Goofs

When Jacob Early (Peter Fonda) pays the workers, including Red, for the completion of the new fence, the paper money was very clearly $20 bills, with the most current design, meaning the bill design from 2003, with the larger '20' in the upper corners, and was clearly not available in 1941.

Good movie with good story, but did not have a star value.
20 March 2014 | by (Somewhere) – See all my reviews

This is a sequel to the 2006s 'The Ultimate Gift'. The story commences from where It ended in the first, but after opening few minutes it takes us to the flashback story in the earlier decades. It was not a bad story at all, but it did not have any valuable film stars in it to lighten up. Especially failing to bring back Drew Fuller was the biggest drawback for this sequel. Other than that it was well filmed in beautiful places in the United States. This movie was not bad as you heard about it. If you try it once, you will realise what I was saying. It is a fine B movie.
