A good-natured, if laconic, oater that rides along nicely on the screen persona of writer/actor Paul Hogan.

The film has no internal comic rhythm to match its faltering sense of humor. Much of the time, it plods along like a mediocre conventional western.

Lightning Jack feels like a film you might stumble across late at night on the USA Network.

It's impossible to dislike Paul Hogan, and almost as hard to like his movies. They're as goodhearted as they are simple-minded.

Hogan should hang up his spurs until a truly original impulse comes along.
