Audience Reviews for Blood on the Moon

140514: Good and bad. Some great camera work makes parts of this movie very impactful. The first 30 minutes had me thinking I'd add this film to my collection. Then we get into a cattle stampede and up pops some pretty hooky horse-gun fight scenes. Yikes, they were bad. Mitchum was a bit too stoic but totally remind me of Jean Reno in The Professional, a movie that I continue to enjoy to this day. Forced, happy ending. Too bad because it was looking so good.
