Extremely lightweight Hoot Gibson vehicle here. Using the familiar "stranger comes into town just about the same time a mysterious avenger starts putting the bad guy to pasture but everyone is too stupid to put 2 and 2 together" theme westerns like to utilize, (they also like to put superhero names to them as well) Gibson plays the title role, but no one seems to know this, because he's also a mild-mannered cowboy coming back into town after his father's death (and also to clear his business from shady cattlemen). There is of course the lame lame love interest, which doesn't really blossom until the final 30 seconds of this movie (and other movies too). So, if you're not expecting much, and you better not be!! This is an alright rabble rouser.
