Most of the small weapons used during the shooting scene did not exist at that time, the movie is settled e. g. a Colt 38 Special Police Service weapon (on markets after the turn of the century) several Magnum Type revolvers (S & W .357 Magnum) which did not exist before the 1960ies. Very special are Guererros revolvers, which were simply fantasy weapons: a three barrel Colt Dragoon front, mounted on a Le Mat rear end with the Le Mat 9 shoot cylinder. See more »
Trejo and Rourke fail to carry film through bad plot and pacing
I'm a huge fan of both Trejo and Rourke and seeing them on screen together was a lot of fun. But their star quality charisma sadly fails to lift this movie out of the muck of poor writing and pacing.
The production seems to be about on par with a Sy-Fy channel "original" movie, better than a straight to DVD production but not by much.
The western elements are played for full cartoon caricature stereotype and look decent enough while being obviously anachronistic, there's just no real excitement to the movie at all. It's very standard revenge plot action wannabe without the budget and flash to carry it off. You know everything you need to know in the first 5 minutes of the movie and if you are like me and have seen a lot of action movies you'll even be able to accurately predict many of the set action sequences before they happen.
I would have liked to see a less action oriented flick with the same premise that let Trejo and Rourke's acting chops shine. As it stands the movie is pretty forgettable.
