Most of the small weapons used during the shooting scene did not exist at that time, the movie is settled e. g. a Colt 38 Special Police Service weapon (on markets after the turn of the century) several Magnum Type revolvers (S & W .357 Magnum) which did not exist before the 1960ies. Very special are Guererros revolvers, which were simply fantasy weapons: a three barrel Colt Dragoon front, mounted on a Le Mat rear end with the Le Mat 9 shoot cylinder. See more »
'Dead in Tombstone' is A Fair Entertainer, that works due to its fast-paced script, attractive visuals & sincere performances by Danny Trejo & Mickey Rourke.
'Dead in Tombstone' Synopsis: A gang overruns a small mining town murdering their own leader Guerrero, in a cold-blooded power grab. Sentenced to eternity in hell he finds himself confronted by Satan himself, offering a daring proposition: deliver the six souls of his former gang and he will escape damnation. With time running out, he sets out on a brutal rampage to avenge his own death.
'Dead in Tombstone' works as a time-pass entertainer. The Script is predictable, but fast-paced. The momentum is ably maintained & the action-sequences are raw & rustic. Roel Reiné's Direction is well-done. Cinematography is attractive, creating impressive visuals all through.
Performance-Wise: Trejo & Rourke deliver sincerely. While Trejo is much in character, its Rourke who seems to be relaxing & having a ball playing Lucifer.
On the whole, 'Dead in Tombstone' has decent merits.
