Great Action, bad plot

by Vladi on 12/13/1999

As and action movie it was quite good. Kinda like a western but in the 1920's . John Smith (Bruce Willis) is very cool, yet the character doesn't really grab you as he could. Heke (Christopher Walken) is also underplayed. The whole plot could have been written to be more exciting. If you're looking for lots of shooting this is definitely for you. If the purpose of life is your quest, go see an opera. Read More

Editors Note
Note In a dusty, Prohibition-era Texas border town, a lone-wolf hit-man richochets between rival mobs, pinning his allegiance to whomever offers more money for his services. But when he sticks his neck out to help a woman, he ends up risking more than money--he risks developing a conscience. Hill patterned his film after Kurosawa's legendary 1961 YOJIMBO.
Plot Summary

He discovers that two rival bootleg gangs, one Italian, the other Irish, are seriously at odds with each other. So much so, that all of the residents have left, and the Sheriff has given up doing his job. | Sensing an opportunity to make money, Smith decides to hire himself out to BOTH factions -- and play each side against the other. Will Smith's clever scheme work? Or will the ensuing violence he causes take his life instead?

Review Although Willis provides a commanding performance, it's Bruce Dern as a corrupt sheriff who has the best lines, providing some well-needed comic relief in this heavy, gritty modern-day western. Lombard gives a haunting turn as Felina, the Native American beauty imprisoned by Doyle. Christopher Walken adds a scary presence in a small role as a hitman. Ry Cooder's edgy soundtrack provides just the right amount of atmosphere to the plethora of action scenes; you can almost smell the gunpowder smoking.

ReviewSource VideoHound's Golden Movie Retriever
Review Engaging, but not terribly original gangster/western features a plot taken from Clint Eastwood's career-making Fistful Of Dollars (in turn, an adaptation of Akira Kurosawa's Yojimbo). The producers and credits claim lineage directly from the Kurosawa film, but this story's been around for a while... Willis nicely injects his smirking brand of wit into a film that may have benefitted from more of the dark Yojimbo action sequences.
