Off-beat story of uranium prospectors in the west.
24 October 1998 | by (Tecumseh ok) – See all my reviews

This is a terrific, but rarely shown modern day western. Uranium hunters in the west are set upon by claim jumpers, on horses, and helicopters. The totaly believable tale, told in flashback moves along at a great pace, each character fully developed. Basehart, cast against type, is great as the maligned mining engineer. Moves to a terrific conclusion...see it,tape it.
