      Well after all the previews and all the hype, I'll have to say that I was somewhat disappointed with this movie. Although seeing Peter Fonda in a movie was nice, and I really do think Russell Crowe can play a western character very well. (and I hope to see him in more westerns), the movie was just a bit too much on the dialogue and not enough on the action. The ending however does pick it up a bit however and yes, the ending was not what I had expected. There is a twist and no, I won't give it away. Overall, I'd probably give it a 5 out of 10. Not a bad movie, just not what I expected.

      Now I guess I'll wait for Comanche Moon.
      Stay thirsty my friends.

      I picked up my copy from the video store tonight after I prepurchased it the other day. I haven't seen it yet and may have to wait until the weekend or maybe Friday night to see it. I saw the original one, so I am looking forward to seeing and reading your comments are interesting. No one mention the comparison of the two, so I guess when I see it I will compare the two. Stay tuned.

      Cheers :cool: Hondo

      Although there are plot similarities. there are also many differences in the two films. I liked them both and would be hard pressed to pick my favorite. Russell Crowe is one of my favorite actors of the new generation, whereas Glenn Ford was a favorite of the older generation. I think in both the old and new versions, the bad guys have the most interesting characterizations.

      The newer version has a run time of 122 minutes while the other version has only 97 minutes. I guess the newer one has more action scenes. I have seen the one with Glen Ford. Can't wait to see the other. Maybe on Firday.

      I finally watched the movie Friday. I liked it fine. I like the original better, but this one is good. The acting is really good. Just too much violence, and a little unrealistic. But I will keep it and see it again and again.

      As I watched it again last night some thoughts came to mind but I don't want to spoil it for those who haven't seen it yet. Suffice to say, I thought that at a few points in the film that things could have turned out far different then they did.
