Booker's critique on the money!
16 September 2005 | by john_c_calhounSee all my reviews

Booker's critique of Deadman's Revenge was right on the money! I own a videotape of this film and have watched it many times and indeed, the character actors of Booker the Piano Player and Polsen the Bartender are both unique and depict the people who inhabited the Old West so accurately and look as though they were lifted from the photographs of the U.S. South West of the late 19th Century. Michael Ironside played his role extremely well and it was a surprise to see him as the "good guy" for a change! Randy Travis added luster to this film well directed by Levi who also directed other memorable films and t.v. series, Doug McClure was superb in his role though short it was, he got the most of it and ended an unsurpassed career , especially in Westerns. Vondie Kurtis Hall added the African-American cowboy element left out of earlier Westerns. Like Herb Jeffries, Hall contributed a realistic image of the black cowboy. Oscar Micheaux would have been proud of him! The twists and turns were really great and held me in suspense when I saw it for the first time and was amazed at the transformation of the main character played by Michael Ironside from a youthful man with a full head of hair to a mature man who was unashamed of going bald. Bruce Dern was excellent as usual and knows how to portray the "bad guy." I'd highly recommend this film to all Western fans for its realistic portrayal of the Old West! I buy copies of the video and give them to friends and relatives as Christmas stocking fillers and for gifts at Channuka and Kwaanza too! If you see this video on sale, buy it because when you go back after deciding, it'll be gone and in some other luck soul's video collection. Hope it comes out on DVD soon! Booker had it right!
