Gunfighter's Moon is the story of a World Weary gunfighter. He is sick of having to fight for his life and having to kill low lifes and wannabe's.
He gets a letter from his old love who blew him off because of his gunfighting ways. She asks him to come to her and he hopes she wants him back.
So he travels a fer distance and gets there only to find out she want our hero there only to save her husband (who is the temporary sherrif) from a confrontation with 3 desperados he is ill equipped to handle.
Throw in a daughter that he didn't know he had, a daughter's boyfriend who is hot to show off his own gun prowess, and a terrific villain and his henchman and you have the makings of a real unheralded GEM.
Lance Henriksen is excellent as the gunfighter and the rest of the cast shines.
I would give it 4.5 stars out of 5.

"This is a great film if you happen to be a Lance Henriksen enthusiast. It's the story of Frank Morgan, a legendary gunfighter. Morgan's past catches up with him when his old flame asks for his help, and he meets his daughter for the first time.
This is a highly entertaining film. To see Lance kick major ass as a gunfighter and have the starring role is all you need. As always he has the best dialogue, probably lines Lance came up with himself.
I have seen many of Lance's films and this is one of his best!"
Classic unknown western

"I ordered this DVD on the strength of the preview, seen on another web site, and reports from other customers who purchased it. I was from the opening scenes, pleased with this movie. It was good to see a western where the lead character is gritty, not ' politically correct ', and is his own man. In a bio on Lance, I read where he really put himself into this role, and was able to handle his own stunts and revolver work. The results being a good old fashioned western where a dark hero comes to the aid of someone from his past, and no matter what the odds, he prevails. One can also note themes taken from other westerns like High Noon, when the townsfolks refuse to assist their local stand in law man. But it is Frank Morgan's story, and Lance makes Frank come alive and he steals every scene he's in. The closing scene seems to be a fitting end for such a good film. His daughter, finally coming to know that this stranger gunman, was her real father...as he rides off. I have an extensive collection of western films and now having seen Gunfighter's Moon, rank it as perhaps my favorite of all. Thank you Amazon."
