Turncoat cavalry officers invade half-way house.
13 August 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Five Cavalry officers are being held at the fort where they will be facing a military court-martial. But before the trial takes place, the five officers escape. During the escape they end up killing two guards which will make all the men face the death penalty when caught.

The group is led by a ruthless man named Ed (Richard Devon). Also along is a drunk, a half-wit, a cautious man and also a young scared kid. They end up at half-way house where they force Zeke to cook for them as they wait for a stagecoach that is suppose to arrive later in the day.

When the stage arrives, with Luke and Simon on board, Ed wants the two to drive them to Canada. When Luke and Simon refuse, Ed decides to shoot Zeke which in turn will make the two drivers change their mind. They leave the house with the officers on board and Zeke on the floor shot.

Again, Richard Devon plays the cold-hearted villain to perfection as his actions will make even the seasoned viewer feel disdain for the character. The story is a typical western tale that has been played out a number of times- but because of the interactions of the characters, this story seemed more fresh than expected. Turned out better imagined.
