Verdict on Die in a Gunfight
Die in a Gunfight is an action comedy that uses the idea that two rival families could be torn about by a couple of lovers. It sees how far both families will go to stop their children from being together. This leads to a series of events that could change everyone forever.
The movie is looking to add a style to a rich family’s bigger rivalry. Using that to create flamboyant figures to be added to the lives to keep things quiet. The core of the story is about a forbidden love story being drawn together. It tries to be edgy in the style but only ends up being like many other we have seen before, without the added impact.
Final Thoughts – Die in a Gunfight is trying to be flashy and stylish only it doesn’t do enough impact.
