From Jan Kounen, the French director of the violent cult actioner Dobermann, comes this loose adaptation of Jean "Mobius" Giraud's comic series Blueberry. Vincent Cassel stars as Mike Blueberry, a lawman whose past comes back to haunt him when his town is invaded by the nefarious Blount (Michael Madsen), the man responsible for his first love's murder. Led by a German con man by the name of Prosit (an unrecognizable Eddie Izzard), Blount and his crew search for an ancient treasure buried deep within Indian tribal grounds, while Blueberry and his Indian friend Runi (Temuera Morrison) race to keep the land sacred and stop the thieves by any means possible. Featuring Juliette Lewis and her father, Geoffrey Lewis, in supporting roles, the film sports a solid American cast that boasts an additional performance by Colm Meaney and a rare appearance by none other than Ernest Borgnine. … More

It's "bad art," they'll say. That's fine, for the rest of us there's always a haven in the appreciation of "bad art."
I hereby propose to close the voting for the Raspberry awards 2004, and incidentally rebaptise them the 'Blueberry awards'. What a mess.
Audience Reviews for Renegade
Take out the enhanced computer graphics and you have a decent western, This would have been much better on the big screen, Not sure why some parts were added. Seems all modern day westerns have to have effects added that really have nothing to do with the story or the time period. Still its worth 3 starsMore
Odd one this. It?s got a fantastic cast, mind you, not everyone is on good form. Izzard is good, Madsen and Cassel are ok, Morrison gets the job done, Lewis should stick to singing and quite frankly I wanted to see so much more of Borgnine and Hounsou, who where the best characters but had the least amount of screen time. I liked the cowboy and Indian bits and I liked what they did with the SFX, it?s just that there was far too much of it towards the end. It went a little too 'Lawn Mower man' for my tastes but it?s not a bad film.More
