REVIEW QUOTES - DEAD IN TOMBSTONE

Collider, Patrick Cooper:

“Director Roel Reiné is one of the better filmmakers of the current DTV action market.  His Death Race 2 and 3 pushed the low-budget action envelope and with his latest, Dead in Tombstone, he continues to deliver the most bang for the buck.”

“Dead in Tombstone has some really impressive stunts and set-pieces – from horse-drawn carriage flips to chandelier swings (classic!) and massive explosions – and they’re all staged and shot better than most Hollywood action fare.  One particular explosion near the end looks impossibly large, though no CGI was used.  Action fans will definitely want to check out this unique supernatural revenge thriller.”

“There’s also a short look at Roel Reiné’s intense directing style.  The man works super fast, covers everything, and knows exactly what he wants.  I really hope this guy gets some big-budget work soon, but for now, his DTV films are enough to satisfy the most diehard action fans.”


Aint it Cool News, Ambush Bug:

"….there’s something to be said about the straight up fun revenge flick that DEAD IN TOMBSTONE is

So while this film takes on a typical CROW-like scenario where a shot down character returns for vengeance, it’s the performances that make this one stand out as something special.

--director Roel Reiné keeps things moving at a rapid and exciting pace. While DEAD IN TOMBSTONE is not a comic book film, per se, it definitely has its comic book roots with its electric editing and fantastic action sets.

director Roel Reiné seems destined for something bigger after this one."


DesdeHollywood, Nestor Bentancor:

"Danny Trejo Never Looked This Good.

What is really striking is how good everything and everyone in this straight to DVD production look. Some sequences in Dead in Tombstone are better than what you may see in a mega blockbusters. Like Zack Snyder or some Korean directors, Roel Reiné (who also directed Death Race: Inferno for Universal) crafts impressive sequences combining a great photography with slow motion and creative CGI."


The Action Elite, Alex:

"Roel Reine has already proved to the world that he can deliver a great action film on a modest budget, and has become for me, one of the best modern action Directors around today. I always look forward to his upcoming projects, and see what he comes up with next?  For his latest, Dead in Tombstone, he still manages to surprise me. Not only is the quality of this film made for the big screen, but also a nice departure for what Reine has delivered thus far. Dead In Tombstone is so much damn fun, that it will most definitely be apart of my top 5 for 2013. I loved every single minute of it

You don’t see that kind of  “coolness” in theatrical films

Great acting from the entire cast. Some very awesome and inventive action scenes. Anthony Michael Hall and Mickey Rourke have scene stealing performances. Roel Reine's best film to date!

It is an absolute sin that majority of people will pass this movie by as being a typical low budget DVD action film.

Roel is a filmmaker that needs to be more recognized for being one of the very best in his field right now."


We Got This Covered, Matt Donato:

“action was at a premium”

“Reiné knows what it takes to make an entertaining shoot em’ up film, and focuses on those moments to drive a ho-hum story along – starting with the casting of Danny Trejo.”

“Reiné builds a beautifully visual set that transports us back to the times of John Wayne.”


Influx Magazine, Ed Blackadder:

"Director Roel Reiné, king of straight-to-DVD schlock, is certainly capable of knocking out a watchable film, and, I’d have to say, he’s upped his game with this Western/Fantasy fare."


TS Alan:

"Dutch born Roel Reiné has already proven himself to be a top-notch action director with movies like Death Race 2 and 12 Rounds: Reloaded. His latest directorial release is no exception.

Dead In Tombstone with its supernatural elements is a gritty vengeance Western that delivers enough shootouts, chase scenes, and explosions to make it an action-packed and entertaining film."


Dennis Lamers:

"Damn good film by filmmaker Roel Reine!

Funny thing; Dina Meyer is directed for a second time by a dutch filmmaker. Roel makes her act better than Verhoeven ever did in Starship Troopers."


Kenny Howes:

"I trust you'll find it more entertaining than The Lone Ranger which probably cost about 20 times as much to make."


Alsh Wenbear:

"The direction and writing is at his best, and considering its budget very well done, the editing keeps the pace of the movie and the soundtrack keeps up with it, it reminded me of those old movies where the actors where "forced" to act, back then when CGI wasn't so imposing.

I like this movie better than I did "Machete" with all its stars. Sometimes, less is better!"
