May 10, 2012
Too many characters and not enough time in which to deal with them, and action that seems so rushed to get to the end that important scenes are left out.

A lot of care and attention were obviously devoted to selecting locations, designing sets, and grooming handlebar mustaches. Much less attention went to making one believe that any of the events took place circa 1879.

Highly stylized fashion-wise but awkwardly unfocused in its plotlines, it aims for the western iconography of Sam Peckinpah and Sergio Leone but never gets past its own directorial hurdles.

Plays like a three-hour rough cut that's been trimmed down to a slightly shorter rough cut.
