plodding unimaginative plot
7 February 2015 | by (Brooklyn NY) – See all my reviews

Sorry, but this Hoppy outing disappointed me.

My main complaint is that the basic plot was laid out at the start of the movie. Hoppy was told the general area where the rustler gang was headquartered. Hoppy and California were to join the gang and smoke signal Johnny Nelson and the Bar 20 posse to round up the bad guys -- and that is exactly what happened. No mystery or surprises. Early on Hoppy happened to meet an old adversary who readily told Hoppy where the headquarters was. The boss of the gang learned of Hoppy's deception too late. There were a few twists that mainly served as filler.

I could do without the singing, and Brad King and Jennifer Holt as Hoppy's young sidekick and heroine did nothing for me. Other sidekicks and heroines in the series were much more engaging.

One scene surprised me, for a Hoppy film, for its unnecessary violence: Hoppy gets the drop on the gang leader at the end of the movie. He orders the leader to holster his gun, which he does. Hoppy then holsters his gun, encouraging a quick draw contest, which is what happens -- Hoppy outdraws and kills the leader, who was really not particularly villainous.
