Critic Reviews for A Gunfight
Great names (Douglas and Cash) do not a great western necessarily make. This is definitely not a great oater.
Audience Reviews for A Gunfight
120826: This is a neat film for multiple reasons. First off, it is the first mainstream American movie to be produced by an Indian tribe, the Jicarilla Apaches of New Mexico. And, in no way is it a commentary on the condition of American first nations. It's a western, speaking more on society's thirst for violence and, perhaps, what midlife crisis would be for aging gunfighters. Keith Carradine makes a short, cool and exciting appearance and you get to see what the results would for either combatant had they won, regardless of who actually wins. The only aspect I did not like is Johnny Cash (show me some musician who's done as good job as an actor).
A clip from this film featuring Johnny Cash as Abe Cross saying "You stay the hell away from me, ya hear?" is featured in Cash's widely acclaimed final music video "Hurt". Kirk Douglas' son is played by his real life son Eric Douglas (1958-2004).
