I don’t really have a lot to say about this movie. Not because it was so bad, it was okay, but for I’m still trying to figure out what the heck I watched.
The Legend of God’s Gun seems to be an homage to the spaghetti western and more specifically to the 1976 movie God’s Gun. I’m not sure about that last part, but the plots seem vaguely similar. But the filming style and post production work does create a pretty reasonable spaghetti western look and the soundtrack, though decidedly more now than past, works with the feature.
Problem is I didn’t realize recreational pharmaceuticals were necessary in order to keep up with what’s going on. The dialogue sure wasn’t helping. Neither was the surreal music video that seems to happen partway through.
This reminds me of House of a Thousand Corpses but not in a good way. Rob Zombie’s first for foray into writing/directing looked like a kid in a visual effects candy store. Not using something because it was good but because it was there, ruining what had the potential to be a good movie. But he got better. My hope is that the same is true for writer/director Mike Bruce. But I need a break before seeing anything else of his, this made my head hurt.
