Johnny Mack Brown Battles Domestic Abuse, Armed Robbery, And White Slavery!
17 April 2010 | by See all my reviews

Lawman Johnny Mack Brown is called in to hunt down a gang of cutthroats who rob gold shipments as they pass through the desert, murdering the escorts with silver bullets. In a bizarre twist, the baddies own a silver mine in which they force a handful of scrawny men to work as slaves!

A standard-issue Saturday matinée B-western, this is straight-forward and pleasant enough entertainment for fans of the genre. Brown's always a good hero, the heavies extremely nasty, and leading lady Helen Erickson extremely good-looking!

Filled with great cinematography, Courageous Avenger features some breathtaking rocky desert scenery that add to the film's atmosphere, as do the scenes of the creepy, half-crazed old men chained to a spinning wheel. They look as if they belong in a 1930's zombie movie!
