A Vietnam veteran seeks revenge on the cartel that kidnapped a daughter figure. Hints of a more elegiac contemporary Western linger, but the released cut is a lumpy body-count flick with linear plotting and an oddly perfunctory attitude to the staging of its many kills. Best thing is the end credits, which strike the right tone.
An alcoholic drifter stumbles into a town where the annual manhunt is about to begin. Bleak borderlands horror/thriller of trouble down Mexico way. Lots to recommend it if you like your meat gamey.
