Boy becomes a man the hard way
20 May 2000 | by (Broken Bow, Oklahoma) – See all my reviews

Good tale of the old west in which a young boy becomes a man after his family is wiped out. Old story line, yes, but it still made for a fine film. B.J. Thomas was effective as the expert gun handler who was unable to fire at another human, even in his own defense. One of Robby Benson's best performances.
