After seeing this film I'm reminded of Matt Stone and Trey Parker's first film "Cannibal he Musical". Not because the subject matter is in any way similar, but the feel, setup and overall production is quite close. Essentially, it's a low budget film that sets out to tell a story many people are already familiar with. Is it a Hollywood blockbuster? No, but it never tries to be. It's simple, quaint, and if you go into it with the right mindset can be very entertaining. I fear that many movie goers might expect "3:10 to Yuma" or "True Grit". But realistically this film is on a different level. It's entertaining for all ages and can be enjoyed by western film buffs. But just bear in mind it's not a John Wayne film.
