A release prisoner comes to North Fork to kill McCain.
10 August 2013 | by See all my reviews

Character John Anderson does a nice job playing the part of John Beaumont an aging man that has just been release from a Kansas prison. Beaumont has made his way to North Fork to find Lucas McCain, the person that sent him to jail for robbery.

Time as not been good for Beaumont as he looks older than his years and his eyesight was weaken to the point of having to wear very thick glasses. Beaumont carries a shotgun and is very effective with his shooting. Lucas will have to be alert for a person that he does not even remember.

This is rather a sad tale of how revenge can eat at a person's life. John Anderson plays the part to perfection and makes the viewer feel for his past. A nice story that was well played by the entire cast.
