This Is Truly Awful
11 January 2009 | by sddavis63See all my reviews

"Awful" is not a word I use often to describe a movie. There's usually some redeeming quality that at least raises it to the level of just plain "bad." "Awful" is the word here, though. Chuck Conners stars as the leader of a band of ex-Confederate soldiers who find themselves caught in the middle of a South American civil war in 1870. Aside from the last 10 minutes or so there's precious little action or adventure here, and there's a lot of just plain dumbness. Ike (Aron Kincaid) falls head over heels in love with a girl he meets for 5 minutes at a local monastery (true!) and at one point brings a guitar playing buddy of his to the monastery to serenade her while the nuns look on! Then he spends the rest of the movie gazing forlornly into the distance with puppy-dog like eyes. Meanwhile, Hansen (Conners) becomes a sort of protector/lover to a gypsy girl whose own people have cut off one of her ears. Aside from Conners and Cesar Romero as the leader of the town of San Carlos we have here largely unknown actors (unsurprising, since how would they get anyone to cast them in anything significant after this disaster?) 1/10
