Trivia

Immediately before Sheriff Langford is summoned because the gallows is on fire, he is playing chess with himself using a set identical to the iconic Lewis Chessmen, which were discovered in 1831 on the isle of Lewis west of Scotland. They are made of walrus ivory and are thought to date to the seventh century and are in the collection of the British Museum. See more »

Goofs

Jake's paint horse changes throughout the movie. There are at least three paints that he uses. When the little boy is rescued by Jake and Emmett, the horse's rump coloring changes from the time the little boy looks down to Jake and when he jumps from the roof top to land on the horse. See more »

Rip roaring, hard riding, gun twirling Western
21 July 2000 | by Cajun-4See all my reviews

Westerns are hard to come by these days so make the most of this; it's a good one. I wouldn't go so far as to call it a spoof but it certainly doesn't take itself too seriously,best not to worry about trying to follow the plot just go along with the roller coaster ride. There's lots of hard riding, fancy shooting and athleticism by our worthy heroes as they face off with the usually overweight and constantly smiling villains who don't quite twirl their moustaches but come close. The heroine is rather insipid but this is an action picture and the romance doesn't get in the way too much. It all goes on a little too long but there's lots of fun to be had along the way.
