Searching the criminals
24 July 2000 | by amikus2000See all my reviews

This complex-plot action Western offers Stewart Granger all possibilities to show his talent. The officer-actors try hard to fulfill it. A good budget enabled the director to build a great natural thriller-western. The fist-fights ought to be in the dark, the brightness-button doesn't fit it, but the whole story!
