Critic Reviews for The Villain
Reclicando as velhas e mais do que conhecidas gags do Papa-Léguas, este desastre vale apenas pela linda Ann-Margret e pela agilidade impressionante de Douglas aos 63 anos de idade.
Audience Reviews for The Villain
It's as silly as they come, this effort by Hal Needham, and you'll wonder what inducement served to bring Kirk Douglas and Ann Margret onboard this kiddie humor smorgasbord. Douglas spends most the film talking to his horse. .. and the horse gets all of the best lines.
The plot? A lot of money is traveling cross country. Get the money. That's it.
There's a snicker or two but ultimately it's a film that makes you mad cause it's so dumb.
This is supposed to be like a live-action Road Runner
cartoon as Kirk Douglas' character is a version of Wile E. Coyote. Good funny comedy-western that brings good laughs.
Called "Cactus Jack" in the UK. Absolutely bizarre comic western, shot in a loony tunes style. Arnie is even more wooden than usual, and I couldn't quite believe Kirk Douglas got involved with this. Ann Margret looks nice though, and kids will probably get some enjoyment out of it.
