Sentenced to eternity in hell he finds himself confronted by Satan himself (Rourke), offering a daring proposition: deliver the six souls of his former gang and he will escape damnation. With time running out, he sets out on a brutal rampage to avenge his own death.Written by

During firefights, the weapons of most oft the characters are changing between the cuts: As example: Guererro starts the fight with his special fantasy revolvers, in the next scene he holds two modern Magnum revolvers (either S & W or Colts). This happens in almost any shooting scene. See more »
I am not a huge fan of westerns, so imagine my surprise when I deeply enjoyed this movie. The last western that i enjoyed was Tombstone and don't get me wrong, this movie is no Tombstone but the camera work makes this movie visually enjoyable. Anthony Michael Hall played Red extremely convincingly and Mickey Rourke take as Satan was genuinely likable. Camera tricks, editing and sound made this movie enjoyable even though the plot was predictable. I also like that is was a new twist on the old revenge for death plots Westerns show. If you like movies with slick visual effects, then you will enjoy this. If your looking for great dialog and deep character development then you may want to save this one for a day you just want to be entertained.
