A so-so end-of-the-old-west flick.
23 March 2001 | by (Orange County, CA USA) – See all my reviews

Remember those old westerns where the good guys were really good and the bad guys were really bad and they could shoot a man off horseback at 300 yards and never hit the horse?

Well, "Warden of Red Rock" is cut from the same cloth. The film tells the story of the warden of an Arizona territorial prison (circa 1910) who, past his prime, begins feeling old and decides to make some changes in his life. The film follows him through the usual prison stuff (execution, break-out, etc.) and an involvement with the wife and daughter of an executed prisoner. "Warden..." makes for an okay watch if expectations are kept low.
