It's watchable, but too predictable.
6 January 2008 | by (Slovenia) – See all my reviews

So it's a western... A typical cowboy (or in this case sheep-boy) flick with straight forward good and bad guys.

The government wants to lease out as much land as possible and it is not important if either sheep or cattle are raised on the graze land they lease out, but the local cowherders still believe in feuding with the sheepherders...

Not surprising a shepherding family lands in trouble. It's a typical plot with an elderly father as the head of the family and a daughter attracting a hired hand, who turns out to be the hero in the end. Of course you mustn't forget the bad guys either. There's the big (and in this case the man really is a big man) bass, who hires gunmen to get rid of the family.

It's all so predictable that I doubt it had much effect on the viewers even back in the days... Today this would probably be done as an episode of a sitcom or something similar (possibly in 2 parts), but would have no chances of passing of as a feature film. I guess the pre-TV era of people going into cinemas and staying there between main features was the only reason why movies such as this one have been made.

It's not that it's a particularly bad movie, it's just so indistinguishable from tons of similar pictures. It'll still help pass/waste the time, but don't expect anything fascinating about it.
