NOT TRINITY... BUT VERY ENTERTAINING
By W. G. McCaslen
I wondered if I'd like this, I didn't think T. Hill could pull it off by himself, but he does, with help from Paul Sorvino and a good cast of characters. Although DOC WEST isn't TRINITY, it is an entertaining film(much better dubbing). This movie although not as gritty as the TRINITY films it has several good moments and continues the eating beans from a frying pan joke from them. It appears Paul Sorvino is stepping in to Bud Spencers' shoes and not doing to bad and T. Hill is moving on with his career, YEAH!!! I'm looking forward to seeing TRIGGERMAN(the sequel) and many others. I can't figure the bad reviews, any western fan should be well pleased with this movie, I do like my movies(especially westerns) more to the R-rated side, this movie is far to good to be given less than a three star rating, I'm giving it a 5 star if for no other reason than TRINITY'S back, err a DOC WEST.

Not a typical Terence Hill movie
By Amazon Customer
While this movie is not the typical Terence Hill movie, it was still well worth watching. As another reviewer described the movie with the words Shane meets Little House on the prairie, it was that, yet more. The principal theme that I took away from the movie was of redemption and hope. Hill, the main character is initially mysterious but likable, and as more is learned of him, he becomes more human. This movie doesn't have the comedy that is typical of the usual Hill western, but he still has the skills with cards and guns. The fancy card handling has obvious camera manipulation that is a little distracting, but then we know that Hill wouldn't be able to do the tricks with the deck without a little help. He doesn't do much shooting, but when he does, his speed and skill are reminiscent of the Trinity movies. The picture quality and cinematography are very good. This is a movie that I would recommend to anyone to watch alone or as a family. Maybe over a skillet of beans.

Doc West (Widescreen)
By C. A. Luster
Fans of Terrence Hill will definitely want to see the aging star in another Western. There isn't near the comedy that many of his previous movies contained. He plays an aging cowboy with sage advice, but doesn't show much of the energy we have come to expect from him. Paul Sorvino is decent, but I'd be lying if I said I wouldn't have rather had Bud Spencer as the sheriff. The movie plods along and although worth seeing it doesn't have the same entertainment energy and/or comedy level to the Trinity Twin Pack (They Call Me Trinity / Trinity is Still My Name) movies or My Name Is Nobody (40th Anniversary Edition) [Blu-ray]. In fact I fell asleep the first watching and had to go back and see it again. If you enjoyed this movie, they made a sequel called Triggerman. I hope if they make a third movie they put more comedy in it. If you want something you can sit down with the whole family and watch I recommend these movies.
