The things really going for this film are the fancy camera shots, the over-the-top music, and some fine performances from Stone and Hackman. Hackman is a good bad guy (as always) and Stone is pretty convincing as a Clint Eastwood type. She looks and acts tough enough to hold the film together for a long time. But the fact is that it really isn't a spoof until the last 20 minutes of the film. The seriousness of the first part of the film doesn't bother me as much as the fact that the acting isn't very good during that first part. My conclusion: Raimi has a long way to go before he gets a four star hit.
