We came across this movie on Netflix, and it was an excellent movie, with a great soundtrack. Initially, we really didn't recognize any of the star names, but as the movie progressed visually recognized several of the actors. Westerns seem to have fallen out of favor in Hollywood - it's hard to find them these days, unless it's the oldies made years and years ago. Ambush at Dark Canyon had it all, new movie, the good and bad guys, actors we recognized (eventually), beautiful cinematography, and great music. Afterwards, we researched the internet and discovered the lead was half of the country duo Brooks and Dunn, Kix Brooks. He really did a good job in the movie and even better job on the music.

Excellent western for people who enjoy the genre
A Western with Heart
This isn't just your run-of-the-mill “shoot ‘em up Western”, although the sets, costumes, and gunfight scenes are all extremely well done and authentic to the genre. It's also a story with heart. I personally feel that the measure of art in any form, whether it be a song, book, movie, etc., is its ability to move me. Inspire. ‘Ambush at Dark Canyon' did both. I laughed (mostly at William Shockley's portrayal of the cantankerous Cage Dalton, lol). I cried…oh, how I cried. And I rooted for Duke Donovan (played by country music star Kix Brooks), and shared in his triumph when justice was finally served. This DVD/CD combo really is an exceptional deal, as the soundtrack is superb. I've listened to it multiple times already, and I only bought it yesterday, lol. My favorite songs are the title track, “High in the Saddle” sung by Randy Houser, “Other Side” sung by Kix Brooks, and “I Can't Wait” sung by Rafe Van Hoy. ALL the songs are great, though, and really give the film an added richness and depth. Fantastic movie, and one I'll enjoy watching over and over again for years to come.
Great old west movie with good people, I am in it! The sound track and movie package is a good value.
Awesome movie good acting enjoyed this a lot! Came really fast!
Fantastic Movie and Soundtrack!
I loved the movie, and I loved the soundtrack even more. Not only is this a MUST for any Kix Brooks fan but anyone who enjoys a good Western. I won't give away the movie but I will say that the ending will shock you! It's one of the best in the modern era of Western's made. 2 Thumbs up!!!
