A self-entertaining with too much money to throw away?

"Loose script with holes as big as the Black Hole. At certain clippings, there were potentials to evolve into a good movie but always fell short. I could clearly see that none of the actors had put heart into this movie but just acting by wearing cool dark or black gears. Son of Tolby didn't know how to handle a six shooter but suddenly became a fast-draw gunfighter and shot to kill the tough gunslinger without even had to aim. The loud mouthed tough outlaw with fast draw was beaten by the young man due to ending was coming and had to die. Nelson and Chris just cash in for their cool images. There was no storyline whatever I could see, just contrite and joking around performance. The country singer sang a pretty good song but acting poorly with good western Texan accent. What's the deal between the Mexican officer and that look-tough-but-got-nothing-to-cash-in when the chips were down? Don't treat a viewer like me as a pea brain or even brain dead, OK? The script was obviously a die-trying by a high school drop out. What impressed me most is the snorings of these two old hombres. That's the only thing I could remember and visualized for this pathetic movie."
A cast of singers, but only a couple of songs

Rated R: Not for sale to persons under age 18.
Video Release Date: May 20, 2003Cast:Willie Nelson
Sancho Gracia as Holden (the bad guy)A bunch of former outlaws (Willie, Kris, Tritt) are bent on revenge when one of their former "business associates" (Jennings)
is murdered by another outlaw, Holden (Sancho Gracia). They extract their own version of justice when Holden lures them below the border, with hopes of causing their deaths.I don't know why the "R" rating. The violence was almost non-existent, no bad language, and no nudity or anything you would be ashamed for your mother or children to see.Only Tritt and Willie sang in the film, and the motivation of Holden was ill-defined. Altogether a poorly motivated plot, with the cast providing the backbone of the film. They did their parts well, making it an adequate Western to watch and kill some time, thanks to them. Not a great film, or particularlt memorable.I am always impressed by Kris and Willie when they team up. Kris is good at "looking menacing," and Willie is entertaining.Joseph (Joe) Pierre
