Audience Reviews for Gang of Roses
Costumes all wrong for a western. 120219: The sequel almost killed killed me so I thought I'd go back and see what spawned it. The child was much worse than its parent. Though it'll never be a classic, at least this one has some production values. Better sound, a story that makes more sense, better acting and the added bonus of an awfully strange little additional clip before the credits. Oh yeah, why did Maria lever the rifle twice before shooting at the sheriff? One wasted cartridge. I hate these little errors.
A kind of blingy, over the top MTV style cowgirl flick aimed at a young black audience which again takes the notion used in the brat pack western 'Young Guns'. The cast is includes some popular singers such as Bobby Brown and Lil' kim which does give an indication of what to expect really. The action along with the films look is slightly cheap and basic looking, poor stunts, silly costumes and on the whole generally unrealistic and silly overall. I can't put the film down for this as its clear from the start what the film aims to be, its almost comicbook-like and not to be taken seriously but at the same time the cast do really try their best which does make them look rather daft hehe. Full of your regular western cliches adding nothing new and trying a bit too hard to be a slick action film.
GAWD awful. But I should've known better. I already knew what I was gettin' myself into when I read the premise of this movie and I saw who was in it. I love LisaRaye and Stacie Dash. I even listen to Lil' Kim sporadically. But together in this hot mess, and with the out-of-nowhere Mario Van Peebles cameo? What? He enjoyed doing "Posse" so much he just couldn't stay away from westerns? Ugh. And I really knew I was setting myself up for awfulness upon learning during the opening credits that Bobby "Whitney-introduced-me-to-crack" Brown was in it. Just awful all around. Horrid plot, horrid acting, horrid transitions, pointless slow motion scenes, pointless walking scenes, pointless riding scenes, pointless "love" scene, just pointless all around. If you see this film on your channel guide, run the other way!!
