In my nearly-50 years, I have watched tens of thousands of movies. And yet I can't think of one that stunk as badly as this picture. The makers of this film try to pass off as "artsy" a film that has no plot, asinine dialogue, thoroughly detestable characters and an unredeemed attraction to gore and ugliness. Val Kilmer should be shot for real for lending his name and photo to this picture. Comparisons to Eastwood's spaghetti westerns are ludicrous.
Just poke yourself int the eye. You'll save a dollar and have essentially the same experience.
is to be paid for a drunken Sheriff and a bar maid, his Civil war bride.
All sorrow and blood for bounty.
A very black western that comes just short of an horror movie.
More blood and severed heads than I would ever like to see
again. We have no sympathy left for anyone by the happy ending.
Second, while gold can sometimes be found on the very surface of this planet, available to those who are in the right place at the right time, and looking down at the proper instant, much more often we need to employ extreme means, take great risks, even sacrifice lives to bring the purest of the yellow stuff to hand. The same analogy can be applied to humor: there are the Steve Martins and G. Gordon Liddys, and then there are (were) the much more scarce and hard to mine Bill Hicks, Fr. Guido Sarducci (Don Novello), and Andy Kaufman.
There were subtle, hilarious moments in Dead Man's Bounty, but I fear tha Roman Polanski was right about the singular, ascerbic, often incomprehensible nature of the Polish character, especially where humour is concerned. It does astound me that the same people who worship the overrated rubber-mug Tarantino's 'gonzo humor' were not able to extract a few nuggets to laugh over from this wide Polish parody of the American/Italian pasta/TV dinner western. I might mean Hang 'Em High or I might be thinking of the tube's endless "Bonanza." Or worst of all, the terminally constipating "Gun Smoke." (Btw the USA's Food And Drug Administration once did consider requiring a pre-broadcast, on-screen black box warning to be aired before "Gun Smoke's weekly offering began to roll...cautioning the delicate and the elderly to have plenty of HOT prune juice within arm's reach just in case...Read more ›
It opens with people lying on the ground near a lake. All dead? One man is carried away. Elsewhere a man carves a figure in the sand with the scabbard of a sword. A man enters a bar, he is blindfolded with leather goggles. This building has openings in the walls, like a barn. There is rain outside the Sheriff's Office. Elsewhere men laugh at a woman. A man brings in a wanted poster, but the Sheriff is a week's ride away. There are more strange events. Do they make sense to you? [Is this a bunch of lunatics who have escaped from an asylum?] The next morning a man leaves from the second story of a building. Another man points a pistol at a man with a rifle. "Drop the gun!" He does and it goes off wounding a man. There are more shots and men fall.
The next morning men ride out in pursuit of the man who got away. "No hanging without a trial." Is that man turning back? "We'll cut him off at the pass." "Do you know what that means?" "Absolutely nothing." [I'm not making this up.] They see a shack. A bloody man counts his bullets. [Does anything here make sense to you?] The men are riding further and further away from town. Another man is beaten. [Senseless violence again.] A man falls off his horse; only four are left. "Where are those tracks?" There is a shack alongside a railway. A man chops wood. Are those riders going in a circle? [Does that symbolize this movie? Can those men go on without food and water?] "It's the Sheriff's horse." A man asks for a drink. A train whistle sounds. That woman talks about her expectations. Her scars will be kissed. The man chopping wood makes a mistake and screams.
Would this movie get any better? I didn't think so and changed to another station. It is way too bad to be considered a parody of anything.Read more ›
