Good action western TVM!
12 August 2002 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Alex McArthur returns for a third time as the title hero of Desperado. Still searching for the man who can verify he is innocent of the murder for which he has become an outlaw. This time around the character Duell McCall (McArthur) becomes involved in what appears to be a case of kiddnapping as he tries to rescue a damsel in distress and evade the law at the same time. McArthur has become quite adept at his portrayal of a western hero by now and I felt this made for TV movie was one of the more enjoyable westerns i have seen for quite a while. Rod Steiger makes a good impact as Silas Slaten who demands our lead find his daughter or else! Lise Cutter returns as Duell's lovely Red haired, Green Eyed girlfriend. The plot is more complex than it first appears and the action sequences are as good as the other Desperado TV films. This is more Clint Eastwood than Lonesome Dove so do not expect character driven drama but appreciate a good action western with solid performances and a good story line.
