When a deputized gunslinger takes up the call to hunt down the last Cowboy, the chase is on and the bullets fly and only one of these hardened men can survive…
” …the various gunfights are well enough staged for a low-budget film like A Tale of Two Guns […] the characters talk too much, launching into long speeches at the most inappropriate of times […] Justin Lee has managed to make a film that, while still not in a league with the Spaghetti Westerns of the 60s and early 70s was at least entertaining enough to keep me watching.” Voices from the Balcony
