Critic Reviews for Gunfighter's Moon

All Critics (1)

Lance Henriksen makes a great antihero in this surprisingly good pastiche of classical Western elements. Makes up for in sincerity what it lacks in originality.

Audience Reviews for Gunfighter's Moon

160704: I have loved Lance Henriksen since his Millennium days. When his character, Frank Morgan, first stands up in this film, he makes the ultimate gunfighter. A great outfit, white over black, with a dual pistol rig and large stainless knife. Then Morgan speaks and I just lost faith. You know that feeling, when an actor tries to be too cool and overplays his part? Well, that's what happened here. Then, as he exits the bar, Morgan misses his first attempt at re-holstering. Damn. Cool dog though. The next scene, Frank wakes up in a fit making a gun with his right hand and index finger. Am I to believe he was dreaming and instincts are so strong he makes this gesture? If he did, you'd think the index finger would be bent as if on a trigger. Am I being too critical? I could go on. I just want so badly for this film to be good and it's not. With many flaws, the worst being approximately 14 shots out of a 6 gun (I can't even pretend Morgan changed hands), I still like Gunfighter's Moon. The story is a good idea, and Henriksen is a favorite, so I tolerate the mistakes. Similar to how I feel about Los Locos (1997). Anyway, Gunfighter's Moon is worth watching. There are some good, fun action scenes; I especially like when Frank is blindsided by the assassin. I own and have seen this film at least three times and see no reason to tell people to stay away. If you're a western fan, don't think too much and it will suffice. A biased 3. Have fun.
