Wow...Tim McCoy plays a major sap in this one!
18 March 2012 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Even for a B-western, this one is chock full of clichés and poor writing. While I am a huge fan of Tim McCoy's films, I must admit that this isn't a very good one.

The film begins with the audience hearing about a bandit by the name of 'Blackie' Miller (wow...who would have thought a guy with THAT name would have been a villain?!). He's the head of a gang and the Rangers are out looking for him. McCoy is, of course, a Ranger...and so is his no-account brother. Despite ample evidence that the younger guy is bad, McCoy sticks his neck out to protect him again and again--even when he learns he's a member of Blackie's gang!! Later, when the brother is caught by Tim with the stolen loot, Tim claims HE stole it to keep the jerk brother from going to prison!! This made no sense and took this whole 'brother's keeper' thing a bit too far! Of course, later, Tim gets out of prison and catches the baddies. As for his brother, in one of the oldest clichés in films, he is redeemed when he tries to help Tim--and is shot by his own gang members in the process! Finally, when Tim meets up with Blackie, Tim throws down his guns so they can duke it out. Any sane person would have just shot Blackie and claimed the reward!! But, as you see in this flick, McCoy's character might not be in his right mind!! Pretty weak all around, but enjoyable.
