Movie Info

His in-laws brutally murdered and his life-long best friend convicted of committing the unforgivable crime, a conflicted deputy agrees to escort the condemned man to the gallows as a group of ruthless killers attempts to ensure that they never reach their intended destination. As Deputy John Cooper (Justin Kreinbrink) struggles with his desire to exact personal justice against his mute friend Martin Lowery (Kevin Market) during their trip to Lowery's appointment with the hangman, the sudden appearance of some sadistic bandits leads the lawman to suspect that things may not be what they appear. As the truth about the heinous double homicide slowly comes to light, Deputy Cooper gradually begins to realize that Lowery harbors a secret that some believe is worth killing for.

Audience Reviews for The Decoy

This is basically a one-man show; Justin Kreinbrink wrote, directed and "starred" in this misnamed Western. It should have been called The Dupe or The Goat or any other synonym for fall guy. Decoy is not one of those. The story is decent. Maybe if Kreinbrink had some backing and real actors this would have been worthwhile. As is, the acting is so bad you wind up laughing and shaking your head at incidents that are not funny in the least. Skip it.

This is the Western bad enough to make me start getting rid of some of my collection. Why keep trash? Bad acting, unconvincing characters (especially McDaniel as Herb), and one of those stories I've come to hate where people could easily prevent a problem situation if they would just communicate. Write it down for God's sake! Whoa is me. Boo hoo. I just don't care anymore. Did I mention unconvincing acting?
