A Fair Enough Time-Filler
6 July 2008 | by See all my reviews

This "B" thriller doesn't start off too promisingly. I never did find flash-backs too engrossing and I really object to speeding up the action in fist fights.

Fortunately, after a display of these faults, the movie settles down. Both director and photographer make effective use of the Utah desert locations with some fine vistas of horseback riders against rugged mountain slopes and peaks. Budget constraints have obviously precluded the use of running inserts, but we do get some suspenseful helicopter shots in the action climax.

The plot is a familiar one and the dialogue is no more than serviceable, but it is acted out with reasonable conviction. True, Miss Kirk is a little too skeletal for my taste, and I found Mr Basehart just a bit too rough and ready to be wholly convincing. As for the chief villain, he's not much for personality. What Raymond Burr could have done with that role!

The pace of Werker's direction is inclined to be a little slow, but it does allow the script to build up a bit of tension.

A Mickey Mouse music score doesn't help the movie any, but the Utah locations are a definite asset. All told, a fair enough time-filler.
