Storyline

A escaped prisoner kills the wife and son of a former sheriff, Matt Austin, who sent him to jail long ago. Austin rides in pursuit and locates his quarry in a small town saloon. During the ensuing gunfight, an innocent bystander is shot and the murderer escapes. As a penance, the ex-lawman agrees to help the dead rancher's wife fend off a land baron's attempt to steal her property for its valuable water rights. Written by David Bassler

Good acting from our leads but plodding pace and dialogue do not for a happy movie make.
23 December 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I picked this up on DVD and it felt like a TV movie, and hey ho, it was, no surprise there. But I brought it on the strenght of the lead actors, Luke Perry and Thomas C Howell both of whom are very under rated (Perry especially) It's a familiar yarn really. Sheriff (Perry) is in pursuit of the man who killed his family (Kim Coates almost sleep walking through the role) and Howell is the greedy land baron who wants it all. It feels a bit like an episode of the A-Team, but in the Wild West except that people do get shot.

The film has some strenghts, the acting all round is decent enough, and the photography and sets all blend well, but the dialogue is just so ordinary and the score swamps the film, with music almost all the way through and rather than uplifting the scenes makes them all the more banal. Shame really.
