Dead Man's Bounty (originally called Summer Love) is an artistic Western by Polish director/writer/producer Piotr Uklanski. This movie has a lot of Polish actors but is spoken in English. Quite a few of the characters speak with accent, which might seem annoying to some (I had trouble understanding what the Sheriff was saying most of the time). The story can be summarized as the stranger brings a dead man into town expecting to collect the bounty for him. Instead of a reward, the town folks start trouble and a gunfight with the stranger, and then pursue him.

No one is called by name in this story. The Sheriff is played by Boguslaw Linda. Linda is one of Poland's most famous contemporary actors and has worked with Poland's most renowned directors including Andrzej Wajda, Andrzej Zulawski and Jerzy Kawalerowicz. Katarzyna Figura, one of Poland's most known actresses, plays the Woman. Czech actor Karel Roden plays the Stranger. Val Kilmer plays the Dead Man. Unquestionably, Kilmer plays an unusual role and probably one that isn't as easy as it sounds (try not breathing or blinking).

Dead Man's Bounty is not your typical western but has elements typical of westerns. It captures a bit of grossness - we are not spared in how dirty and bloody they get and can only be thankful that we can't smell them. The film is artistic in its presentation and if one took just about any single shot from the movie, it may even pass off as art in itself. Now I admit a few parts are weird and may be a turn off for some but this just may be the artistic side of the film.

This movie has the tagline of being "The First Polish Western." Although Dead Man's Bounty isn't spoken in Polish, I can agree with the tagline to some degree.

HASH(0x9dc17f60) out of 5 stars Did Val Kilmer Lose a Bet? Sept. 2 2008
By pddaddy1959 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Apparently, you can't rate a movie zero stars. In light of this film, Amazon should reconsider that policy.
In my nearly-50 years, I have watched tens of thousands of movies. And yet I can't think of one that stunk as badly as this picture. The makers of this film try to pass off as "artsy" a film that has no plot, asinine dialogue, thoroughly detestable characters and an unredeemed attraction to gore and ugliness. Val Kilmer should be shot for real for lending his name and photo to this picture. Comparisons to Eastwood's spaghetti westerns are ludicrous.
Just poke yourself int the eye. You'll save a dollar and have essentially the same experience.

HASH(0x9d80181c) out of 5 stars PUTRID.. June 10 2009
By C. Jones - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
2 hours of watching a corpse that's all that Kilmer does in this entire movie is lay on the ground. He doesn't utter one word through the whole movie..But, they got to put his name and face on the cover so it would sell my dog could have played this part just as well probably for a lot less money.

HASH(0x9d809e94) out of 5 stars Effort to make a different western June 17 2008
By Roger Bagula - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Val Kilmer plays the dead man: the bounty on the wrong man
is to be paid for a drunken Sheriff and a bar maid, his Civil war bride.
All sorrow and blood for bounty.
A very black western that comes just short of an horror movie.
More blood and severed heads than I would ever like to see
again. We have no sympathy left for anyone by the happy ending.

HASH(0x9d61ee10) out of 5 stars Worst Western Ever!! Oct. 20 2013
By Acute Observer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
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.

HASH(0x9ea7bbf4) out of 5 stars If You Didn't Like It, I Hope You Saw It For Free. Nov. 25 2014
By ChiBob - Published on Amazon.com
First of all, for all the typically self-absorbed yankees, the film is a Polish product, not 'Russian'. A good amount of Slavic sarcasm was sown throughout the script, and those who didn't at least suspect the presence of humour might consider a lucrative, low-key second job as a cemetary headstone.

Second, while gold can sometimes be found on the very surface of this planet, available to those who are in the right place at the right time, and looking down at the proper instant, much more often we need to employ extreme means, take great risks, even sacrifice lives to bring the purest of the yellow stuff to hand. The same analogy can be applied to humor: there are the Steve Martins and G. Gordon Liddys, and then there are (were) the much more scarce and hard to mine Bill Hicks, Fr. Guido Sarducci (Don Novello), and Andy Kaufman.

There were subtle, hilarious moments in Dead Man's Bounty, but I fear tha Roman Polanski was right about the singular, ascerbic, often incomprehensible nature of the Polish character, especially where humour is concerned. It does astound me that the same people who worship the overrated rubber-mug Tarantino's 'gonzo humor' were not able to extract a few nuggets to laugh over from this wide Polish parody of the American/Italian pasta/TV dinner western. I might mean Hang 'Em High or I might be thinking of the tube's endless "Bonanza." Or worst of all, the terminally constipating "Gun Smoke." (Btw the USA's Food And Drug Administration once did consider requiring a pre-broadcast, on-screen black box warning to be aired before "Gun Smoke's weekly offering began to roll...cautioning the delicate and the elderly to have plenty of HOT prune juice within arm's reach just in case...)

But to return to "Bounty," Kilmer in particular must have had a hoot on the set of this one---how many viewers noticed that he did make an obvious, hard-to-miss PHYSICAL MOVEMENT, an actual roll to his left, about half way into the film? So, just to make if official, he DID 'act' in the story, and not just as a 'motionless corpse'. Possibly that one move had something to do with an obscure paragraph defining 'star.' 'extra' and 'cameo' roles, and the pay scales afforded all three by the union.

I laughed, often out loud, at the efforts and sound effects of the gallows builder. VERY Polish, that kind of furious-at-self/furious-at-world do-or-die construction undertaking. The heart of the Slav, like that of the gypsy, is a strange and thorny place indeed.
