Think River City sponsored by Carsberg Special.

(it) wrote: More like I Can See Poo. And the poo is this movie. Just terrible. We got about 20 minutes of movie and an hour and a half of padding. Plus acoustic guitar music straight from the bowels of hell. Maybe this was originally intended as a short film, but then was stretched well beyond he breaking point to make a feature. And I don't have a problem with slow moving movies, my love for Ti West's stuff and Gerry, etc, etc, but this is just plain boring. Nature footage and jump cuts do not make a movie. And that dreaded acoustic guitar. Seriously, avoid at all costs.

(mx) wrote: This is a film that had potential. It is a simple basic story of a ex-marine coming into a small town to visit a buddy and finds out he has gone missing. The town is run by a group of wealthy bigots who hate immigrants. Sort of like a Walking Tall meets Rambo type of film. Overall the film fails on many levels. The first is the action and fight scenes. They are not filmed very well. Very jumpy and do not flow well. Also some of the acting is not done well. Val Kilmer is the only bright spot in this. But even he could not save the film. Also Gary Cole and Jennifer Esposito are okay in their roles. Overall a disappointment.

(jp) wrote: Sam Whiskey is really the beginning of Burt Reynolds' rise to superstardom. He had also been bumming around doing episodes of various TV shows, but never got a real break as a leading man until Sam Whiskey came along. It wasn't enough to push him over the top, but it enough to get him noticed for bigger and more successful projects. Although this movie is billed as a comedy western, the movie never manages to be funny. It attempts to pull off some silly character moments as well as a bit of slapstick, but it all falls pretty flat for the most part. The characters themselves aren't quite fleshed out enough either, leaving the actors with little to do, try as they might. The movie's plot and how it's executed is quite flaccid as well. However, somehow the movie manages to retain some charm, which is mostly due to the presence of its actors, all of whom seem to be more in on the joke than they initially let on at times. Fans of Burt Reynolds' career, especially his early days before his southern-fried persona hit the mainstream, may want to seek it out. Others, however, may not find there's much here to look forward to.
