Goofs

During the gallows scene, when the Indian Wife is loading the rifle, she is placing the cartridge into the top of the tubular magazine with the bullet pointing down. The rifle is an 1860 Henry so the magazine must be loaded from the top with the bullet end up, or it will not chamber into the breech of the rifle. See more »

It's Jackie Chan! (again...)
7 June 2000 | by jamesdutczakSee all my reviews

Jackie Chan is a master martial artist and stuntman. Every film he stars in is an exercise in demonstrating his skill in different, creative ways. If you go to see this movie expecting anything different, you'll be sorely disappointed.

However, if you're a Chan fan, prepare to be amazed once again. It's not the same spectacle one would find in previous works such as Rumble in the Bronx, but impressive nevertheless. Furthermore, the plot that ties these action sequences together is better than can be found in most films of the same genre. The clash between far east and wild west cultures and cinematographic stereotypes is amusing enough to keep the film entertaining throughout, and Chan's own tongue-in-cheek sense of humor makes the piece that much more delightful to watch.

Don't look for this one at the next Academy Awards, but then that's not what Jackie Chan is all about, is it. If you want a couple of hours of mindless entertainment and spectacle, this is the one to see.
