Dead Man's Bounty, 2005 film
It opens with people lying on the ground near a lake. All dead? One man is carried away. Elsewhere a man carves a figure in the sand with the scabbard of a sword. A man enters a bar, he is blindfolded with leather goggles. This building has openings in the walls, like a barn. There is rain outside the Sheriff's Office. Elsewhere men laugh at a woman. A man brings in a wanted poster, but the Sheriff is a week's ride away. There are more strange events. Do they make sense to you? [Is this a bunch of lunatics who have escaped from an asylum?] The next morning a man leaves from the second story of a building. Another man points a pistol at a man with a rifle. "Drop the gun!" He does and it goes off wounding a man. There are more shots and men fall.
The next morning men ride out in pursuit of the man who got away. "No hanging without a trial." Is that man turning back? "We'll cut him off at the pass." "Do you know what that means?" "Absolutely nothing." [I'm not making this up.] They see a shack. A bloody man counts his bullets. [Does anything here make sense to you?] The men are riding further and further away from town. Another man is beaten. [Senseless violence again.] A man falls off his horse; only four are left. "Where are those tracks?" There is a shack alongside a railway. A man chops wood. Are those riders going in a circle? [Does that symbolize this movie? Can those men go on without food and water?] "It's the Sheriff's horse." A man asks for a drink. A train whistle sounds. That woman talks about her expectations. Her scars will be kissed. The man chopping wood makes a mistake and screams.
Would this movie get any better? I didn't think so and changed to another station. It is way too bad to be considered a parody of anything. The low budget for this film can be deduced from the limited number of actors, the cheap sets, and the script. A good story makes a good movie, this is like a collection of scenes produced and assembled by lunatics at random. Who wasted money on this project? I wish I could award this movie a negative rating.
