Storyline

An outlaw biker (Paxton), having recently robbed a train depot, arrives in the post-apocalyptic boom town of Martini Ranch. He parties with his crew (Reinhold, Cort, Pasdar, Reiser, Hendricksen, etc.) and enjoys the charms of a local girl (Louise Paxton). Meanwhile, close on his trail is a posse of female bounty Hunters (led by Bigelow). They capture Paxton, hog-tie him and brand him, while hanging one of his cohorts (Todd). Paxton escapes, rounds up his crew and confronts the cowgirls in the street. After being deserted by his crew, Paxton shoots it out with the women alone, but is hopelessly outnumbered.

Music video oddity by James Cameron
23 November 2011 | by See all my reviews

This is a really music video directed by James Cameron (Aliens, Titanic, Avatar etc)for the band Martini Ranch. The video takes place in a post apocalyptic alternative cowboy setting where actor Bill Paxton plays an outlaw chased by a group of female bounty hunters.

The group leader of these bounty leaders is no other then director Kathryn Bigelow(Near Dark, Strange Days, Hurtlocker etc)who was married to Cameron at this time. The video is full of cameos by some well known actors such as: Lance Henriksen, Adrian Pasdar, Judge Reinhold, Paul Reiser etc, just to name a few.

Bigelow looks amazing(still does)one would have wished for sequel, prequel with her characters background story. But what about the music? Fairly entertaining 80's type synth pop.....nothing unusual, however the video(with all these cameos)makes up for the not so brilliant song.

Well worth look, and not only for Cameron fans.
