1.0 out of 5 stars Beware, misleading listing on Amazon, 5 Jun. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Young Duke - Bandits Of The Badlands [DVD] (DVD)
The Young Duke series has taken 13 of John Wayne's 'poverty row' Westerns; re coloured them, added a seriously dubious modern song which tries to capture the 60s guitars of Morricone, but fails miserably and chops them down to half an hour each.

If you're a John Wayne fan you probably already know all this, but here's a few things you may not:

Plus point:
The colourisation of these old films is actually very well done, unlike some attempts at this process.

Minus points:
The editing has been done with a blunt knife, it's so crude in places you think the DVD has jumped.
The song is terrible and, unfortunately, in the forefront of the audio mix, it gets faded in and out as crudely as the editing.
But the biggest failing is in the listing!
I bought this thinking it was a 2 disc set where it is infact a single disc which only has 5 of the 13 'episodes' on it.
This is an error on Amazon's part.

Get the colourised box set of the full versions of 6 of these films if you want to do them justice.
