The synopsis reminded me of GBU.

I really don't know much about the movie. I hope it's an ok western. I read that there are some wild special effects in it. I'm suprised to see it on dvd already. I wasn't expecting it so soon. Can't wait to check it out.

As a big Blueberry fan I was very thrilled to hear of this movie last winter but when I read that there is practically no Blueberrry storyline left in it, and that Kounen had turned one of the best album story lines into an acid trip; I was dissapointed. Coz the story that the movie is based on is excellent - twists and turns, quest for gold, mad german, a ghost in the canyon etc. - but apparently the movie is more of a personal introvert statement from Kounen. Which is fine if it wasn't so bad as they say it is. It hasn't even premiered in Denmark yet and I don't know if it will. But damn, such high hopes...

I remember Blueberry posting stuff about this back in April. The comic origins sounded fasinating from the links he posted.

Sounds more like El Topo from the opinions.

Still very curious about seein it.

I should have watched this earlier but was put off by some of our French amigos negative comments.

Sort of a Spaghetti Mystic Western, I've never seen anything of Blueberry except for a few images posted here so I didn't have any predisposed expectations.

Anyway I saw it tonight and can honestly say the SW/Euro Western parts were just great, the indian shaman stuff was ok too, but the CGI's were way too long (espcially for me a child of the 60's who seen this stuff before, in more ways than one, lol) if they would have trimmed them down to a few minutes it would have made a much better quicker paced film.

The peyote tea tripping halucinitory images have been done before  in "2001 A Space Odessey" "Easy Rider" and in "Altered States" even "The Cell" to name just four, I guess it may be a case of too much of a good thing.

The western set pieces had that Spaghetti twist which was great, ie., Ernest Borgnine as the wheelchair bound sherriff, and Dijimon Honsou and what happens to him is a hoot. It could have used much more of this and less the special FX. The cinematography was great no complaints there. Even with these faults its better than the "Quick & the Dead".

I've stayed away from this because of all the negative comments I've heard and reviews I've read. Will probably check it out one day though, the cast is certainly interesting. The CGI elements doesn't sound very appealing though.

Blueberry The Movie... it stinks, trust me CJ, you gotta read those graphic novels instead, particularly The Mad German's Gold Mine and The Ghost with the Golden Bullets (or something lika that in English). There can't be much of a European comics scene in the US if you can't get them. They're classics. The movie never will be.
