PG-13: western violence and some intense brawls throughout/language

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (1 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

It's impossible not to think of Clint Eastwood in his great Westerns when watching his youngest son, Scott, in this poor one, and the comparison isn't favorable. Both the movie and its star seem empty. The young Eastwood looks a little like his legendary father, but he lacks any kind of edge, history, or character -- the best he can manage is holstering his guns with a little flourish -- and he doesn't seem particularly smart or brave.

Following Jackson through the story, especially after its disappointing "twist," leaves viewers with little to care about. His quest, and all the killings, become ultimately pointless. Moreover, Eastwood is continually upstaged by his far more charismatic co-stars, each of whom only appears for a few minutes, especially de Almeida, Beach, Glovery, and Goggins (who's also in The Hateful Eight). It's too bad this cast was wasted on such a poor movie.
