Well, at least McCoy is good.
2 February 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

"Roarin' Guns" is a pretty standard B-western. The plot is very familiar and you must accept that too many of the citizens are idiots in order for it all to make sense. But, at least the film stars Tim McCoy--one of the best cowboy stars of his age. Unlike the 'pretty- boy' cowboy stars who wore ultra-fancy duds and sang, McCoy was more of a no-nonsense star who actually had an amazing life off camera-- being a real honest-to-goodness trick shooter who traveled the country putting on shooting expositions as well as being a Colonel in the US military (serving in both WWI and WWII). So, for his presence and acting, the film gains a point or two.

As for the plot, it's all a very standard sort of clichéd story. Some baddie is trying to grab up as much of the west as he can and to do so he sets rancher against rancher. And, of course, our hero, Tim, is there to save the day.

The biggest reason I cannot score this one higher than 5 is that there are a few brainless moments. One had an anonymous caller phone the sheriff* and say that Tim murdered someone--and the idiot sheriff just assumed Tim was a killer and went to arrest him. Wow...what a rube. Overall, not a terrible western--and one that at least has a few good moments.

*Yes, like too many westerns of the 30s, they have telephones and this makes it a strange sort of hybrid modern and old west sort of story.

FYI--The title screen says 1926 not 1936. Apparently whoever made this graphic didn't understand Roman numerals.
