Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: As promised, Wild Bill fights and dies.

Con: There’s probably some message here, but I’m not seeing what it is. Otherwise, the story seems to have very little substance to it. Wild Bill dies. McHugh lives. It’s not even clear why they want to fight, much less whom to root for.

The Wild-west motif with swords not guns seems a little off.
