Reception[edit]

The Indianapolis Business Journal reviewed the movie, stating that "In case you couldn’t tell from the film’s title, this movie is full of bad dialogue and mildly absurd story lines. But if you have ever wondered what kind of movie would arise if you melded “Kill Bill,” “A Fistful of Dollars” and “The Outlaw Josie [sic] Wales,” this movie is for you."[3] The Santa Fe New Mexican also reviewed the film, writing "For a low-budget oater, Shoot First is surprisingly well shot, well acted, and mostly well scripted (though it's a bit talky and repetitious in places)."[4]
