I think many viewers like to look films in the genre of the Western. Well, I no exception of this rule. Especially if the description promises adventure and story of the real hero of the past, which was black 19th century, but he was allowed to be the Deputy judge and his assistant. But only the case when it will be able to catch the very cool and terrible bandit.

At the same time he couldn't read and write, but but dexterously applied with arms very quickly when it is required. Story idea was even trite, but is entertaining. But still very execution in General is not enough of the scale and so a lot of money for this. Well and entertainment still could be more. But in General I think many will manage to the end. Of course he viewing me long will be remembered, but most of the new westerns I usually are not very well received. And then inspected and have some fun viewing the budget of the film.

A film on my opinion, is too tightened. Length is almost 2 hours, but events on hours small. A lot of chatter, chatter and other boring action that spoil and without that not the most successful film. Action as such the film is a little, but not particularly it is there need for the semantic component. Still in the first is drama, on my opinion, in some degree, large number of dialogues justified, but too sluggish and gloomy they were. The film, which combines in itself the Western and the drama, my favorite, I usually these films aim to avoid.

The atmosphere of the 19th century passed, not bad, not caught his eyes bloopers and inconsistencies. It happens a few years after the lifting of the African Americans the status of "slave", but living next to whites, common people still not considered them on the former pretending to be those people are second-class citizens. In this is the main essence of the picture — prove the same black people as all others. I would also like to note the fact that too often in the movie sounded the word "nigger".

The actors played great, and this is the main plus of the film. David Gyasi in the role of the black Deputy looked great, it was evident his desire character to prove the right to be in the same ranks with white, already his eyes burned. It partner the search for a dangerous criminal was character Ron Perlman, actor with incredible charisma and a rather repulsive appearance. In fact, it is this looks made it so memorable an actor that not even the roles have been memorable. Recalled immediately Alien 4, blade 2 and certainly Hellboy, in which he with his looks it looks very convincing, much better than the new cast. Exactly zero claims. The role of the antagonist was performed by Frank Grillo, the actor from I wonder what you might say. The main part of his films outright sleaze, but the advantages of his beautiful game it is not erases. And much better to play it has negative heroes (War wolves 2, All leads to Donnybrook) and just a bad tough guys (the purge of 2.3, In focus). Positive role (Violence, TV series Escape) do it is not the example of the worse emotions and transfer all kinds of feelings — is a little it. In this tape, he has once again proven their skill in a negative role.

It is difficult to get pleasure from view this picture, but and call it completely useless too, at least out of respect for the actors who pulled the film as could. So thank you for viewing is going, decide for yourself who are interested in the genre or the very essence of the film. Little action, but still the interest is there to what is happening, yeah and the ending was pretty strong. The average quality of the tape, which you can safely skip past.
