Gunsmoke- "One Man's Justice"
20 December 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I guess I am partial to anything starring Mr. James Arness, as to the 'Gunsmoke TV Series' it does take some adjustment to delete those Episodes from your mind and focus on the 4 TV made movies. But I did enjoy this movie very much and would rate it a '10' as with the other 3 movies. It did take awhile to find this VHS of "One Mans Justice" but the wait was worth the effort it took to find it. It looked as if it may have been filmed in 'Old Tuscon' and had some beautiful scenery. I would rate this movie as a 'Must' for true "Gunsmoke & Matt Dillon" fans. The role Mr. Bruce Boxlietner played in the movie was very well and made the movie more enjoyable; with his superb acting. Of course what more can be said of Mr. James Arness, but Fantastic.
