Waylon Jennings, in a brief cameo, is gunned down by a former acquaintance who hasreturned from prison consumed with thoughts of vengeance. Jennings’ son gets together withKris Kristofferson, Willie Nelson and Travis Tritt to track down the killer. Not unentertaining,but, flawed by both sentimentality and flip moments such as a saloon slaughter that, sinceUnforgiven, is difficult to take a face value any longer.
The audio is a 2.0 mix, but wit…in that limitation is very strong. The music has a full, richresonance, and the sound effects have a solid rear presence, working quite effectively to createa sense of environment. The sound is very clean, with no distortion, and the dialogue is neveroverwhelmed by the music.
The picture is fullscreen, with contradictory information on the case as to whether this wasthe original format or not (though this is pretty clearly a direct-to-video effort). There are a fewgrainy moments, primarily during exterior day shots, but otherwise the picture is very sharp, withnicely strong black and contrasts, and good colours.
The casting is a little obsessive in trotting forth country singers, but on the other hand, fansof the same should get a kick out of their performances here.
