It's Deadwood - With Zombies! ...... NOT!!
1 November 2011 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

Once upon a time, when video stores first started to appear, each weekend I would go and rent 5 or 6 movies that I'd never seen before. Sometimes they were crap but sometimes I would unearth quite a gem. Eventually I got to the point where I would rent a movie because of who was in it, who it was directed by or even because of the studio that released it, knowing that I had a decent chance of getting something watchable at least.

The one thing that would ALWAYS steer me AWAY from a movie though, was if the description/synopsis on the back concentrated on the soundtrack, the special effects, or a car chase/shootout etc; instead of the story. That was a big no no and the case went back on the shelf.

The same is still true today when it comes to the older movies, but for the more recent ones I've found that gushing reviews on the cover from generally nondescript websites is the modern day warning sign that a movie is a woeful piece of rubbish. (I've even seen a movie with the quote "Brilliant! A must see!!" IMDb.com Where the only reviews are from Joe Public)

This one has two! So take heed. It's a very cheap, very badly acted waste of time that seems to have been put together by a bunch of Wild West theme park employees during their lunch break. It's not even bad enough to be funny.

1/10 but only because we can't give 0
