Good in parts,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dead Man's Walk  [DVD] (DVD)
I bought this on the strength of its link with Lonesome Dove. With top quality actors like Brian Dennehy, Edward James Olmos and the brilliant Harry Dean Stanton involved Dead Mans Walk was off to a flying start. Add the western backdrop, Texas Rangers and credible 'native Americans' (should the Apache be native Mexican Americans?) and a storyline full of action and this production should have been a sure fire hit. My problem lies with the two young heroes. Jonny Lee Millar - the sensible, natural fighter - looks as formidable as a chocolate éclair. His only claim to fame was shooting a Comanche struggling towards him waist high in a river and despite trying to look mean didn't strike me as someone to cross the road to avoid. His sidekick, David Arquette, was too dopey to hit the floor if he fell out of bed and a very young Jennifer Garner must have been drunk to think him suitable breeding stock. The supporting characters made this DVD a very watchable production and if two strong characters had been given the lead parts it could well have been a minor classic. Good effort but not top quality.
