Great concept and likeable characters, but the movie falls apart about midway through. It proceeds to go off in too many directions, and the ending was, sadly, anticlimactic. I had high hopes for the movie, but it did not deliver.
B movie. The acting is so bad and lack of direction. Everyone is awkward like they are confuse of what to do next.
What a terrible disappointment this film was. How do you take a fun and fairly unique idea of combining cowboys and witches and turn it into a dull, pointless story that brings nothing new to the table? It tried to have some kind of emotional core to it, but I just didn't care about anyone in this film nor what happened to them. There wasn't anything to these characters to care about. And everything about the witches was dull and cliche as hell. The score was excellent; I'd give it an extra half-skull for that. The rest was a bore.
Such a cozy movie, love falling asleep to this. Playing RDR2 and then popping this on to go to bed makes me want to be a cowboy.
not bad. not great. movie easily could have been 30 minutes shorter.
