kind of boring
15 February 2004 | by ethylesterSee all my reviews

I could easily not have watched this movie and been fine. Take it or leave it.

Cheezy western flick with pretty stereotypical characters. More like a Disney movie than anything else. It is about a guy, who everyone thinks is Billy The Kid, who can shoot really fast. People bet on him and force him to duel with other guys like Wild Bill Hiccock. He makes friends with some Natives because he is also trying to mine for gold. He finds out that his father is an Indian Chief. But he doesn't care and goes on shooting people. It's a pretty boring story.

Not recommended unless you love Arch Hall Jr. and shots of his manly cleft chin. Good movie to fall asleep to.
