The devil’s outlaw and reluctant servant, Guerrero returns from the dead again in this action-packed western which promises to be one hell of a ride. Guerrero is forced to protect a stolen relic from getting into the hands of Jackson Boomer and his gang of soldiers, but Jackson will stop at nothing to raise his comrades from the dead and bring the wrath of hell upon earth. Guerrero must use all his dark powers in order to defeat Jackson and find redemption…or die again trying.

_Dead in Tombstone_ is not a movie I ever expected to see a sequel to. And this movie is not at all the direction I would have guessed at said sequel taking. But _Dead Again in Tombstone_ is a thing that happened, so I guess I was _dead wrong_. It's not quite as good as the original (and the original was not exactly a five star affair itself) . But _Dead Again_ does prove watchable, especially in the hit-and-miss field of today's Westerns, mostly thanks to the feud between Danny Trejo and a surprisingly bearable Jake Busey. It might lean a little too hard into the "mythology" angle when compared to its predecessor, but all told, _Dead Again in Tombstone's_ existence may have come as a surprise, but not an unpleasant one. _Final rating:★★½ - Had a lot that appealed to me, didn’t quite work as a whole._

The first movie, Dead in Tombstone, was fairly okay. Not great but okay. This movie, the second instalment, was a bit of a disappointment though. The general idea is a good one. At least it is one I would generally have liked. However, it is really poorly implemented. Danny is supposed to be the devil’s servant imbued with supernatural powers and supposed to kick some serious ass. You know, a bit like Ghost Rider in the old west. Unfortunately he is nothing but. Most of the time he is roaming around sulking and trying to patch things up with his daughter. He is really not showing much in terms of terrifying presence or supernatural powers. Whenever he springs into action he is just blundering in shooting at everything that moves and usually he gets shot up and “dies” in the process. Afterwards he get’s revived and the process starts all over again. Towards the end of the movie we finally get some supernatural action but it is really too late to save it and not really that impressive to begin with. On the whole the script is pretty bland and unconvincing. It is more suitable for a TV-show episode than a feature movie. Really a shame. I generally like Danny Trejo when he is playing badass.
