To me, the western is... I don't want to say cheap, but they're gritty and close to the sand and grime.  To me, big scale westerns that truly rock are "The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly" and "Duck, You Sucker" which I feel like should have been more the model for this flick than Pirates of The Caribbean on Horses.  The thing about the old west is that they were still building it, everything was outdoors, you were drenched in sun and up to your elbows in the elements, you were self reliant because you needed to be and life was cheap because it was so easy to lose.

Now, I actually like the idea of putting a superhero or a Batman-esque figure in this world, but how is it not those big-budget Zorro movies?  And I remember liking the first one, but how often do we think back on those?  What is the comment they're trying to make on the old west?
