Audience Reviews for Powderkeg


55/100. RT has the title wrong, it is one word.."Powderkeg". This television made western isn't too bad, but its TV roots are very evident. This was actually a pilot for a potential series that never materialized. It's main flaw is that it makes extremely little attempt to capture the era in which it was filmed. Rod Taylor and Fernando Lamas do a good job acting, the rest of the cast is fair, but Dennis Cole is way out of place and does not do very well. Good photography, some decent action sequences.
