I watched this last night and thoroughly enjoyed it.
I personally have no problem with the motor car in this type of film and think the Zapata era westerns bring something good to the genre (however I wasn’t brought up on the old western myth to the same degree as Brother Phil, Brother Romaine, and many others on this forum, - but I think I can still empathise with those sentiments). But, if the bringing of the railroad heralded the end of the ‘western’ old ways (as hinted at by the Prophet in FAFDM, and made explicit in OUATITW) and frontier violence isn’t applicable anymore, then the Mexican Revolution and build-up make for a welcome extention of the genre - cars, planes an’all. Some of the best … Tepepa, The Mercenary, Duck You Sucker, have them included - as previously mentioned.
I enjoyed seeing Steffen playing a humanly fallible character, as opposed to mister mean and moody (which I also like), and there was good well rounded characterisation of all the major players (particularly of Dominique Boschero as she leans forward for a wash :-*).[Gratuitous but expected misogynist statement included here.]
Tongue in cheek … but no extended brawls and not a stick slapped in sight.
Great fun - 4 stars.
