Reading the comments here I expected a better movie.
The plot is predictable as is the character "development", in particular the father-son relationship. For me, for example, it seems inappropriate that the father denies his son respect after he has beaten up a tough bounty-hunter, but is filled with pride after his offspring has hustled a horse on emeter upon an ascending hill-slope.
The dialogues are flat, the action is mostly unconvincing. Kristofferson and Wilson do a good job, but they do not really throw themselves into this movie.
All in all, I found the movie boring and, at some points, even ridiculous.
Can anyone tell why a Philadelphia-bred lawyer has a punch worthy of a box champion (well, it is mentioned he learned that from his professor, an academic, not a boxer himself, I presume). Well, even if we let that pass, why then can Adams Junior ride a horse like a prairie "indian", sharp-shoot in full gallop, and even draw faster than a die-hard criminal. Well, maybe I wasted my time on the wrong university ...
I know this a TV movie, not a big cinema production. Anyway, only 4 stars out of 10.
