"I'll show you wild, Bill Hickok!"
Well this isn't what I expected. I was hoping to see a gritty Western movie about the unfortunate and untimely demise of the infamous Wild Bill Hickok. Instead I got a B-movie about a pretty boy taking a job as sheriff of Abilene. On the plus side, I wasn't aware Bill Hickock was ever a lawman.
Everything about Hickok is pretty subpar. The acting, writing, direction, blah. Trace Adkins is a surprisingly passable actor, and I really enjoyed seeing a few appearances by Bruce Dern and Kris Kristofferson. I wish Bruce Dern could have had a better final scene, but...reasons.
The story itself isn't bad, though there are some moments that tend to drag…
