Audience Reviews for The Culpepper Cattle Co.


Pappy Bob's pedestrian opinion: I like westerns. In this one, we ride along on the standard western cattle drive with all the ups and downs found along the trail. If you like westerns, you will like The Culpepper Cattle Company.

:fresh: :fresh: :fresh: (out of four) [color=cyan]Violent and gritty, this fairly successful western creates a great mood and style with a routinely fair plot.[/color] [color=#00ffff][/color] [color=#00ffff]A teenager in the old west wants to be a cowboy. He leaves home when Frank Culpepper agrees to hire him for a cattle drive to Colorado. The mystique quickly wears off as the young man sees the frontier as it really is.[/color] [color=#00ffff][img][/img][/color] [color=#00ffff]The film tries hard to emmulate Sam Peckinpah's newer vision of the west. Well shot and decently paced, the film is a little too thoughtful for its own good. Still, a pretty good effort.[/color]

Another gritty American western that owes more to the growing use of cocaine, than any 70s spirit of auteur-ism. A movie where everyone who comes on screen either gets a hard stare or guns pointed at them. A lot get shot with squibs of bright red peckinpah blood. Overall, alright.
