Tomahawk Trail is a movie that is most enjoyed by those either younger than eight years old (where the children can play cowboys and Indians) or those who are 50 and older. I know that Chuck Connors has been in many types of films, yet I remember him mostly in westerns like this movie. The movie moves along at a fairly good clip. The best thing about this movie is that it is only an hour long. The movie can't afford to have any down time. This is a cowboy and Indian movie. Tomahawk Trail is either best enjoyed on as a Saturday afternoon matinée or as a late at night movie. The actors do okay in their roles. However, once the movie has played, it is easily forgotten except for Chuck Connors. Bring your popcorn and your Western boots to this one, Partner.
