Tagline: Bullets, bombs and babes!

Plot: Three Federal agents go in search of gold supposedly hidden by Quantrell during the Civil War after they are suspended by a corrupt official for excessive force during a drug raid. Meanwhile a drug lord (Obregon) hires a hit woman (Strain) to kill the three for interfering with his operations.

My rating: 3.5/10 Will I watch it again?  No.

If it weren't for these...

there'd be no reason to consider watching this.  Fortunately those are scattered throughout the film (and even in the last 5 minutes!!!).  Unfortunately, this picture lacks the endless cheesy lines (there's some bad acting like you'd expect, though) and stupidity that makes some of Andy Sidaris' films watchable and sometimes fun.  The Civil War flashbacks are dreadfully dull.  Something else that's missing is the beautiful Hawaii location shooting you usually get with Sidaris' pictures.  Boobs are great but they can't sustain 90 minutes of yawns.  You can get this in a set of 11 other films in the Girls, Guns and G-Strings DVD set for ten bucks online.  Is it worth it?  I'm 4 films in and there's one that has a chance at being watched again (HINT: it's HARD TICKET TO HAWAII (1987)).
