Solid second outing for Alex McArthur!
12 August 2002 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

In this second of five made for television westerns Alex McArthur once again impresses as Duell McCall a wanted man who is searching for the witness who can prove he is NO murderer. McArthur does his usual fine job of playing McCall and that is what drives this film. The plot involves crooked law men and crimes for profit that are standard points in all these movies - but presents them in a refreshing way. Perhaps not the best in the series but certainly up to the usual high standard of action adventure that makes these TV films so enjoyable. Good story lines, good action and a great lead in the form of McArthur.
