I wasn't sure what to expect from this movie but since it was one of the few movies starring Arnold Schwarzenegger which I haven't seen yet so I thought I should give it a try. Basically, this movie represented the beginning of the end for Kirk Douglas (who was already more than 60 years old at the time) and the beginning of the beginning for Schwarzenegger.

Kirk Douglas and Arnold Schwarzenegger did a movie together?! Yeah, I couldn't believe it at first ether. But that's only the tip the ice berg of bizarreness. It's also a live action Road Runner cartoon! So let's sum this up:

"One of the all time Hollywood greats and the granddaddy of cheesy action movies team up for a live action road runner cartoon."

How did this movie bypass me for so long?!

However my main problem with Cactus Jack is that the first half of the film is largely uneventful, but it begins to pick up pace during the second half. By far my favourite gag in the film is the classic painting a tunnel onto the side of a rock. Of course having this gag in a cartoon is funny itself, however I think having it played out in live action is even funnier i” read more

Basically, it is a Western spoof but even though I enjoyed the fact that it didn't sink too low, it was still not really funny, I'm afraid. It is the like the running joke with Douglas' horse.
