Trivia

The exterior of the "Alamo" - first visible just before the dinner scene in which Buster Keaton's "The General" (1926) is playing in the background - is a former movie theater in Victorville, California once called the La Mesa Theater. Also, the streets surrounding that building were featured prominently in the motorcycle chase scene in "Electra Glide in Blue" (1973), which starred Robert Blake. See more »

Young William 'Buddy' Heckum: I told him to make it in three parts. For you, me, and Jakey.
Gabriel Heckum: Smart.
Young William 'Buddy' Heckum: Jakey gets the extra dollar, 'cause he's the youngest.
Gabriel Heckum: Well, that he is.

A film with good sponsors but I just don't get it...
16 December 2015 | by See all my reviews

I don't get it. This movie has some high levels supporters (such as James Cameron) praising the movie, yet I can't see in any way how they are able to back it up. We have here a film centring round two brothers, who are caught in the middle of a corruption ring. One brother is slow witted and is being used whilst the other is trapped in his efforts to help his brother.

It's about brotherhood, loyalty, blood etc etc. The problem is that it just isn't gripping. The storyline is mostly poor and nothing complex, but the underlying themes need something challenging. It's absent here.

The main leads are fair enough and not big names, working hard with the material in front of them, but they can little save this.

The cinematography is beautiful and so is the natural scenery, but that's as good as it gets.

Not by any means the poorest film of late, but one that I can't seem to like. If it wasn't for the major sponsors of this film it likely would never have got any of the attention it ever did.
