Good guys can't catch a break, but win in the end.
25 May 2004 | by (Salt Lake City, Utah) – See all my reviews

The good guys never seem to catch a break. It added to the plot and my frustration. What a roller coaster of a movie. It was a good movie and keeps you on the edge of your seat rooting for the good guys to get one thing to go their way. Common John Wayne where, as the hero, he never gives up hope.

Didn't realize that it was almost 3 hours till it got close to the end and I looked up at the clock.

If you like b/w old movies, it's a good show to watch. I like John Wayne but have watched most of his older movies. It's a lot of fun to see a young John Wayne running around to save the day. If you don't like the older John Wayne movies, give some of is younger stuff a chance.
