Movie Review: ‘Stagecoach: The Texas Jack Story’

Review by Bluray Junkies

Stagecoach: The Texas Jack Story tells the story of Nathaniel Reed played by Trace Adkins A reformed gunslinger who has settled into quite family life on his ranch. However things go bad when one of Reed’s old enemy played by the always great Kim Coats has come back seeking vengeance after being injured by Reed in a stagecoach robbery years prior. Reed’s life is soon torn apart and he turns back to his old ways as Texas Jack, the most wanted outlaw in the West.

And that sounds like a promising movie and that’s where it ends. It’s not necessarily a bad movie, it feels more like they tried too hard to make the movie they envisioned and it just didn’t turn out, maybe the low budget is to blame? There is some heavy over acting, bad direction and camera work, even the sound effects seemed off. The only highlight of the movie was Kim Coats playing Reed’s nemesis and Judd Nelson but even they couldn’t save this movie.

However that’s also part of its charm. There are some redeeming qualities to this movie, they are far and in between but they are there and even with the over acting, bad direction and dialog there’s something about it that makes it worth while. Even with these problems there is a passion behind it all and that’s what moves the movie forward and does make for an entertaining time. It’s a perfect rainy day, nothing to do movies.

Opens Theatrically on November 4 in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Phoenix, Denver, Orlando, Tampa-St.Petersburg and Kansas City, and Day-and-Date On Demand & Digital HD.
