"Beautiful Cheyenne (Bobbie Phillips), wife of brutal old Captain Starrett (Bo Svenson) runs away from her husband, carrying a satchel full of money, to boot. Starrett makes young hunk bounty hunter Jeremiah (Gary Hudson) a offer he can't refuse to find his missing wife and bring her back alive. In the meantime Starrett also hires master bounty hunter Haddox (M.C. Hammer) and his midget Indian scout Razor (Robert Bell) to find the missing woman.
The three-stars I've given to CHEYENNE simply mean I thought this movie was okay, not necessarily that I think many others will share my taste in low-budget westerns. The story is nothing new. Svenson is good as the tough husband, Hudson and Phillips adequate as hormone erupting co-leads, and Hammer and that creepy dwarf are terrible as the chasers. The plot moves along quickly enough, blood pellets explode is slow motion every time somebody's shot (in other words, pretty often), and the Utah location is pleasing to the eye.
Still, CHEYENNE was wrapped in 1996 and not released, and then on television, until 2002. It's probably safe to say that someone didn't have much faith in this one. The three stars are for western fans only.
For Bobbie Phillips fans

"I came across this low budget western on cable one night and recorded it out of curiosity. A good call on my part seeing I have liked lead actress Bobbie Phillips ever since I saw her on an episode of the X-Files as a bug expert. I believe this is her first leading role, but it's nothing to write home about. The plot - about a ruthless gunrunner trying to find his cheating wife and the money she stole from him - could have worked if they had a better script, better actors and a bigger budget. As it is, the action sequences are laughable and the dialogue makes you groan. They scraped the bottom of the barrel by getting MC Hammer to play a bounty hunter, together with a mute dwarf!
Cheyenne's only saving grace is Bobbie Phillips, who is not shy about showing some skin. You may remember Ms. Phillips as one of the background characters in Showgirls - she's one of the strippers at the club Elizabeth Berkley moonlights at before her big break. The three stars are for Bobbie!"
