Revenge is sweet
2 August 2007 | by (Studio City, CA) – See all my reviews

John Mack Brown plays the stereotypical bad guy/good guy framed for a crime by alleged friends. After release from prison he returns to home town to expose the real crooks. Tex Ritter is an undercover U.S. Marshal pretending to be an itinerant gunslinger who consistently saves Johnny from death.

There are some other plot twists which help maintain interest and raise the script above predictable. And of course several requisite fight scenes. The love angle is barely a minor storyline and really is just an excuse to wrap the story without resorting to the bad guys being arrested by the local sheriff.

Of course the bonus for western fans is John Mack Brown and Tex Ritter together in same movie. And that is worth the price of admission.
