Quotes

Storyteller: Colt 45, single shot.You had to cock it every time you shot. It was called a peacemaker, but I haven't seen much peace that it brought.No, you guys today have that full automatic. Pull the trigger and spray. History's a funny thing. They said Columbus discovered America and the Indians were already here. That's like me telling you that I discovered your car. They call them evil red savages because they didn't give up the car soon enough. One thing about time. No matter how much or how little ...

Good idea badly executed
7 July 2001 | by mfrost71wSee all my reviews

An awful film; badly written, badly acted, cliched, hackneyed, dross. The premise is such a good one and a chance to educate about black cowboys but the film is truly dire. It is a curious mix of a bad 1950's Randolph Scott B movie and a bad 1970's spaghetti western. The villains are cardboard, the flashbacks laughable, the dialogue excruciating.

The deliberate anachronisms (such as 'Victorian' rap singers and modern swear words like "motherf****er"), are irritating to the extreme.

A Frankenstein monster that died on the lab table.
