Reviews for Riders in the Sky

Review - Riders in the Sky

The movie opens with Autry singing the famous song Ghost Riders in the Sky. The song gave the movie its name, but it was tacked on to another almost-finished movie and had nothing whatsoever to do with the plot. It's a mess, with more plot holes and unexplained behavior than pretty much any movie I've ever seen.
