Audience Reviews for The Kansan,(Wagon Wheels)


Overall a decent film. It's an uneasy mixture of almost every genre - Comedy, Western, Drama, Action, Romance, Musical. It t tries to tackle too much in it's short length. It was nominated for an Oscar for best score. No clue as to why, the score was hardly good. Very much a "B" movie.
