Quotes

Gus McGreevey: Every condemned man gets a last request. What's yours gonna be?
Sam Danville: Well, I wouldn't mind if they'd built that gallows a little higher. I'd prefer it if my neck snapped straight off instead of strangling slow-like. There's no dignity in a death like that.
Gus McGreevey: Ask for a cigar.
Sam Danville: Hmm, why's that?
Gus McGreevey: The sheriff brings them in special and hates having to share, even with a dying man.
Sam Danville: Never did kind to smoking. Nearly choked me to death the first time I tried.
Gus McGreevey: Death by cigar. Sure beats a noose.

worth a view
13 June 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Interesting flick. Original plot line. Mediorce cgi. James Marsters (Spike, Buffy the vampire series) plays the lead character in a sci/western about invading aliens. Faced with certain death, Marsters, (Sam) chooses to fight the alien invasion with his own resourses.

I truly wish that the Canadian company that produced this had invested the money to make this film correctly. The actors have nothing to apologize for, they did the best with a small budget.

This film is worth a watch. Pay attention to the acting of the actress playing the bounty hunter Rose. Other than Marsters, she is one to watch.
