Uranium isn't explosive and can't be ignited by dynamite. Uranium-233 will "go supercritical" and result in a nuclear explosion if more than about 33 pounds are formed into a perfect sphere (more is needed if it is shaped differently. Other isotopes of Uranium have even larger critical masses. Since the Uranium in the boxes hadn't already exploded, they must not have contained the critical mass of uranium and blowing the boxes up with dynamite would only have scattered the uranium making it less likely to explode.

Every condemned man gets a last request. What's yours gonna be?
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.
Ask for a cigar.
Hmm, why's that?
The sheriff brings them in special and hates having to share, even with a dying man.
Never did kind to smoking. Nearly choked me to death the first time I tried.
Death by cigar. Sure beats a noose.

It's more difficult to review a movie that is abysmal than wonderful because there's just so much that's bad it's hard to decide how to begin. The dialog was infantile. Not only was the writing cliché and trite, it was obvious that the writer had never seen a western let alone ever heard anyone who actually spoke with an authentic western accent and dialect. Possibly the most horrid aspect of this terrible writing took the form of the character "Rose" whose ludicrous dialog mixed with laughable acting made for a character of pure comedy, but it wasn't supposed to be funny.
The story line was sophomoric, moronic even. The plot was as thin as tissue and weaker than a ghost town's watered down whiskey. The timing of the expository statements were so in-your-face that one watching could only believe that the writer had the impression that everyone in the audience was incapable of understanding anything over second grade information. Saying it was insulting is an insult to the word insulting.
The guns were a horrible anachronism. The style if six shooters used in the movie wasn't in place in the "Wild West". The only consolation is that the guns matched era of the dialog which is modern, though stupid.
This movie is the clearest case of "let's make money as quickly as possible" I've ever seen. Utter crap. I wouldn't have finished watching it but my eyes were glued to the screen as if I were watching a horrible accident on TV and couldn't look away.
