For all that I've heard about the rousing feud that took place between the Hatfields and the McCoy families, HATFIELDS & MCCOYS: BAD BLOOD drew very little blood. There only are a few killings here - though I have absolutely no idea how much if any of this is based on historical events (though I suspect there must be some correlation) - and what there is I'd hardly call `bloody.' Still, there's a respectable undercurrent of shared loathsome running through the entire piece - I wish it had been given greater clarification - so, on that front, I'd give it a decent two and one-half stars as a TV-grade oater.

The story? Well, there are these two familes - one called Hatfield, and one called McCoy - and they basically don't play nicely with one another. The script doesn't give any great exploration as to why - suffice it to say that there are hints pointing to being so closely tied to a dividing line between the North and the South in the Civil War - but it's given way too quick a pass. Still, their long-standing dispute comes to a head when one careless murder leads to another, pushing the two opposing patriarchs - the ever-reliable Jeff Fahey stars as Devil Anse Hatfield, and longtime TV regular Perry King stars as Ran'l McCoy - to finally take stands against one another. Dead bodies follow, though the pile-up here was pretty mild.

In all seriousness, BAD BLOOD could've been a better picture on a lot of fronts. For starters, there's enough acting talent in there - maybe not Academy Award caliber, but solid feature and television experience - that should've lifted this production to another level. The greatest problem would appear to have been the lack of serious money thrown into the mill.

It probably wasn't fair that I watched this on the heels of the History Channel's version, but I did, thus my review of this movie might be *slightly* biased.

First of all...it is so historically inaccurate that it's not funny. I can't give too much away here without spoiling it for everybody else, so I won't go too much into the plot. However, very little was accurate in this tale, from the murder of Asa Harmon McCoy to the killing of Ellison Hatfield to the Hatfields' attack on the McCoy family to simply who survived the feud and what worked out in the end. Secondly, the acting ranged from bad to lukewarm. Maybe it was because of the dreadful dialogue, I don't know. But the kid who played Johnse's little brother was memorably terrible, as were the men playing the McCoy brothers. Kassandra Clementi didn't fare any better as Roseanna (but, again, that might be a bias, as I really loved Lindsay Pulsipher as Roseanna in the HC version). Sean Flynn (Errol Flynn's grandson, in case you didn't know) wasn't terrible, but...

"Sigh"

I guess it's entertaining enough if you can overlook the inaccuracies, the bad dialogue, and acting and just take it for what it is - a straight-to-video movie that should easily be accessible in the sales bins at your local Wal-Mart or Target. It sure beat studying for the Praxis tonight. But if you want a good and fairly accurate story of the Hatfield-McCoy Feud and one that actually has great acting (Tom Berenger, I'm looking at you!), please see the History Channel version. Plus that version's Bad Frank Phillips was bad-a**; he bled coolness in the way that this one didn't.

Could there be a worse retelling of a well-known tale? Probably, but it would likely involve aliens, about the only departure from fact this mess doesn't make.

A cast of has-beens and never wases delivering bad lines in an amateur staccato that would embarrass any Intro to Drama student, coupled with ridiculous departures from known facts make this mess so unwatchable I actually sought some counsel from a priest to atone for the sin of having watched it. At best, it was a chance to see Errol Flynn's grandson Sean prove that talent can skip more than one generation. Maybe his kids will have some?

But hey, nice scenery....

I was hanging on to my two year old while trying to pick a movie from the Redbox machine when I found what I thought was an episode from the History Channel's Hatfields & McCoys show. I should have looked at it closer before renting, but, like I said, I had my two year old and it was a crazy moment. I quickly realized Redbox had duped me with their common bait and switch trick of putting junk movies in their boxes that are similar to better shows and films that recently came out.
This is not a good film. The acting is terrible. The costumes are so perfect they stand out. In this movie everyone in the 1860s had very clean and new clothes, even though they wore them day after day. The men were unshaven and the women had messy hair, but that was the only thing that made them look like they lived in a time without easy grooming items.
The motivations were weak and rushed, and everything about this film felt like a movie made by some college students for 10,000 bucks, or less.
Don't get tricked into renting this movie from Redbox. I paid $1.20 to rent this and I feel like it was an awful loss.
