To be fare he does try to add some of his usual flair ,but the story is dead in the water and apart From Anthony Quinn the acting is terrible.
Costner is way out of his depth here as he swiches from poster boy to bearded killer and failing to be convincing as either ,his acting is so stupid your quite gald when one of the bad guys breaks his fingers.
It also seems that Scott has been watching too much Peckinpah as he fils his film with stock Mexican Cliches which of course fail to engage in the way they do in Peckinpah movies.
The ending is a huge let down and by the end i was bored out of my skull.
If you want a better revenge film by the same director watch the masterful Man On Fire by the same director.
As for this lets just call in a large blip on Scotts movie career radar.
A dog in every sense of the word
