4.0 out of 5 stars Bush Whacker Trials!, 29 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Mad Dog Morgan [DVD] (DVD)
Its 1860~ish and Daniel Morgan is an Irishman prospecting in the outback, who goes crazy, after all his bestest Chinese friends get massacred, when the other Irish prospectors shoot up their crack (opium) tent. So Morgan, enraged by this, goes about trying to exact justice by mugging people, until that is, the authorities put a stop to his hijinks by locking him in a hole full of toothless rapists, whilst forcing him to work hard labour.
Eventually he is released but soon goes back to his old ways, due to his problems, namely in that he's skint, and also that he suffers from ADHD long before it's even been diagnosed. And if that's not bad enough, long before Ritalin has even been invented too. Which results in exasperation for those who're trying to maintain law and order...

Shot in the outback, this 1970's, offbeat western, has a heck of a lot going for it. There's a good atmosphere and approach to it's montage of exploits, and Dennis Hopper is on fine, frazzled form as the title character. There's plenty of violence and quite a bit of crude charm, which would probably engage more people than will ever watch it. Shame.

The Waterfall dvd release is an absolutely awful print. So my advice would be to go for the remastered edition instead.
4.25/5 rounded down
