User Reviews: Well, it seems that all women on a path to stardom have to go through this, a cheap revenge movie. I think this actress has a future, and I suppose she knew that this would be a risk. The movie itself is unremarkable. What is mildly interesting is the setup. The movie wants to be a western, but it gets there by a strange setup.

An event in the future creates a Mad Max environment, that just happens to have Western sets, produce cowboy guns and cowboy-like dynamics and costumes, and get this, a silver mine with old fashioned gear and dynamite. The only difference is an air pollution that requires the bad guys to wear filter masks that resemble the bandanas of original movie westerns.

Why? What is gained by giving a familiar setting by such a strained setup? Let’s assume it was designed and the intent was to make the story we see more real by contrasting to the setup which is goofy and fakey.

And you know, it works, sort of — making this seem less terrible than it is.

You can do something better with your time.
