Disappointing
28 July 2003 | by (California) – See all my reviews

As Douglas Redfern, Bob Steele just isn't engaging. He's handsome and a decent actor (most times), but he doesn't have the energy or charisma that a role like this needs. Everybody else in the cast is extremely wooden, rarely doing anything other than recite their inane dialogue as though they were porposefully repressing any and all desire and ability to actually act. The camerawork is fairly static and in only a few scenes do the filmmakers attempt to show off the beautiful countryside the movie was shot in. So, yeah, the jokes aren't funny, some of the acting is (when it shouldn't be), the characters are as flat as cardboard cutouts and the story is predictable and slow. Only for Bob Steele fans and hard-core 1930s B-Western affectionados.
