Brings back the great 'value' lessons of the olden days
I am not a movie critic and don't have the guts to comment on acting or cinematography. Instead I am an average movie goer who'd watch movies either for the sake of entertainment or some easy to understand lessons and Doc West has both. Hill has been my favorite since I first saw him when I was a kid in They Call me Trinity. Now myself in the forties, I did not expect him to be jumping high and low and doing all those acrobatics that he did in the days of Watch Out We Are Mad! or I am for the Hippopotamus. I rather wanted to see him as a mature but the same 'magical' person who could make all wrongs right—-and that too in a smiling way. And believe me ye people, he just did that.
This movie has really made me respect Terrence Hill. Instead of some chocolate cream hero, who'd never accept the aging factor, Hill has totally embraced it and kept his head high by playing a respectable character who despite realizing the darker sides of life, still has that mesmerizing look in his eyes. Those eyes still shine, even though filled with tears.
I look at the movie as a true family drama. Not a serious one but touching some of the very serious things in a very light manner. I even liked the character of Millie's father for sticking to his commitments, something you don't very often see in the average portrayals of rich and selfish people.
The above so-so comments come mainly from the people who are either very 'practical' about things or expect Terence Hill to never grow old :). The beauty of the actor/director is 'not to pretend' and rather choose a role suiting his current looks. The kid in me still believes that he is the fastest gun in the west and the best cardsharp :) I recommend this movie to an average person who still believes in old values and is nostalgic. You can watch this movie with your kids and even grand kids without hesitation and will enjoy every bit of it, guaranteed! And yes, the acting (except of Hill's) might seem flimsy to some 'had critics't believe me nobody want an Academy nomination for their acting, and to me they fit perfectly in the film. I hope most of you'd like them too, especially Paul Sorvino. I loved him as the Sheriff.
