I have to admit I was not glued to the screen for this one. It looked like it might be good. But it just felt flat and sterile. Kind of like a diet soda. It's all there but something tells you its not the real thing. The story was OK, pretty typical. visually it is again passing. The acting is flat and the characters are hard to care about. It does try to be clever and have cool memorable lines but it comes of forced. Things like the firearms having no visible recoil is annoying. Maybe that is nitpicky but this is a moving about gun fighting. It makes the weapons seem impotent/harmless. If you have ever fired a single action .45 i'm sure you'll agree with my observation. "I want you to see this live!" compared to what? I'm pretty sure everything people saw back then was "live". Anyway, I guess I can't say don't watch it. Give it a try. It just did not work for me. Good modern westerns = Tombstone, Unforgiven, even Wyatt Erp, etc. This is far far away from those.
