It was like an old black and white western filmed in the 30's.

Desolation Canyon is quite possibly the worst "made for TV movie" I've seen in the past 10 years. The writing was very amateurish and predictable. Patrick Duffy is totally unbelievable as a "cowboy" and Stacey Keach delivered so many ridiculous lines that I constantly had to remind myself that it wasn't his fault that the movie was so bad. I actually snickered a few times at the ridiculous writing and by the end of the movie I was hoping someone would say "Let's head them off at the pass!!" I have long maintained that the most important aspect of any movie is NOT the acting but rather the writing. I also maintain that more recognition should be given scriptwriters than actors at the Academy Awards. Well, the writers of Desolation Canyon should probably have their writing credentials suspended until they can show some originality. Hallmark can do much better than this and usually does; shame on you Hallmark for foisting Desolation Canyon on your viewers.

b shiznit questions my appreciation for a good movie but I stand by the above review and invite him/her to watch "Broken Trail" with Robert Duvall. AMC aired Broken Trail over two nights and it was simply outstanding. Minimal if any special effects were used and Robert Duvall is most likely going to be nominated for a "Best Actor" award. Broken Trail makes "Desolation Canyon" look like an inferior high school play!! Mr/Mrs Shiznit is obviously easy to please.
