Cult Classic
30 September 2010 | by p_rohitSee all my reviews

Sesma is onto something with his tale of Nate, Kate, the Smith Brothers, Crazy Joe, Franklin, Grant, and a band of misfits raising havoc in what appears to be the middle of nowhere.

With over-the-top action sequences and adult-like crude humor of some savory and not-so-savory folks alike, Shoot the Hero is a fun, wham-bam- thank-you-ma'am, edge-of-your-seat ride that will easily become an instant cult-classic with a cerebral bent.

Overall, each of the main characters are rather interesting, with each of their stories told at a grippingly fast pace, reminding moviegoers of a similar gangster-crime saga of a cult classic in El Mariachi.
