it's a western " wanna be "
29 July 2015 | by (Egypt) – See all my reviews

I'm happy when I see the writer and director are both the same person. it usually means that not much of original vision has changed, sadly in this case the vision was blurry and dull.

the movie has a western vibe to it so I'll review it Eastwood style the good : nice level of suspense stretched out across the movie with fairly descent acting. most of the characters are well played and identifiable. the visuals and the effects are not bad but could have been better.

the bad : loss of coherence. you find yourself asking repeatedly why did he do that? what's the point of this? why don't they just...etc. this cowboy Hercules from hell and lots of other details are unexplainable.

the ugly : horrible wrapped up ending with a one liner commentary. feels like they ran out of both budget and story and the movie is only an hour and 20 mints long if they added some time to wrap it up properly may be it would have pumped up the overall experience a bit.
