the unusual, almost comic outlaws make the film worth seeing.
13 August 2009 | by (S. Paulo, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Louis L'Amour, wrote at the beginning of "Buckskin Run" that one of the common mistakes people make about the West is that they would not react accordingly to bandits coming into their town. Remember Northfield Minnesota, writes L'Amour and Coffeyville where Jesse James and the Daltons were defeated by the local people. Those locals fought Indians and the Civil war, so they sure knew how to shoot and defend themselves. This western shows the opposite and four outlaws make whatever they wish with a small town. They are so barbaric, chaotic, and violent almost behaving as children, that there is a slight comic streak in their villainy. The main question is how long will it take for people to react. Dale Robertson, is the reluctant hero, but what makes this film worth seeing are the outlaws.
