90s B- martial arts film set in the Wild west.
20 March 2016 | by Fella_shibbySee all my reviews

Directed by Isaac Florentine. Its a direct to video low budget. I saw this in the late 90s. Was OK for that time. Fans of martial arts can watch it once. Enough action to satisfy reasonable martial arts and western fans. The lead guy Oliver Gruner is a talented martial artist. The music was gud but it steals a few ideas from Ennio Morricone and a flashback scene is a blatant knockoff of Once Upon A Time In The West. A Spaghetti western with Martial arts. The epic fly scene shudnt b miss by anyone. Wooden acting by Ashley Laurence (hellraiser movies). James brolin ( Josh brolins father ) looks bore. Bad editing, bad acting, OK direction with good cinematography.
