Sixgun (2010/Lionsgate DVD)


Picture: D     Sound: C+     Extras: D     Film: B-


Three cowboys are found dead and Tommy's ranch is about to be foreclosed.  Desperately in need of cash Tommy consents to do a 'job', to take down bandit that has recently come into a bit of cash and take his money, but things go from bad to worst when they find out they are not the only ones after the cash and particularly who the cash belonged to, the town gangster.  Things get ugly and personal when he wants Tommy and his boys six feet under, but Tommy isn't the type to wait for death... he brings death with him.
Tommy is an ex-gunslinger, tired of shooting and fighting he retires, opens a ranch and even has a son, but when the times get tough he falls back on his former occupation, for this 'one last job'.  Taking money that's already stolen isn't a crime, right?  But things don't always go as planned when the local mobster finds out Tommy's involvement and sets up for a showdown, 3 men versus an entire gang.
Get ready for the old west, there is no law but what you make from the end of your gun barrel.  There is no 'real' good guy, everyone who carries a gun is out to kill somebody, it's just a matter of who and when. But the show makes you want to root for the underdog, Tommy.  He want to live peacefully, but he is like ex-mobster who wants out, problem some how he always finds a gun in his hand, but with a ranch, family waiting for him at least he has something to fight for.  The film's plot and story was ok, but a lot of the characters costuming looked a just too bit clean and new, you could tell this film was shot quickly because the lack of background characters and townsfolk.  This was shot in the Super 16mm film format, but the makers manipulated the image way too much instead of leaving it alone, but the Dolby Digital sound is good enough.  Extras include commentary the director and trailer gallery.
