Quotes

Title Card: From the history of the Old West comes this story of the Outlaw Trail. In the 1870s, renegades and gunfighters rode almost unchallenged in the Territories of Wyoming and Arizona. Law enforcement was practically unknown, dependent as it was on widely-scattered army posts and local sheriffs who were ineffectual against outlaw gangs which attacked swiftly and escaped into the rugged wilderness.

Outlaw and lawman join forces against Indians in action-packed western
9 October 1998 | by (Tecumseh ok) – See all my reviews

A tight script, decent dialogue, and good supporting cast, separate this one from the routine shoot 'em ups. Sort of a "buddy movie" with Cameron, the lawman and Tucker the outlaw, forced to set aside differences to avoid a sioux massacre. Fix, as one of the bad guys, delivers cynical wit throughout. They just don't make 'em like this anymore.
