Storyline

In a future where society has come full circle and man lives by the code of the guns at his side, a fugitive, a vengeful son, a killer, and a servant stand in a four-way face-off from which only one man can walk away. To the east lies seven boomtowns connected by railroad, and to the west is a Utopian community that cowers in fear of the outside world. Dividing these two areas is an arid stretch of desert known only as "The Badlands." Now, these four gunmen stand facing one another with their fingers on their triggers, their fates won't be known until the gun smoke clears. Written by Jason Buchanan

An Old School Western, With A New School Flare
8 September 2008 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Six Reason's Why is an echo of earlier creations of both Sergio Leone and Sam Peckinpah, if on a smaller scale. If you like these filmmakers, chances are you will appreciate SRW. If you don't know these filmmakers, its still definitely worth a look for its layered storytelling, and new take on old school westerns.

After viewing the film, I was quite impressed, knowing that this film was shot with a shoe-string budget, didn't really cross my mind while I was watching it. That in itself is a feat. Also working with relatively unknown actors (aside from Feore, who's scenes are short but sweet), one might think that without a lightening pace, interest could fade. It doesn't. In fact it builds throughout the film as each character's pasts and motives come to light. Some are explained more than others, which leaves some questions to be asked, but in a good way, a la the man with no name. The story is told in a Tarantino-esquire, non linear format that leaves the viewer hanging, and the slow build to the inevitable showdown is done with sharp stylized dialogue, splashes of violence and some beautiful eye candy shots.

This film is not for the impatient, but if you stick with it, you will find it rewarding with its post-apocalyptic hinted setting, cryptic storytelling and an outcome that will leave you wanting to know more about the story, after the film ends. A great little indie film. Qudos to the Bros Campagna, looking forward to see what comes next.
