Along the way, they are pursued by bounty hunter Kiefer (Lee Van

Audience Reviews for Take a Hard Ride (Kid Vengeance)

Another Movie From the Mill Creek Mean Guns Twenty Pack. Like most movies from Mill Creek the video quality was very poor. But where can you get 20 movies for $5.99. This movie has about as many different names as it has people in the movie. When the spaghetti western genre died in Italy, spaghetti western star Lee Van Cleef went to Israel and made a couple of westerns there, "God's Gun" and "Kid Vengeance", which I just watched. It's a pretty cheap-looking affair - producers Menahem Golan and Yoram Globus were pinching pennies even back then. But despite the low budget, the movie is surprisingly involving. It's surprisingly grim, with Van Cleef making a great villain. Surprisingly, a lot of the grimness comes from Leif Garrett, who you may not believe is quite good as an innocent youth who is so traumatized by the murder of his parents that he starts to hunt down and kill (in sometimes brutal ways) the gang members responsible. Jim Brown is also good in a sympathetic role, one that refreshingly doesn't make his race an issue. Maybe this isn't a fabulous western, but if you are a fan of European westerns, chances are you'll find this kosher western very entertaining. 3 Stars 2-14-14
