review by
Mike Haberfelner

The Old West: After her sister Abigale (Lauren Compton) has been abducted by Swearengen's (Michael Paré) men to be turned into a prostitute in Deadwood, Ursula (Karin Brauns) tries to persuade the Colonel (Robert Bronzi), a former army man turned notorious gunslinger, into helping her freeing Abigale - but the Colonel turns her down as he's desparately trying to live a peaceful life. So she administers him a poison that will kill him within three days, promising him her sister holds the antidote. Now the Colonel basically has to come. On the way to Deadwood though, the two get into an ambush where a trio of outlaws try to rape Ursula while the Colonel suffers from stomach cramps, a side effect from the poison. Our heroes still hold their own, but one of the outlaws gets away with their horses. Deadwood's only a few days on foot away now, but in a few days the Colonel is definitely going to be a goner, so the situation's quite hopeless. But Ursula will stop at nothing to free her sister ...

 

In a very positive way, Once Upon a Time in Deadwood is a very old-fashioned western - but not in a way that feels in the least bit antiquated, but in a way that it concentrates on action and storytelling rather than post-modern shenanigans or revisionist reinterpretations. Sure, the story might be somewhat simplistic and very straight-forward, but it does have emotional depth and is more than just a hanger for the rather tense shoot-outs. The direction is elegant and really gets the most out of the modest budget, and the cast is really solid, with Robert Bronzi having his Charles Bronson act down to the t without ever taking it too far or drifting off into parody.

If you're at all into westerns, then this one's definitely for you.
