** It isn't a great movie. Not bad, but not great. On first viewing, it was kind of confusing at the beginning, but as I got into the story and the characters, I forgot about that. Some of the dialog could have been smoother, and more realistic, but the story itself was interesting. Most of the characters had enough depth that I was interested enough to wonder how they would end up.
** I admit the only reason I bought the DVD was because Reneé O'Connor (Gabrielle in "Xena: Warrior Princess") was in the movie. I would have liked for her to have had a larger part, but what little she had to do was well done, even the ending, which I won't reveal for those people who hate to read the Spoilers.
** Would I recommend that you buy it? Yes, if you like movies; western movies; movies that aren't your typical shoot 'em up; and if you are a fan of, and want to see more of, the infrequently seen Reneé O'Connor.

I watched this film simply because it had Renee O'Connor in it. She played a character named "Little Jack". I kept waiting for Little Jack to step in & do something heroic, but she did not. Ghost Town doesn't have a clear protagonist. The direction is quite bad. We either see close ups of faces or feet. Back up off your actors, Please! I'd like to see what they are doing. The female Native American character is completely wasted. There are 5 females in the cast. One is a ghost, one is a little girl who might or might not be a ghost (I was never quite clear on that), one is a self-righteous woman who has about 2 seconds in the film, one is Little Jack (who did nothing but shots & hang around in the background until the climax) & the last (the Native American) just got worried, went to town, got beaten up & abused & ran back home with her tail between her legs. This is a low budget Indie movie, but a solid protagonist is essential as well as a good story & this is neither. I think the writer intended for the Native American character's father to be the main protagonist, but he is bed-ridden with fever induced visions of the past until nearly the last 10 to 15 minutes of the film. The writer & director never seem to build any suspense at all. The music seems inappropriate to the mood in nearly every scene. There were a couple of great actors, Renee being one, that were completely wasted in this production. Even if you are a big Renee fan, I suggest not wasting your time with this one.

I appreciate that this was a family project and labor of love, so maybe the movie is meant for viewers with some kind of connection to the theme park that this movie is based on. For the rest of us, this really needed more....a LOT more.

The opening was deadly dull, and I was anxious for the focus to come off the old guy in his sick bed with his devoted daughter by his bedside. Imagine my shock when this turned out to be the hero of the story. Since the plot is about a legendary man who took vengeance for his father's death and who still inspires fear in those who wronged him, I simply wasn't convinced when the man in question seemed more like a scruffy prospector than the stuff of legend.

This could have been so much better if cast with someone stronger in the role, a Clint Eastwood type. If it's just that the filmmakers were purposely trying to play against stereotype, I think they could have done that more effectively by letting ol' "Harm" remain a mystery until his return. That build up would have been much more dramatic.

The romantic plot between Will and Harm's daughter Violet also failed because there just wasn't enough capable acting or palpable chemistry between these two players to make me believe that their characters could fall for each other in such a short time. Frankly, I don't think they needed to fall for each other at all. A simple sense of decency would have made Will want to protect Violet.

Charles Matthau (yup, Walter's boy) was kind of fun as the Doc, and I also liked Rance Howard (yup, Opie's dad) as the Sheriff. But Xena-pal Renee O'Connor was totally wasted in the part of Little Jack. I think she had one or two full sentences to say the entire time; the rest of her lines were semi-articulate half phrases.

Staged gunfights and saloon brawls are better than the early Westerns with Tim McCoy, Don Steele, Ken Maynard, Tom Mix, and the rest. I liked it and compared to the olde timey ones shown on small screens like 35mm this film shines through as an Independent Gem with good acting and some humor thrown in! You young whippersnappers that wanna dis this thing have nary an idear of how far movies have come from the 30's and 40's when as a boy, I watched them in theatres or on TV later! So don't cut this down or like the OG in this film; me and my pards will come hunting you down for a real thrashing!

Even though this was clearly a low budget movie with no big names associated with it, I found myself getting engrossed with it as it moved along. The casting turned out to be very good for the most part. although I believe a better choice could have been made for the villain's son. He seemed a little too wimpy for the independent son he was portraying. On the other hand, his father was suitably nasty and the undertaker was extremely creepy.This was an interesting study of good and evil with alot of gray in between.
