A civil war spy flick boasting some serious action and acrobatics. Union agent Chris Tanner has thirty days to find the missing Doctor Gatling and his gun before another man is hanged and his own name is disgraced. Disbelief aside, the film brings a fresh look at a saturated genre. The plot is a bit odd, the man suspected of stealing the gun is sent to retrieve it and is told to return or else somebody will have to die in his place. But disbelief aside, Tanner proves to be a one capable dude. He murders pretty much everyone that gets in his way and beds several women while he's at it. All the cornerstones of homicide are covered, Tanner cracking skulls mano a mano with his judo chops and hammer fists of fury are the perfect complement to the rapid fire pistol work and gatling gun fire in other scenes. The anachronistic, gratuitously slathered organ jam session that fades in and out works perfectly. The most amusing scene involves Tanner inviting himself into the home of the man he has traded places with and subsequently being dragged fromm the back of a horse around the homestead by the man's angry brother for no less than five minutes. This must have been what Henry Winkler was watching before he jumped the shark.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
