SHOOT FIRST AND PRAY YOU LIVE

There is a new film based on the Max Brand novel Luck. It doesn't look traditional, in fact it looks more like a movie based on an Elmore Leonard crime novel than a classic Western. It does, however, look interesting. The title is a long one: Shoot First and Pray You Live (Because Luck Has Nothing to Do with It). It has a paltry rating of 3.9 out of 10 stars at IMdB, so it should probably be viewed with discretion and skepticism, due to both the poor rating and what, from the trailer, appears to be a heavy dose of gore and violence.

But it's a Western.



Shoot First and Pray You Live (Because Luck Has Nothing to Do with It) was directed and written by Lance Doty. It is is directorial debut, but he does have a few writing and producing credits, including another film I haven't seen called Noise. There are also a few recognizable faces in the cast, including the always working character actor James Russo who was in both Open Range and "Broken Trail".
