Editorial Reviews

A revolver holds six deadly bullets. Likewise, the train to Sunshine Hill holds Lola, Alice, Janette, Helen, Caroline and Margaret. Margaret is the daughter of a famous sheriff, Caroline is a young girl forced to defend herself on her own, Helen is a confident saloon singer, Janette is a caring doctor, Alice is as wealthy as she is deadly, and Lola leads them with her perfect marksmanship. The find themselves on a train escorting a man named Spencer from the frontier. He counts among his enemies an outlaw gang of notorious robbers. They're more than ready to take his head along with the train’s cache of gold if the girls can’t stop them!

Early Reins is set in the late nineteenth century American West. It is the story of six women who thwart a train robbery by the Heaven's Hill Gang, which is made up of former Confederate soldiers. The previous sentence gives a good hint to the level of Wild West train movie clichés that you will find in this film. Early Reins digs up just about everything you can do in a Wild West train film: in the course of the many shootouts the characters climb all over the train cars and jump from car to car, the bandits ride up on horseback to attack the train and the heroines have to defend the train as if it is some kind of fortress on wheels, the train bandits decouple the end train cars in order to leave behind the US soldiers who were supposed to be guarding the train, the train's breaks won't work which results in dramatic runaway train action, and so forth. However, the film also contains elements that are surprising in a Western. For example, the main protagonist is a miniskirt-wearing young woman who is a sheriff in training. The design of this character seems to be drawing on anime tropes of attractive yet strong young women as main protagonist, but the juxtaposition in this film of anime clichés with wild west clichés sometimes creates interesting results. There are a few diving-to-the-side-in-slow-motion shootout scenes, which work out pretty well. The animation of the film is uneven. Most of it is pretty good, but there are a couple of shots that seemed like they subcontracted it out to some kind of budget animation shop.

The biggest weakness of the film is that it is very short--45 minutes. While that's probably all they could afford for this OVA (original video animation), it does sell the story short.

The basic story is that a train is highjacked and a group of young women end up having to take on a group of ruthless bandits whose leader has a shocking history!
