Thr Range Busters bust up a gang of hooligans ........
13 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Crash Corrigan and his compadres help rid a town of a gang of cut-throats terrorizing the citizenry of the local community. This Range Busters film features a little bit of everything (action, comedy and suspense) in a standard western programmer.

Corrigan had a long career in film, mostly in "B" films. His best work was in the 3 Mesquiteer series, but he does a good job in this routine oater. Terhune was decent comedian, but his ventriliquist dummy often seems out of place in his western films.

This film was fine when viewed in context, but does not leave the viewer with any lasting film memories. An average time-passer .........
