Pretty decent western that deserves a wider release than being tied to Tidal.
14 February 2019 | by poopfockSee all my reviews

Unfortunately for this film, you can only see it on Tidal...and that's a bit of a shame because, for what it is, it's pretty good. I wouldn't say its great, but its worth a watch and should at least be put on YouTube, or Netflix, or Amazon or something. Being buried on Tidal isn't doing this movie any favors. It's a good little western. Yeah, it's a short film and mostly dialogue but its packed full of good actors and has a unique (well, I haven't seen it before) little twist on the showdown-at-noon plot. Probably the only bad thing about the movie is that some of the actors seem to be musicians, or maybe just poor actors, and they bring an otherwise solid film down a little bit. Other than that, I think everything else turned out rather well. I would say it's at least worth doing the free trial of Tidal to watch it, then immediately cancel your subscription, lol.
