Audience Reviews for The Legend of Charley


Classic Blaxploitation with a tint of Western, badly acted but the script was quite well done. The costumes were quite note worthy as they are really well made but the hair styles were terrible. The lack of soundtrack made it seem a bit more realistic. I wouldn't say it's a great film but it's not terrible to watch.
