LaRue Deserves Better
14 August 2012 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

Reacting to sky-high food prices, local vigilantes take on crooked town setup that includes the sheriff.

I'm afraid that even by generous matinée standards this is not a very good entry. "New PRC" unfortunately looks a lot like the old, and here the budget is bare bones, with familiar locations, a smattering of hard-riding, and some poorly staged whip cracking. La Rue is persuasive as usual, but Fuzzy is given too much silly comedic time, maybe to fill in for the sparse dialog. Then too, I could sure use more of the lovely Ms. Holt, but then I'm no longer the girl-hating front row kid I once was. Anyway, too bad LaRue got stuck at lowly PRC; he certainly qualified for better backing than what he gets here.
