Good For Nothing stands out as one of the most enjoyable Westerns from the past thirty years. In tone and spirit its close to the classic Sergio Leone-Clint Eastwood Spaghetti westerns. Director/Writer Mike Wallis has done a great job staying true to the genre while delivering an entertaining story full of unique twists to all of the classic scenes. Cohen Holloway plays the classic western anti-hero perfectly, with the added problem of dealing with erectile dysfunction - well his character anyway. Inge Rademeyer breaks the mold of the 'damsel in distress', bringing a complexity and substance with her performance to a role that traditionally has little to offer. Her and the director have built the role into a real-world character. Western fans should definitely seek this one out, its well worth it.

Brilliant Western with all the fun of classic Sergio LeoneReviewed byAndrew MillerVote: 10/10
What a great little movie, though I say "little" only because it's obviously an independent that seems to have missed much attention. I highly recommend it. The story is handled very, very well and the two lead actors bowled me over, especially since one appears to spend more time behind the camera than in front of it. That should really change!
Others have described the plot and the nice use of humor, although it never becomes camp. By the end, I was surprised to be reminded of The Earthling. Earthling has a very different style and topic, but they share the same kind of depth and impact by the end.
Of more recent films, I was also reminded of Meeker's Cutoff. Both were set, more or less, in the old west and provided an authentic feel that just felt right.
I've never been big on Western movies but Good for Nothing was surprisingly entertaining. In most Westerns I've seen there are often long drawn out pan out shots of bare land and dull dialogue, however Good for Nothing has witty and sometimes sarcastic dialogue between the characters and a simple plot that juxtaposes the type of lifestyle that was shared during western times. Perhaps the must unique factor that I found out about this movie after I watched it was the fact that its the first Pavlova Western the world has ever seen, meaning it was inspired by spaghetti western movies yet it was filmed in New Zealand. I'm planning on grabbing a copy of it when it comes out in DVD it was that good.
