not so great
I live in Yuma, Arizona, where much of the movie was filmed. It was a thrill to have a production here, and the premier packed in a crowd (including myself) at an older downtown theater. A friend had a role as an extra, and enjoyed the experience. But the first scene contained unnecessary violence, and later came a very brief but equally unnecessary graphic sex episode. Although several notable locals including a former county sheriff had bit parts, it was very quiet after the premier showing. I think most people were embarrassed. That's what we get for living in a backwater, fit for the straight-to-video market. The title montage was well done, with the dramatic approach of a summer dust storm that captured local flavor.
