"The meek ain't gonna' inherit nothing west of Chicago!"
31 July 2011 | by (The Lonesome Prairie) – See all my reviews

Mysterious gunslinger Sam Elliot becomes a guardian angel to genteel easterners Kate Capshaw, Tom Conti, and their young son, who've unwittingly attracted the attention of a particularly nasty gang of cutthroats.

A simple story with lots of violence, there isn't much to ponder here. However, it's always a lot of fun to watch Elliot shoot and drawl his way through a made-for-television western. Matt Clark and Patrick Kilpatrick always make good villains as well.

One thing that made me kind of uneasy though, was watching Elliot's character's almost constant drooling over the married Kate Capshaw, often times in full view of her husband and son!

On a side note, I miss these old HBO Pictures of the eighties and nineties, before they became all political, all boring, all the time.
