First-rate western
3 September 2002 | by (California) – See all my reviews

Tim Matheson and Kurt Russell star in this TV movie (which later became a series) about two brothers who roam the west trying to find their sister, who was kidnapped by Indians as a child. This variation on the John Wayne movie "The Searchers" can stand on its own two feet; it's a sharply-written, beautifully photographed, well acted film, smoothly directed by Lee H. Katzin, with some welcome humor amid the seriousness and a memorable segment featuring old pros Brian Keith and Cameron Mitchell. Keith plays a crusty old outlaw and Mitchell the lawman--and his old friend--who leads the posse that tracks him down and surrounds he and his gang in their hideout. Matheson and Russell work well together, and it's obvious why this became a series. Unfortunately, the series didn't live up to its potential and didn't last long, but this is definitely one of the best made-for-TV westerns to have come out of the '70s--or any other era, for that matter--and could easily have stood on its own as a feature. If you're a western fan, or if you like a good story told well, don't miss this.
