South of Heaven, West of Hell Reviews
Valentine Casey is a lawman in the west somewhere near Tucson, Arizona. His family is a band of ruthless outlaws that do as they please. His family unveil some skeletons in Casey's past that he prefer be kept in the closet. There appears to be only one way for Casey to handle his family, but could he really gun down his own blood?
"We're like brothers."
"Not by blood."
Dwight Yoakam delivers South of Heaven, West of Hell in his directorial debut (and only film on his resume). The storyline for this picture is just okay but contains unique and unpredictable characters. The settings, make-up/costumes, action, and dialogue were all disappointing. The cast was solid in name only as the cast includes Billy Bob Thornton, Vince Vaughn, Peter Fonda, Bo Hopkins, Bridget Fonda, and Michael Jeter.
"You reckon Chinese food is hot? I reckon we'll be eating a lot of that in San Francisco."
I DVR'd this picture when I was looking at Peter Fonda films and noticed this amazing cast (kind of a random group of actors). I had never heard of this film so I gave it a shot; unfortunately, this fell a bit flat. It tried to be unique and original but instead was clumsy and disappointing. Overall, I recommend skipping this picture.
"You damn bunch of inbred bitches."
Best avoided, though I think it could actually be fun to watch with a few friends and copious quantities of weed.
Despite having seasoned actors such as Luke Askew, Vince Vaughan, Bridget Fonda, Peter Fonda etc. They fail to prop up poor old Dwight who is about as convincing a hero as is Saddam working for Unicef.
Poor plot, very hammy and I was left dumbfounded how any film in this day and age could be so crap. The shootouts reminded me of kids in a playground.
Dwight - stick to singing!:rotten:
