'Gunslingers - Season 1'
(2-DVD / NR / 2015 / Cinedigm)

Overview: The Wild West lives on in unprecedented glory through the 'Gunslingers' series - an irresistible mix of historical authenticity with the captivating appeal of cinematic storytelling.

DVD Verdict: 'Gunslinger,' the new television series from the American Heroes Channel, captures all the edge-of-your-seat drama of a classic Hollywood Western, but layers in all of the true facts from these legends that echo throughout history. Indeed, as Kevin Bennett, General Manager, American Heroes Channel has himself said, "American Heroes Channel is proud to bring viewers a very different style of documentary series - told from the unique P.O.V. of the icons themselves - to bring new life to the timeless frontier sagas that continue to captivate audiences." In truth, and having now watched this DVD set, I couldn't have put it any better myself.

From unlawful lawman Wyatt Earp, teenage vagabond Billy the Kid, scorned rebel Jesse James, Yankee sharpshooter Wild Bill Hickok, dangerous psychopath John Wesley Hardin and war veteran-turned-assassin Tom Horn, 'Gunslingers' tips its cowboy hat to those who became icons in a wild, wild world. Juxtaposed with vivid reenactments, expert commentary is layered throughout each episode to ensure the authenticity and historical accuracy of each story.

Personally, I've always felt that the things one experience visually tend to stick in the mind easier than just, shall we say, "flat" documentaries. Ergo, this series in located firmly rooted in the former of those categories, for sure. Indeed, I found myself remembering the acting parts more than the parts where historians give their overview. I wasn't expecting an actual western movie to unfold before me, so no complaints on the story and acting. In truth, the content is perfect balanced and with its high level of detailed overview - of the various outlaws and such - this series works for me quite like any other that I chose to sit through. I hope it does for you also as 'Gunslingers' is fascinating entertainment. This is a Widescreen Presentation (1.78:1) enhanced for 16x9 TVs.
