Lone Rider (2007/RHI/Genius DVD)


Picture: C+     Sound: C+     Extras: D     Telefilm: D



Lou Diamond Phillips returns to the Western years after the underrated success of Young Guns only to fire blanks with Lone Rider, another RHI-produced genre disaster as he plays a former soldier trying to find closure with the past and finding he’ll have to shoot his way out of it.


Too bad this is so tired and clichéd, but it is and Phillips is wasted along with Stacey Keach and Vincent Spano, but it is immediate that this is some kind of tired package deal and that is what you get.  If you see this one, let it ride out of town, because it deserves to be left alone.


The anamorphically enhanced 1.78 X 1 image is a little soft and likely shot in HD of some kind, but it also makes the West look too clean for its own good; a problem not reserved for just this production.  The Dolby Digital 5.1 Stereo is weak and is definitely nothing special, even with the music and there are no consistent surrounds.  There are no extras, but that is no surprise.
