good pilot for the short lived show
6 March 2001 | by (Long Island, New york) – See all my reviews

this film is the pilot to the show "Manhunter". This film shows the Ken Howard character (Dave) returning home from the armed forces. He attempts to settle back into civilian life, when a gang of outlaws terrorize his town. Dave becomes a bounty hunter, seeking revenge on these evil people. The performances are quite good, especially Howard's.
