This oater with shades of Weird West comic books has a plot too easy to foretell and a thrill level that dips with the rising of the body count.

A revenge-fantasy Western that wants to luxuriate in its B-movie roots but suffers from dull direction and an even duller central performance.

It bludgeons with intent, even dabbling in some "Deadwood"-level verbal shock-and-awe; without wit or intelligence, it's merely baroque affectation playacting at depth.

As violent act begets silly exchange begets another violent act, "Sweetwater" squanders its noteworthy resources ...

There are worse ways to spend 90 minutes than with a mediocre Western.

A handsomely designed, occasionally funny but ultimately empty female vengeance yarn.

Boasting a script ripe with overwrought, pseudo-Deadwood dialogue, Sweetwater provides three roles enticing enough to have attracted thesps deserving of better material.
