A very quick gunman is on the run from a rancher and his men out to kill him for killing his son. The gunman gets mixed up with a former Confederate soldier who has knowledge of hidden gold.

It all leads to a small Mexican town terrorized by soldiers and led a by a good priest who also has knowledge of the gold. Written by John Sacksteder <Jsack@ka.net>

More style than substance
15 October 1998 | by ElGatoSee all my reviews

Lots of nice eye candy, but the cinematography does not compare to that in The Quick and the Dead, a film this TNT original brings to mind. The story is flimsy and too busy, but nevermind. The real purpose is for Emilio Estevez to squint and Howie Long to wear a duster while shooting up the "bad" guys in an attempt to emulate Sam Raimi or Peckinpah.

Not an entire waste of time. I was sitting at home while my wife was out of town, and enjoyed it for what it is: a non-pretentious, silly western with some gravitational tricks that would make Xena jealous.

El Gato says check it out.
