Your basic western, made memorable by the late Silverheels
31 October 2002 | by (Oakland CA) – See all my reviews

Thoroughly mediocre Ford vehicle has him as the West's toughest bounty hunter (?!?). He lets the son of the guy he just killed follow him around, then eventually gives him a job. The son gives up his plans for revenge, opting to become a bounty hunter himself instead. Wynter is given a role that is thankless window dressing, and Silverheels is the only person in the movie who looks in shape for the West. Some good action, and it was good to see Silverheels in a movie again (though his part was fairly small), but bare plot goes on too long for its own good.
