Familiar story, though decently done
5 January 2003 | by (Victoria, BC) – See all my reviews

The story here - orphaned boy learning to become a man in the wild west - shouldn't be unfamiliar with any viewer, and the various turns in the story will be equally anticipated. Still, it's fairly well done for what it is, with a good performance by Benson (though his character is made to recover from his father's death surprisingly quick.) One interesting thing about the movie is that while it was aimed at a young audience at the time (and was rated PG), some of its content (violent and bloody killings, skinny dipping, etc.) may surprise certain parents. However, none of this is presented in an exploitive way, and gives the movie a good degree of honesty.
