Vanity project that borrows heavily from Clint Eastwood films ...
28 December 2013 | by merklekranzSee all my reviews

Robert Ginty doing a fair imitation of Clint Eastwood's "Man With No Name", drifts into a small corrupt town. Think "A Fistful of Dollars". Immediately in trouble with the law his pocket watch with a history is taken by Tom Badal, the evil sheriff. Checking into a hotel, Ginty scares off the rightful guest to free up the room. Think "For a Few Dollars More". Towards the end, Ginty fashions himself an armored vehicle. Think "The Gauntlet". This easily could have substituted horses for cars and been a western. Kathy Shower lusts after Ginty for the entire film, which makes the movie feel like nothing more than a vanity project. If you like mindless mayhem, with zero logic, then by all means seek out "Out on Bail", but be prepared for a real "brain drain". - MERK
