This movie tries so hard to be like the original, they practically follow the same script. But there were several problems, first, James Arness does not play the mean spirited cattle baron very well. I could not see him killing a man in cold blood or beating a man with a bull whip. He has the tendency to smile when he should be biting nails and spitting blood.

Then again, Bruce Boxleitner does not seem to love James Arness like a son. There is no quiet respect between them.

Most of the other problems I feel were directorial mistakes. How did Laura Johnson beat Thomas Dunson to Abilene when she was with the wagon train and he was riding hell bent for leather. I could have believed she left before him, but not 12+ hours, long enough to spend the night with Matthew Garth.

The only person who played his part well was Ray Walstan as Groot the cook.
