What to Expect: Legend of DarkHorse County, 5 June 2014
Author: Jim Logan from United States

Why You Might Like It: I can go on and on about the good things in this film and why most viewers will enjoy it. It has an outstanding cameos that play their parts well, the directing and cinematography are solid, and the story is something to marvel. This is an excellent film for an indie low budget that I highly recommend.

Why You Might Not Like It: It does run a bit short, so some movie-goers might think that they needed more time to make it a movie, but I don't think this movie will lose anyone's interest. The first half of the movie you may get frustrated with "where is this going syndrome" but pretty shots held me in my seat enough to get a reward at the end that it went somewhere.

Acting/Casting: 9.5* - As mentioned, the casting and acting is outstanding. Lee Majors and Michael Biehn give a great performance just would like to have seen more of them. The indie actors are downright creepy and plays their part to a tee.

Directing/Cinematography/Technical: 7.5* - Let me just say that there is room for improvement for sure but a lot of nice spots. The editing in this movie is gripping and pulls the viewer in from start to finish. I can't say enough about all of the small things that go into making the atmosphere in the movie amazing (the choice of settings, the buildings, lighting, etc.)

Plot/Characters: 8.5* - This is arguably one of the better abduction/kidnapping stories that I have seen on a low budget level. On this subject matter most indie films seem to fall into the trap of using gore for shock factor not for story content. If you are looking for a slice and dicer you will be disappointed with Legends. The plot is deep and has many layers that keep the viewer guessing all the way up until the very end but not with blood splats. There is no doubt that the story plays a huge role in the final product that you see on the screen.

Entertainment Value: 8.0* - It keeps you guessing throughout and on the edge of your seat from start to finish. Get out and see it.
