"Small town in the Wild West is attacked by poisonous snakes."
Billy Drago is funny - not funny ha ha. It's not bad that he's bad. I'd just like to see him do something else beside same guy he played in The Untouchables. I bet he'd be good at being good. I cast him as an absent minded professor. Then he'd be funny ha ha.
So this thing was filmed in Bulgaria. I shot a film there with Dolph Lundgren many years ago. What a great place to make movies!
Honestly, I'm at a bit of loss here on this one. The production value was fine. The acting was a over the top but I feel pretty safe suggesting this was a choice from the director. They didn't take themselves too seriously - though I suspect some will thing they did.
The CGI was weak. I can't get too excited about that.
It always lifts my eyebrow a notch or two whenever the old west is portrayed as this crazy place where if you didn't like someone you just shot him and the cowardly sheriff - or no sheriff at all looked the other way. It simply was nothing like that. Again - who cares. We can all suspend our disbelief on this count.
But there's nothing even close to a single scare in the whole film. There's a few chuckles and some groan out loud moments.
The doc (and one or two others) who keeps spewing out the bible verse with a deadly serious delivery gets a bit tired. I suspect it was meant to be funny. It's not.
But really the movie is watchable.
I'm going to give it 2 Bloody Eyes out of 5 but it was close to getting a 2.5
