My personal opinion of this movie is that it was pretty cheesy, but just because it's not "Hollywood" doesn't make it a bad movie. It had a limited budget, and it's a straight-to-DVD release. The story is typical, sure. The acting is kind of rough. My problem with all the naysayers is that most old western movies weren't a whole lot better. 6 Guns is no 3:10 to Yuma, but like I said... limited budget and resources. The lead parts were likable, but human. The bad guys are mean and terrible, but they are still human. If you rent this movie, don't expect an epic western, just expect a decent way to burn a couple hours. The key to enjoying this movie is to not take it in the same way you would take in a Hollywood blockbuster with a $27 million budget.
