Plot:

The line between the good guys and the bad guys blurs as ruthless bounty hunters No Name (Chris Northup) and Dynamite Davenport (Rich Ting) shoot their way through the Wild West, collecting rewards and making more enemies than friends. With the outlaw John Wilkes Booth on the run and gold hidden in the hills, justice must be served.

Reviews:

” …the feature looks and feels like an old movie print. The action never stops, and new characters pop up all the way through, sometimes literally popping up out of a trunk or from behind a wall, always heavily armed. Aside from being non-stop, the violence is quite bloody […] Ting and Northup make a great buddy team, skillfully playing off one another with snappy dialogue and friendly jabs.” 8/10 Film Threat

“While the chemistry between the leading pair is fun with Chris Northup and Rich Ting, bringing everything to the roles, the rest of the story does feel like it does drag along without much happening […] this is an entry that wants to help build future adventures, so we don’t get the biggest bit of peril along the way either.” Movies Review 101

“One big problem is the film’s effects […] Unfortunately, the props are so fake looking they’re laughable rather than shocking. […] director Errol Sack does know how to stage a decent gunfight and, along with his co-writers Clint Lilley and Steven Shaffer works them into a plot that never really takes itself too seriously and tosses several outrageous twists at the viewer.” 2.5/5 Voices from the Balcony
