“Royals’ Revenge is an excellently-performed bit of indie fare for fans of Westerns and revenge stories. The drama is amply topped off by introspective and intense dialogue moments, and tremendous screen chemistry among the toplining cast…” Film Combat Syndicate
” …a solid piece of western cinema that contains tons of action but at the same time is character-driven and chooses narrative tension over pure spectacle invariably, and it doesn’t go for “updating” the genre or give things a post-modernist spin, nor does it try the tongue-in-cheek approach. And a solid directorial effort along with an able cast make this into a very cool piece of genre cinema,…” Search My Trash
“The action scenes we do get are a nicely staged mix of gunfights, brawls and even a bare-knuckles boxing match. The climactic showdown between the Royals and Slade and his men is a solid note for Road to Revenge to end on. […] Unfortunately, the attempts at character-driven scenes between the bursts of violence don’t work nearly as well.” Voices from the Balcony
