Storyline

A Mexican bandit is about to be executed in the United States. So his brother takes over a train and holds the passengers as hostages unless his brother is released. Now both the Americans and Mexicans are baffled as to what to do. But one of the passengers, who wrote the letter for their captor, has a suggestion; call Hank Brackett and Johnny Reech, two mercenaries. Which they do. And as expected they do come up with a plan but the President of the Railroad is not sure if it will work. Written by <rcs0411@yahoo.com>

Quotes

Mr. Davenport: Are you trying to tell us, Major, that the United States Army can't do the job here, but that two men possibly can?
Major Bill Buckner: I've already told you, Mr. Davenport, we can't move troops across the border. I know that. I don't know what they can do, if they take the job, but whatever it is, it can't be much worse than Morales has in mind, can it?
Mr. Davenport: Where can they be contacted?
Major Bill Buckner: Casa Grande Hotel, Casa Grande, New Mexico.
Mr. Davenport: Miss Baker, get a telegram off to Mr. Hank Brackett and Mr. Johnny Reach at that address....

A great TV action film
4 March 2005 | by See all my reviews

Watching Lamas tiptoe up to, but never crossing, the line between acting and overacting is great fun to watch. Taylor, as usual is great as a rough soldier of fortune. This film should be shown to today's network execs to show them how good a TV movie can be...great acting, direction, story, and authentic locations. Too bad "Bearcats!" didn't last longer as a series. A good outdoor based action show with a good cast (and great weekly guest stars) might be a hit today instead of the usual doctor and cop shows. And I love the car...a beautiful 1914 Stutz Bearcat. You car & film buffs out there might be interested in knowing it's the same car John Wayne drove in "Wings of Eagles" and I believe it to be the same one used in the Disney film "Summer Magic" with Haliey Mills and an episode of "Green Acres". It was later owned by a friend of mine and is in a California collection.
