Tex Fletcher plays.. Tex Fletcher.
3 January 2006 | by SpuzzlightyearSee all my reviews

When ex-football player (!?!) Tex Fletcher (playing a character named "Tex Fletcher") arrives in Texas to visit his father, he comes across a gun battle and joins in, knowing instantly who's the good guy and who isn't (smart guy). It turns out those bad guys are part of Jim Davis's gang, who look to rustle more cattle for money and take over other people's land. It seems Jim's Father got in the way of the plan, and, well you guessed it, Tex is out to Avenge His Father's Death! The plot in this one is actually not bad, although there are SOME western clichés, there's some perks of originality here and there (having Fletcher come from a football team for instance) and the ending, which takes place in a sandstorm! was highly interesting and entertaining. Tex Fletcher is pretty good here. I've never seen his work before. He's a sleepy eyed, marginally attractive cowboy, and he can sing pretty good, singing songs such as "When I Get Back in The Range" and that all time classic "They Won't Stretch My Neck If I Know It". The supporting cast is very good as well, with bonus points going to Jack Mchugh as Fletcher's goofy sidekick Butch. A surprisingly entertaining movie!
