checking to make sure she's at the proper cleavage level on a regular basis and giving no performance; Robert Graham is absolutely laughable in his attempt to command the screen and appear evil; and Eric Perry seems to be holding in his laughter from start to finish.

The sets are laughably fake, looking like a high school theater's attempt at an old west set. Much of the "wood" is all brand new, unscratched, un-cracked, and some of it does not even have much grain to it (and I have a sneaking suspicion that much of it was not actually wood). The trim colors on the buildings are too bright and distracting (not to mention not befitting of the era). The nature shots are mostly of a lush, forest-covered area that absolutely does not evoke the Old West.

The gunfight sequences are some of the most unintentionally hilarious things ever filmed--loaded with people who stand five feet away from the "heroes" but can't see them or miss them repeatedly and repeat after repeat of the same shot.

The lighting is all attempting to mimic natural lighting instead of trying to heighten anything dramatically, and it even often fails to do that, leading to shadows where they are inappropriate both realistically and dramatically and strange coloring that means absolutely nothing.

The music completes the picture with a mix of western clichés that are never even appropriate to the situation (i.e., there is chase music during a gunfight or comedic music during "emotional" scenes). In essence, it's a microcosm of what a mess the entire film is.

All told, this film does not even meet minimum standards of professionalism that we expect from any movie. Beyond that, it's a tangle of clichés, bad jokes, horrible acting, awful music and poor visual effects. To be avoided.
