Fairly tense, small rancher vs. big bad rancher down under.
10 August 2001 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Jeff Fahey and Tushka Bergen in a fairly tense story of a battle between little ranchers and a big one down under. The big one is greedy and crooked and wants everybody's else's land including Bergen's family ranch. When her daddy dies she is left alone to try and stop him but gets an ally in Fahey a local business man. Of course that turns the bad rancher's sights on him and the bad guy sets out to ruin Fahey's business so he can't help Bergen. It comes down to a last desperate cattle drive that the bad men are willing to kill to prevent. 2.5 stars out of 4
