A good solid western.
4 December 2012 | by (USA the Wild West) – See all my reviews

I've seen about eighty percent of all westerns made and this remake of John Wayne s "Dawn Rider" has a whole different feel... First of all, the good guy's don't ride white horses or wear those ten gallon Stetsons... Next the plot line was different, yet all fit together in the end all the loose end where tied up and had a good feel to it. The beginning of a movie is best reinforced by the ending; like connections in real life. Also, Slater and rest of the cast seemed genuine in their parts,just enough to bring credibility to their acting skills... Last of all, this is a story of redemption for those who have changed their ways and that's not a bad message within a plot! The beautiful thing about a low budget western like "Dawn Rider" is that the story can be told without a lot special effects, making "Dawn Rider" a very human nature based film for real.
