It's 1868 and the war has been over for three years. An old abandoned mine is now being transformed into a military stronghold by a corrupt Mayor and band of blood thirsty outlaws whom are a part of a larger web hell-bent on a re-surge of the civil war. When a US Marshal, James McCord comes to town only to find out that his brother has been murdered, his search for the killer takes him on life or death struggle for a much greater cause.Written by
Whilst TNT was invented in 1863 its explosive qualities were not utilised till at least 20 years later thus its use as such would not have been known in 1870 See more »
Pretty sure they didn't have conventional hay / straw balers back in 1870 . Lots of bales scattered around the streets . See more »
Credits to the townspeople and Army soldiers are entitled TOWNSPEOPLE AND CALVERY See more »
See my Hickok review - Same applies
Watched the equally dire Hickock movie last night and another howler tonight.
Despite the excellent Stephen Lang being in it, he couldn't save the farcically bad acting of the rest of the cast , the dire story and the whole thing in general.
As someone else watching at the time pointed out - the characters all look clean and tidy whereas real westerns like Pale Rider they actually looked dirty, unshaven, wretched and like a real cowboy back then would probably look like - In all these modern cowboy movies the art is lost and its all full of pretty boys like Hemsworth with their six packs , tans and glamour boy antics - as my girlfriend often says- "where are all the real men these days"? - As i say , well you women ushered in the metrosexual and are now complaining that modern men have no balls so its actually your fault lol Feminism eh doesn't really know what it wants - like most women really but I digress...
Seriously though if you want a decent western you will have to look into a back catalogue of 20 years ago as I haven't seen anything to rival the WILD BUNCH or any of Clint Eastwoods epic westerns!
