Regardless, the point is made: despite his skill with a rifle and a reputation for murder, Jericho Ford is a good-hearted guy attempting to make a life for himself and his beloved Mary Primm (Danielle Gross). However, as Annabelle pokes around, she becomes entangled and caught by some very unpleasant men, who are defended by Jericho. One of those (now-dead) assailants turns out to be the son of Captain Hensley (Trace Adkins), who seeks vengeance. Generic plotting of many minions attempting to assassinate Jericho ensues, including another well-known assassin, Oslo Pike (Ed Morrone), who appears to love a hard task and will carry out the assassination.

All of this results in a damsel in distress, killed friends (you know you’ve got a lousy movie when threats of physical torture don’t even elicit a response), and boring climactic shootouts (not to mention some of the strangest regulations for a quickdraw duel I’ve ever seen). At the very least, Apache Junction is decently constructed, with nothing particularly horrifying about it, but given how boring the exercise is, there’s cause to wish it was that hilariously bad. The film’s one good idea, which is to follow a female journalist as she observes and paints realities about the famous Apache Junction, is completely wasted, which is a shame because Scout Taylor-Compton is still a good actress.
