Okay La Rue film
7 February 2014 | by (Glen Cove, New York) – See all my reviews

This time out Lash plays Jack Garret a law man looking into trouble being caused by the Yantis gang which is being led by an old compatriot of Billy the Kid. The gang is trying to control the land which is due to have the railroad pass through. The question on many people's minds is did Billy really die 20 years earlier or is he the brains behind the recent trouble?

It may sound like sacrilege but Lash La Rue playing anyone other than Lash La Rue is kind of hard for me to swallow. Sure there is no real attempt at him being any one other than Lash, but it makes no sense in the course of the plot. The name change kind of forces Lash to try and be something he's not. For better or worse it just makes everything seem off.

Is it a bad film? No. But between the name change for Lash and a really annoying gold digger with her eye on Fuzzy the film just seems off the usual mark.
