Storyline

When the members of a caravan of pioneers find a daisy growing in the middle of the desert they decide to stop there and to build their town on this very spot. Houses soon spring up like mushrooms, immediately followed by a bank, a saloon, a prison, etc: Daisy Town is born. Unfortunately a city does not go without its bad boys and the peaceful place is soon turned into a lawless place. To restore law and order, a lawman is needed. Lucky Luke, the cowboy who shoots faster than his shadow, will be this man: all the villains had better watch out! Written by Guy Bellinger

Great little film
27 June 2008 | by vawlkee_2000See all my reviews

The first incarnation of the Lucky Luke comics to be done for the screen.

Belvision still had a ways to go with the quality of their animation, but this still works, due in no small part to the talents of Morris and Goscinny which translate well in any language or medium.

I'd love to see it in the original language with subtitles but I have to settle for the American version which I've had for years....And it's pretty lame!

For some reason the powers that be decided to use Rich Little and Rich Little only for ALL the voices - and it really hurts....Yeah, he's a pretty good V/O guy, but ALL the voices?? No way! Lucky Luke sounds like a bad rendition of Gary Cooper and the rest of the cast sound like lame takeoffs of other celebs....Ugh!

There's one very clever and poignant sequence in the film that shows the plight of the American Indian in a humorous but effective way that we in America don't seem to get. The poor guy is sitting in the desert and the next thing you know he's surrounded by superhighways, shown in live action no less.

1978's sequel: "Ballad of the Daltons" was superior in every way, they'd really hit their stride by that time.
