FINALLY...Someone Shows Another Face Of The West...
11 November 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As opposed to the whiny, spoiled brats who want only Transformers, GI Joe, and HUGE budget films devoid of heart and message other than "OH, LOOK at the BIG explosions and big boobs", I can see the true beauty and merit in this production. It is a low budget film, but the story is important, the actors are sincere, and we can see a vision of a man fighting for what he believes is right. The fact that this man is black is unimportant to the message, but important to the genre. When has anyone other than Mel Brooks shown a Western with a main character who is black? A man who ACTUALLY tore his shackles and went on to greatness...a man surging forward against prejudice, hatred, and bigotry in a time when his skin color relegated him to life as a second class citizen. Ponderous' film may lack a huge budget, but it does not lack in honesty, heart, and the ability to tell a story that has been FAR TOO LONG relegated to the same second class status as it's main character. This was a story that needed to be told, and apparently Ponderous was the only one with the courage to tell it. Bravo...and please tell us more.
