1.0 out of 5 stars Dear sweet lord..., August 22, 2012
This review is from: Bad Blood Hatfields & Mccoys (DVD)
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.
