Storyline

It's the late nineteenth century in the Wyoming Territory, known as one of the most lawless regions on the continent. John Goodnight, a traveling circuit court judge, hates lawyers, even when he was one himself, but believes in justice. Such an example of his lawyer hatred is toward Lucius Breed, the leading lawyer in his latest stop of the small town of Rollins. John considers Lucius as corrupt and self-serving as many of the people John convicts. In Rollins, John is reunited with the former Callie Bluepointe, a former flame from their days in Chicago a decade and a half ago. John will learn why Callie stayed in Rollins instead of what was her plan to travel to San Francisco: the birth of her son, Will Donohue. John learns of Will's existence in an auspicious manner: Will is the only person captured among Deke Spradling's gang in their attempted getaway following Deke's robbery of the local bank, the second such in recent memory. Although Callie has not seen Will in a few years after... Written by Huggo

Not as good as first one but better then most of the recent westerns. I say C+
8 March 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"The difference is justice, you'll know it when you feel it squeezing around your neck." Judge John Goodnight (Perry) rides into a town to dispense his own brand of justice. When the town is attacked Goodnight captures a young bandit who turns out to be the the son of a local woman. When Goodnight uses the boy to find the head of the gang more secrets are revealed. After watching the first movie and actually thinking it wasn't that cheesy I went in expecting the same from this one. I was wrong. I realize that this one was also on the Hallmark Channel and I should have expected it but this was way cheesier then the first movie. The main plot and reveal actually made me hang my head and shake it at the ridiculousness of it. I will say though that when compared to the newer westerns that have come out this is still better then most. Which is kinda sad. Overall, not as good as first one but watchable. I give it a C+.
