a western
18 January 2019 | by JeliosjeliosSee all my reviews

A nice western.

It's far from one of the best western but it's nice. Everything of a western is in this movie. cowboys, gunfhight, rifles, indians, wars,...and some legendary western characters like Buffalo bill cody, calamity jane, custer,.. that'is far from their historical life. but it'ss ok to find this characters in this movies.

And you have Leslie Nielsen!!

enjoy it
