It had been awhile since we watched a good old-fashioned Western flick.
Intrigued by this release, my husband and I snuggled in and watched
this movie one night and really enjoyed it! We immediately loaned it to
my parents who recalled the original and they enjoyed it too.
We all thought that Trace Adkins did an excellent job. The other actors too. What an imposing figure he makes in this movie! We also thought that the acting roles done by Ron Perlman and Victoria Pratt were well done. The editing made the story line jump a couple times but only one really bothered us. Not enough to ruin the movie by any means. Some of the scenery was really beautiful.
If you rent this expecting to see the old Virginian forget it. This a
realistic like simple movie of what it may have been like in some
areas. The act was very good. As for Adkins I have heard of him, never
heard him sing (no singing here) but he was convincing. All acting was
quite good. Ron Pearlman gave his typically excellent performance.
The woman playing the teacher was adequate although her part was limited and the man that played the writer was excellent.
Eight may be a bit high but I don't usually like westerns. It's a simple movie with a simple style. I still don't like country/western music.
I guess I had my hopes and expectations up real high, but to me this
was really disappointing thing to see.
Some scenes and acting feel really awkward at some points. Steve's whiskey burned voice saves some, but does not make this a great western.
I think that I love The Virginian series as much as I hate this.
As just a western - below OK.
As a Virginian - awful.
Don't expect too much with this if you like westerns / The Virginian series.
