"The Gatling Gun, aka King Gun, is a nice little western with a good cast of western regulars. The US Cavalry is stretched pretty thin all across the Southwest as the Apaches attack all over the territory. The government sends a Gatling Gun to each military post to help fend off the Indians. At one outpost, the gun is stolen so a troop must go out and bring it back. During the rescue effort, the troop comes across a family trying to make it to safety. The cavalry troop and the family must fight their way home as an Apache chief, Two Knifes, and over a hundred braves close in on them. There is nothing really special about this movie, but I enjoyed it. If you can find a copy for cheap, I recommend it.
Guy Stockwell plays Lt. Malcolm, the leader of the cavalry troop trying to recover a Gatling gun and survive countless Apache attacks. Robert Fuller plays Sneed, a greedy soldier who tries to dispose of the gun with Rev. Harper, John Carradine's character. Barbara Luna stars as Leona, the treacherous reverend's daughter who will do anything to survive. Woody Strode is Runner, the army scout leading the troop through Apache territory. The family travelling along with the troop includes Patrick Wayne as Jim, Pat Buttram as Tin Pot, Phil Harris as Boland, and Judy Jordan as Martha. The Apache chief Two Knives is played by Carlos Rivas. The VHS offers a decent looking copy with colors that fade in and out at certain points in the movie. For an enjoyable western with a good cast and an exciting climax, check out The Gatling Gun!"

"This review is for the movie The Gatling Gun/King Gun 1972/1973,there is one with the same title in 1968 thats a different movie folks!....Like the title says a good movie,good actors,see other reviews for discription of movie review..........but I thought I'd also rate the quality of the dvd from Westlake Budget,very poor looks like a copy of the original film which is in bad shape,colours faded,film scrathes etc and I understand the dvd from Timeless Media Group is no better.......not worth the price keep it in mind and wait for a better copy to be released.........I like buying from Amazon but when they sell you dvd's that are this bad a quality your actually getting riped off by these distributers,when will Amazon look after there customers and pull movies made by this off there shelfs....until Amazon does we need to not just review movies but identify these distributers in our reviews so no one else buys them............just my little thought going out to you!!!"
