It's silly and dated, but a treat nonetheless
18 November 2002 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

I'm rapidly developing a taste for Tom Keene movies. He looks and sounds only a few notches away from being a live-action Dudley Do-Right...but somehow his performances work for me.

This movie is intriguing to me because Tom's good pal (well-played by the regretful-looking Lon Chaney Jr.) is working for the outlaws and gets himself killed...then when Lon's little brother shows up, Lon's former girlfriend competes with Tom to raise the boy. The pretty girlfriend, by the way, used to work over at the dance hall, where business has dropped off since she left...one presumes she wasn't just dancing... So it's fun to see squeaky-clean Tom being buddies with a cheap crook and a retired dance hall gal.

The final scenes are action-packed fun (made all the more odd and dated because of the speeded-up camera) and I got to cheer whenever Tom hit somebody. I like movies that make me cheer for the heroes. So YAY!
