Good cast, ordinary western.

4 stars

What keeps this from getting 4.5 stars is that while the script is pretty good, it's just a bt too routine as far as the story goes. Everything else about this movie, however, is top notch. Just the cast alone makes this movie worth seeing. The fact that they all give good performances makes this even more worthwhile. The music and camera work as rousing and stunning, respectively, and the direction is not too shabby. Check this out if you can find it, it's good, solid, and fun action-packed entertainment with a good amount of humor to top it all off.
