Quite flawed but quite enjoyable.

"Rainbow's End" is a bit frustrating to watch. While I like Hoot Gibson and liked the light comedic touch to this film, sometimes the humor is a bit broad and low-brow. Additionally, folks sure seemed to get very mad very quickly in this film! With a bit more polish, this could have been a really good western.

The movie begins with lots of stock footage of a rodeo. It's supposed to be of Hoot winning the Bucking Bronco competition, but it's pretty clearly grainy old footage. When Hoot goes to collect his prize, it turns out that the man handing out the prize is his father---and they DON'T get along. They love each other but Dad can't seem to be able to show it. As a result of an argument soon after this, Hoot storms off to make his own way in life. Through a rather strange set of circumstances, he and his dopey friend find themselves on a ranch--and soon Hoot is the foreman. But eventually he learns that an evil company is trying to force his new employer out of business--and the company is co-owned by his Dad!! How could this be? What is Hoot to do? And, what is Hoot to do about his boss' daughter? Overall, this is a better than average B-western that, with a bit more polish, could have been exceptional. Worth seeing but far from Gibson's best.
