Storyline

Audie Murphy is again the kid who puts on a badge to catch the bad guy, skillfully played by Barry Sullivan.

Crisp and enjoyable Western
30 November 2004 | by lorenellroySee all my reviews

One source I regard as essential when it comes to Westerns is a book by Phil Hardy called " The Western " and forming volume 1 of the Aurem Encycopedia of the cinema .It lists genre movies by year with potted critical reviews .Except that it does not give this robust and unusual little movie its own review relegating it instead to an appendix where it is mentioned but not singled out for comment

Bad error from a normally reliable writer because this is a most enjoyable movie .Murphy plays a neophyte Texas Ranger with the somewhat cumbersome name of Seven Ways From Sundown Jones .He is sent in company with a grizzled veteran to track down Jim Flood a charismatic and freethinking outlaw .Jones captures Flood but not until his partner is killed and he begins the task of returning Flood to captivity .Flood turns out to be a likable man and a friendship develops between the two men whose journey is interrupted by bounty hunters and Indians before reaching its climax at Rangers headquarters

Sullivan is outstanding as Flood and Murphy is more than competent as the Ranger and there is a strong supporting cast

Check this out .Its well made ,well acted and well written .It should not be forgotten or overshadowed by other bigger movies
