18 September 1999 | sally-13
A western that combines fictional and real life western characters
Jack McCall Desperado is an interesting varient on the western story. It deals with the war of independence and the character of Jack McCall wrongly accused of being a spy.

Wild Bill Hickcock also makes an appearance as the friend of Jack's crooked cousin Bart.

The interesting blend of real people we have all heard of and their fictional and real lives make this a movie a little different from the ordinary western fair.

Also refreshingly different is the relationship between Rose, a girl who can take care of herself ie she holds up the jail to rescue Jack and tumbles from horses with a certain aplomb also!

All in all an unusual western in some respects that doesn't forget its origins and stays mainly true to formula.
