Editorial Reviews

A stellar cast, including Martin Sheen, Christopher Atkins and Jurgen Prochnow, star in this fast and furious adventure set across the Rio Grande just after the great Civil War. Defeated Confederate soldiers, branded outlaws by their own government, are recruited for one final mission to restore their lost glory. Aided by a beautiful fortune Southern spy, they are assigned to run guns to the Mexican Government. After blasting it out with the local rebels, these renegades must then pass through territory controlled by the invading French Army. With nothing to lose, they ride bravely into battle, determined to regain their honor and prepared for anything that lies ahead!

This is a great movie. It shows the dark side of war and the always grey zone that separates the winners from the losers. I loved that an Indian was a hero in the movie. There are disappointingly few Indian heroes in American movies. The story is wonderful with danger, friendship, revenge, honour and even a little romance. The actors play very good and the movie is very believable. The scenes in the movie are beautiful. The movie is very realistic about the war and the civil casualties that are in every war so this movie is definitely NOT for children but for adults who wants to see a good movie which tells a frightening real story of war.

This mess is the remainder from a cobbled miniseries of which most, thankfully, has been left in the can, as is apparent by the billing: Jurgen Prochnow (1st) has a half-dozen or so short lines and nearly no screen time, Martin Sheen (2nd) disappears completely early on, Corbin Bernsen (3rd) does not appear at all. The screenplay is based upon the novel "The Ysabel Kid" by a popular English novelist writing as J. T. Edson (whose historically inaccurate depictions of Western Americana were researched for the most part in his favourite pub), and is replete with incongruity of dialogue, often lapsing into late 20th century American urban slang, only one element that is in the molding of this grotesque item. After studying its first half, a viewer will feel completely befogged after the plentiful activity involving frantic gunplay, fist fighting, rape, illy-advised nudity, and gore galore, since there are few, if any, clues given as to what may be transpiring, eased but mildly by an action halting soliloquy delivered by the female lead that tugs from the proceedings some vague concept of the story's direction. The plot engages a group of Confederate soldiers, shortly after the end of the War Between The States, that is attempting to smuggle new Winchester rifles, bestowed by the United States government upon Mexican rebels warring against Emperor Maximilian's French troops, and additionally involves another set of ex-Confederates that is bent upon delivering documents of amnesty from Washington to the other Southerners so that all may return to the reunited Union and prepare to wage war with French invaders into Texas (a fantasy of novelist Edson).Read more ›

I recently bought this video and its follow up. I am a JT Edson fan and looked forward to watching them brought to the screen. Whilst they follow the books in some way there are a number of minor discrepancies which can grate. However they are well worth watching especially for the Ysabel Kids humour. The two movies follow on from one another which is not like the books. There is also the problems that the enemy is the northern states despite the American Civil war being over. I am sure they could not kill that many cavalry and get away with it. Still as a shoot them up they are very good and I recommend them.

As a great fan of JT Edson's scrupulously well-researched, intelligent Westerns, I purchased this eagerly. It does have the ever watcheable Martin Sheen and the excellent but underrated Chris Atkins as a very good "Dusty Fog". Unfortunately "based on" should come with the qualifier "just barely". It follows every Western cliche known to man and the plot is wafer-thin. On top of this there are two extremely unpleasant and gratuitous scenes - one of rape - that were clearly included for no better reason than to give male viewers a close up look of the actresses jiggling bare breasts; the rape scene is thus particularly offensive. The Edson books are wonderful, I just wish someone would come along and film them properly as they deserve to be done. Final nitpick - Mark Counter is blond-haired and he and the Ysabel Kid get along with each other fine!
