Mediocre Range Busters
16 April 2010 | by (The Lonesome Prairie) – See all my reviews

Ray "Crash" Corrigan, John "Dusty" King, and Max "Alibi" Terhune head to the town of Rock River, where an old pal, the current marshal, is besieged by bandits and angry townspeople who not only blame him for not stopping them, but end up unknowingly electing the gang's leader as the head of the vigilance committee.

There's a few okay action scenes and Dusty sings a good song, but this sluggish entry in the Range Busters series is mostly talk, with our heroes spending way too much time not battling the bad guys. All three have definitely done better work!

Once again, there's a scene where Elmer, Terhune's ventriloquist dummy, moves independently of Max's arm. That's pretty creepy if you ask me!
