Standard Republic Serial
9 January 1999 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Another cliffhanger from the formula. Clayton Moore plays Jesse James, who leaves Missouri to hide in Tennessee (I think) where he uncovers a plot to move farmers off their land so the "bad guys" can drill the large reservoir of oil underneath. In other words, Jesse James is a good guy, and no one in town knows his identity, except for farmer Linda Stirling and her crippled father. Along with his trusty side-kick, there are fights-a-plenty, chases and explosions, too. But all in all, this is very mediocre, even for a cliff-hanger.
