One of the better westerns made
16 June 1999 | by helpless_dancerSee all my reviews

This was a good shoot-em-up western about a boy who was traumatized around the age of 10 by witnessing his father being murdered. He took the name Jack Slade and became a criminal, but never murdered anyone - sort of a likeable bad guy. He became one of the fastest guns in the west. This film had one of my favorite bad guys in it, Lee Van Cleef. This man just looks evil. He gave one of my favorite one liners in all of filmdom, "that's fast enough". You'll have to see the film to get that one in context, which is not a bad idea. Go see it.
