Train robber tries to go straight
26 April 2002 | by (Broken Bow, Oklahoma) – See all my reviews

Not to interesting tale of a 2 bit thief who decides to live the straight and narrow. After coming to a small town and working a series of dead end jobs plus making a mess of his social life, The Kid figures the straight life has it's drawbacks. Dull dialogue and a snail slow pace made this kid blue.
