Horrendous
24 July 2006 | by zwartjeSee all my reviews

One of the worst movies I have ever seen.

  • acting...uh what acting - plot...just plain silly. I bet the book was good but this movie puts the whole story to shame.


  • i took us about 15 minutes to find out the movie took place in Mexico or some other country in central America. Bad casting: Gringo Americans trying to act like Mexicans - the guy who played Kino bombed it so badly that it wasn't funny anymore.


  • why oh why did Richard Harris take part in this movie. Doesn't he have better things to do like take care of his garden and visit grandchildren and so on.


+ the DVD's box made me pick up this crap so i guess it's worth mentioning
