Average Western with disappointing action and plot

I am a fan of well done, action packed Westerns but this movie fails to deliver any exciting or believable fight scenes. The gun play sequences are poorly paced and not very believable and the transitions between scenes are awkward. The worst flaw was the lack of continuity between scenes. A young boy is shot in the right leg and we watch as the bullet is removed by a half drunken doctor but in a scene five minutes later, the boy is shown sitting with a bandaged LEFT leg, only to be shown later with an injured right leg again. Overall this was a promising movie that did not live up to my expectations.

Establishing Law and Order in Abilene

After getting into one scrape with the law after the next, "Wild Bill Hickok" (Luke Hemsworth) rides into Abilene, Kansas and heads directly to the saloon for a drink. While there he saves a young man from getting shot while in a poker game which happens to catch the eye of the local mayor "George Knox" (Kris Kristofferson) who subsequently offers him a job as the town sheriff. Although the town of Abilene is known for its lawlessness this doesn't faze him and so he accepts the job with the intention of establishing law and order one way or the other. Unfortunately, this doesn't please everyone-especially the richest and most influential resident named "Phil Poe" (Trace Adkins) who owns the biggest saloon and has benefited tremendously from the status quo. Likewise, the fact that his fiancé named "Mattie" (Cameron Richardson) seems to have kept a secret from him concerning her relationship with Hickok doesn't please him either. Now rather than reveal any more I will just say that this turned out to be an enjoyable Western movie with decent performances all around. Admittedly, the pony tail sported by Trace Adkins struck me as rather odd for this particular era but other than that it turned out to be a good, solid film and I have rated it accordingly. Slightly above average.

Wild Bill's early years

The best film I've seen done on Wild Bill Hickok is White Buffalo where Charles Bronson played the legendary frontier marshal. It was set at a different time and place during his life. This film Hickok is set at the beginning showing some of his Civil War service and the beginning of his time as marshal of Abilene.

Unlike Wyatt Earp who rarely used his weapon and before the OK Corral business had only killed one man, Hickok was as fast as rumored and had a few kills listed to him. That's what is shown here. Luke Hemsworth who plays Hickok also carries a shotgun as most peace officers did. What counted was to make sure hit your target. He has quite the standoff with John Wesley Hardin who in real life never made it as far north as Kansas. He certainly wasn't Hickok's deputy. Hardin is played here by Kaiwi Lyman-Mesereau.

The film moves at a tortoise pace attributable to some bad direction and the characters never engage you the way the cast in the Bronson film did. Having such veterans as Kris Kristofferson and Bruce Dern help a bit. But this is not the final cinematic word on Wild Bill Hickok.
