Fun And Colorful Comedic Adventure
27 December 2009 | by FightingWesternerSee all my reviews

Bumbling Sinbad sets out to avenge the murder of his parents years earlier by villainous railroad boss James Coburn. Failing miserably the first time around, he learns to fight, shoot, and survive from mountain man Burt Reynolds and notorious bandit Ernie Hudson, before taking on Coburn a second time.

Winning performances by the endlessly glib Sinbad and scene-stealers Reynolds and A. Martinez, along with some genuinely funny moments and some good action, make for a truly entertaining movie that surprisingly has a lot to say about friendship and loyalty.

The great all-star cast also includes Gregory Hines and Hal Williams. There's great chemistry at work here. Also, look fast for old-time black cowboy star Herb Jeffries in a non-speaking background role.

I really wish HBO Films were still making good movies like this!
