Not great but sometimes funny
During the Civil War, John Slaughter witnesses a massacre committed by Jack Pickett and others. Among the dead is 12-year-old Savanah. Twenty years later, John helps defeat a gang that is terrorizing a town which most people have abandoned. Afterward, he is told that his father has died and Pickett has taken over the town of Ghost Rock. John returns to the town where his father was respected and finds a Chinese family is being mistreated. He was good friends with these people at one time and tries to help them and the other people living under Pickett's rule, but his efforts make Jack Pickett mad. A tough but beautiful mystery girl who looks like Bo Derek as Calamity Jane shows up to help make peace in the town. Her name is Savanah; does that really mean the little girl actually survived the massacre? Or is she a ghost? There is evidence for both views.

Eventually those troublemakers John dealt with earlier come to Ghost Rock and make more trouble.

The best thing about this movie was Cherokee Bill, the movie's comic relief. Craig Wasson does a very good job with Pickett's moronic lackey.

And Jenya Lano is much more than a pretty face. She does a good job and her character can really take care of herself.

The movie also has occasional comic moments. And there is a romance which is sort of pleasant. Actually, I suppose John and Savanah come close to being a couple, but John likes one of the ... working girls.

Other than that, I suppose the fighting was good. With Chinese involved, this is kind of a martial arts western, but nowhere near the quality of "Shanghai Noon".

There were two songs with the closing credits. "Follow the Light" by Melanie Monroe was not at all appropriate because it emphasized technology over substance. The other was a good country song that fit perfectly, even though the style might not have existed in 1882.

But be sure to watch the closing credits because numerous cast and crew photos show these people had a good time making this movie.

It wasn't a complete waste of time.
