Startlingly Stupid Western Disappoints!
8 October 2008 | by vitaleralphlouisSee all my reviews

We love westerns and wish there were more of them; but this one was made by people who lack the good sense of a goat.

The story has been told a hundred times about the brave ranchers and settlers trying to hold out against an abusive takeover of their land at unfair compensation. Almost all previous movies were better than this sorry mess. The story is absolutely ruined by the emptyheadedness of today's talent-free film-makers -- who refuse to learn anything from the greats of yesteryear.

To begin with, the picture substitutes excessive violence in place of a good story. The story is actually a muddled mess at best. They use all of the born-stupid techniques that spoil so many recent pictures: bad photography, dreadful editing, wrong-headed camera shots, and one of the new computer-generated musical scores that never ceases to annoy -- and never lets up. Music is supposed to enhance the action, not detract from it.

If you love westerns, skip this stinker. Perhaps Genius Pictures which made it will fade away.
