Audience Reviews for Aces 'N' Eights
Put your hand up on the log. I won't ask again. A local village that keeps to themselves and is fairly self sufficient is invaded by ruthless railroad outlaws that want to pave tracks through the land. The land owners are initially passive but when family and children get pushed around, the villagers may push back. "You can all go now because we have nothing more to talk about." Craig Baxley, director of Action Jackson, Dark Angel, Stone Cold, Twilight Man, Bad Day on the Block, Deep Red, Twisted Desire, and Sniper 2, delivers Aces 'N' Eights. The storyline for this picture is very mediocre but there are some good shootouts here and there. The acting is made for television average and the cast includes Casper Van Dien, William Atherton, Jeff Kober, Ernest Borgnine, and Bruce Boxleitner. "You sure do promote a hell of a brawl." This was recommended to me by Fios so I decided to DVR it. This was a below average western with little going for it. There were some good one liners here and there and the shootouts weren't horrible, but I wouldn't call this a worthwhile addition to the genre. I recommend skipping this. "Are you going to listen to us or threaten us?" Grade: D
OK, so I knew this movie was going to be rotten, after it all it was a "blockbuster exclusive release" which I guess means it was a movie that sucked to bad to actually be released into a theater, so it went straight to video. [i] So, it was unbelievable that the star of this thing was Bruce Boxleitner, a heavy hitter I'll admit, I mean who could forget his Bobby Joe in "Sixpack Annie". A real gem........Or, his Lee Stetson in "The scarecrow and Mrs King" a true monument in television entertainment. Enough said, I'm sure Bruce is a great guy, but this movie is something you should show your grandparents as they are drifting off to sleep on the couch on a Tuesday night. Don't bother pausing this one when you have to use the head, you won't have missed much. Sorry Bruce, lookin forward to Tron the movie [/i]
The director has a different visual style. Occasionally his tilted camera angles was distracting. the violent scenes of the railroad enforcers terrorizing the families were too many and went on too long. Connections/relations/conflicts between other characters could have been developed more and the script needed more work.
