Interesting, gritty, western.
2 August 2014 | by dazzlin-70-37657See all my reviews

I liked this movie. I was a little surprised by the "good-bad" leading role by Buck Jones. I had not seen this film before, but found it a lot in the tone of "Hell's Heroes". It is gritty and well acted. The fight scene in the end is spectacular, with horses and riders circling and shooting. The photography is well shot and defined. And, which has nothing really to do with the plot, I found the tack on our heroes horse to be wonderful! If you like westerns with a more unforgiving nature, this one might be for you. It has a large cast and realistic scenery. There is no music background--just the silence of the desert. I really felt the suffering displayed by the actors.
