Customer Review

on 1 June 2008
I have enduring memories of the original, seen in black and white in the local flea pit in Belfast approximately a million years ago, so I was keen to see this one. Now it has to be remembered that the Western is really a type of American fairy tale where a man's gotta do what a man's gotta do, and all sorts of improbablilities abound, such as the fast draw that never really existed and the squeezing of an entire arsenal of machine gun-like shots out of a gun that only held six bullets and which had to be cocked every time. So, one has to accept this and enjoy the ride.

I found the ride reasonably enjoyable. Crowe and Bale do quite a good job, as does the nasty SOB who is Crowe's 2IC. However, the ending is so wildly, completely improbable that it just spoiled the whole show for me. Surely a more likely ending could have been contrived?
