Goofs

In the gambling scene at the Saloon, a close up shot was taken of coins on the table. The coins shown were Lincoln Cents (first minted in 1909) and a Washington Quarter (first minted in 1932). The setting in the movie is at the very best 1880's and the coins should have been the Seated Liberty Quarter minted from 1836 through 1891, and the Indian Head Penny minted from 1859 to 1909.

Quotes

Frank Allison: [Trying to teach Selina, a novice, how to handle a revolver] You need to learn how to draw before you learn how to shoot.
Selina Stevens: I don't need to learn how to draw! I need to learn how to kill a man!

Surprisingly decent genre offering from The Asylum
19 February 2012 | by (Connecticut) – See all my reviews

Not sure what makes this Western genre offering from The Asylum so surprisingly decent. My guess is pure mathematics. When it doesn't have to spend money on special effects from bargain-basement CGI house Tiny Juggernaut, The Asylum can devote those same dollars to scriptwriting, direction and location scenery.

This is essentially a mockbuster of the new "True Grit," with Barry Van Dyke unconvincing in the Jeff Bridges role and cutie pie nobody Sage Mears in the Hailee Steinfeld part, rewritten here as an alcoholic milf who hires Van Dyke to help her seek revenge against the bad guys who raped her and murdered her husband and children.

It's not his fault, but Barry looks so much like his father Dick, it's hard to take him seriously as a rough bounty hunter. You half expect him to burst into "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" in every scene.

And because he must have some sort of contract that says he appears in every third Asylum movie, Greg Evigan shows up as an old, fat, useless sheriff who only serves to remind us baby boomers how old, fat and useless we've gotten since "My Two Dads" too.

It's true the weaponry here is anachronistic and the money shown in the poker game scene is too modern. And yeah, pretty much every cowboy in this movie rides his horse like it's the first time he's ever been on one. But really, even the most authentic of Westerns have always been revisionist fantasies. The Asylum isn't asking too much when requiring we take this one with an extra grain of salt.

Why? Because ultimately, it works. For some reason, "6 Guns" works as a whole to create a harmless cowboy flick that's better than you would expect from the king of direct-to-DVD cheese. After all, this is the company that gave us "Mega Shark vs Giant Octopus," so I think we need to count the few blessings The Asylum throws us.
