Peculiar western
17 August 2013 | by Wizard-8See all my reviews

For years, this Arch Hall Jr. movie was all but impossible to see, but thanks to its copyright not being renewed at the right time, it is now available on budget DVDs. For those wondering if this is as hilariously bad as past Hall movies like "Eegah!" and "Wild Guitar", well, I hate to break the news, but there aren't that many unintended laughs to be found. In fact, much of the movie is more competent than you might think - there is some nice background scenery, a decent musical score, and the events of the movie are treated (mostly) with seriousness. But all the same, the screenplay is kind of a mess. The movie is not content to sit with one or two plot threads, but has several running through, and not all of the plot threads are resolved in a satisfying manner by the end. Also, the low budget is pretty evident at times. The movie is kind of a mess, but at the same time the mess gets you interested and wonder how things will be wrapped up. And the ending will be an unexpected one for many viewers. While I'm kind of hesitant to give this a general recommendation, I do think there are some people who are fans of offbeat cinema that may find it interesting.
