Formulaic and predictable Western
13 October 2003 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The Younger brothers were overshadowed in life by the James brothers and this has continued to be reflected in movies.Pictures where they have taken centre screen have been of a lesser quality than movies where they have played second fiddle to the James boys. This is a pretty dire Western ,one which depicts the notorious outlaws as saintly ,put -upon figures striving to remain within the law but hounded by a former Pinkerton agent who blames them for his lost job and for his crippled leg.Also striving to ensnare them is a woman outlaw who wants them as part of her bank robbery gang Stolidly acted by a second string cast and directed with little or no passion this is at least brief and can boast a lively musical score. Otherwise it is so routine as to be forgettable almost as soon as it ends.
