Good Child Hood Memories
11 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Growing up with a father that was a real cowboy. I grew up watching westerns from a very early age. I grew up watching all of the standards i.e. John Wayne, The Lone Ranger, Bonanza, Big Valley and even older stuff like Roy Rogers and Gene Autry. This movie while not great acting was very good to an 8 year old. I recently saw it again on the encore western channel and every time I see it I still enjoy it. This movie is a throw back to the old westerns that when you look a them today are very cheesy. But if you look at the Lone Ranger they are quite similar in their morale compass. They tell a good story where the bad guy gets his and the good guy gets the girl and the horse. While I agree with another poster that this was probably a failed pilot it is good for what it is. I think that some people think that all movies have to be great art in order to be any good. While they are entitled to their opinion I respectfully disagree.
