Editorial Reviews

Sierra Nevada Mountains, 1887: William Drayton, once a crack sharpshooter in the Civil War, has lost his wife and home. He has ascended to the high country, wanting never to be heard from again. But someone is trying to find him -- a long-lost daughter, Elizabeth, whom Drayton thought had died long before. Meanwhile, banker-turned-robber baron Horace Scarsdale has mustered an army of cutthroats and guns for hire to help him build his railroad empire. When Drayton returns to “civilization” with his daughter and friends, he decided to make a stand against Scarsdale, his former employer. Against impossible odds, he faces down the vicious band of raiders that Scarsdale calls “The Company Men.”

This is really bad. The acting is so hokey and unconvincing. Madsen does practically nothing and his appearance is almost an after thought. The sound is terrible. Gunshots sound distant as if recorded on a cheap video camera. The special effects, as in dynamite explosions, are so hokey it makes me wonder if they used cartoon animators. This film smells like low,low budget. I can watch almost any crappy film but this was almost too much for me. Its one of the few dvd's that went straight from the dvd player to the trash!

The acting and dialouge are so bad, the movie is funny. I was in LOL mode during the first hanging scene as a woman pleads for the life of the boy being hung. "Please, please, he is so young. Take me instead!"

Michael Madsen plays a US marshal on the take. The soundtrack is confusing at times as I expect zombies to appear at any moment. The camera gives a lot of facial close-ups while people are talking, although not always on the person doing the talking.

Scarsdale (Dave Long) has hired thugs to seize land and a town because the RR is coming through. As people get killed, Elizabeth Drayton (newcomer Heather Clark), having been raised by Indians too poor to send her to acting school, looks for her long lost daddy, sharpshooter William Drayton. It isn't hard to figure out how these two subplots come together.

William Drayton (Jim Hilton),who learned acting by watching Sam Elliot movies, has more dramatic pauses than a William Shatner film festival. The film was written, directed, produced, edited, and music written by Christopher Forbes, best known for being the illegitimate son of Ed Wood (just kidding, although if you told me it was true, I would believe it.)

one star sober, four stars with the funny stuff.

This "movie" is so bad that it is actually funny to watch. Terrible dialogue and wooden characterizations abound in this (Sorry, I can't force myself to insult other movies by calling this turkey a movie!) artless waste of time and film. Even the scenery is silly. Picture this: an 1887 western railroad town, with a nice smooth gravel main street! Not a horse hoof print or wagon track to be seen anywhere! The most entertaining thing about this movie was simply watching how unbelievable it was.

Review title says it all.

I rated this 1 star out of 5 because they don't give you the option to choose no stars. Don't waste your money on this film. A pre-school class could have made something more entertaining than this. I feel robbed by the people who put this movie out there. If I could go back in time and had the choice between paying for this movie or throwing $100 down a toilet I would've chose the latter just because I wouldn't want to give the film producers 1 cent of my money for this rubbish.

The movie was like if you got a bunch of your college friends together in a bar and after a few everyone wrote a scene . The next day you film it with your iphone . I didn't even realize it when the movie ended. Michael Madsen is a great actor. Why he signed up for this I'll never know.It can't belive it was for the money because I'm sure this video didn't make any. Incidentally he headlines the movie but his scenes are very limited . This was so bad I can't even call it a movie. A series of video clips that make no sense.

Very lousy start and badly made movie. It got better after awhile and then it didn't end. That's right. This thing is a trilogy. Lead actor is good, but just about everybody else is lousy. Micheal Madsen is in it to attract people to it or more like trick people into watching it.

This movie was so lame, I couldn't get past the first 15min.. the acting was like watching a high school play, and that's almost an insult to a high school theater group, but the script was crap, the acting was worse.. you couldn't even believe it was half real..
Don't waste your time, unless you go nothing else better to do, oh wait.. I'd repaint my house before I'd watch that crap again..

I was not expecting much from this movie to begin with, but it was a great laugh. I think Michael Madsen must be a good friend of the director, or did it as a favor for family...because I cannot see this being something he actually wanted his name on. :D
