Storyline

The Everetts, two brothers and a cousin are trying to make a go of their ranch in Kansas but Deke Turner, someone who wants to see them fail, is doing everything he can to see that happen. The younger brother's hero is Billy the Kid, and while during an argument with someone who works for Turner, he kills him in self-defense but Turner makes it appear that he killed an unarmed man. He is then urged by his brother to run. When he is caught and is about to be brought back to Kansas to be hung, his brother and cousin break him out. And now pegged as outlaws, they decide to get back at Turner by robbing him. Written by <rcs0411@yahoo.com>

Ranks Right Up There With The Best
14 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Just watched this on TV and I think it is great! So what if it doesn't look like Kansas, and the jeans aren't 1870. Good grief!! The story line was terrific and I only wish they had made sequels....a whole bunch, as far as I'm concerned. What was happening was typical of the old west and what they did was really unique and made for a great movie. Everyone should give it a chance and not be so "nit-picky". The actors that played the brothers were a perfect combination..they couldn't have done any better..especially Reiner Schone who added such a special twist to the story, with his way of fighting. He is my favorite. I am now going to do my best to track down the DVD and get it so I can add it to my collection, proof I think it is that good.
