This is a well produced, sometimes exciting, often silly, TV remake of the classic.
8 February 2001 | by See all my reviews

The scenery and the production values make this a pretty watchable TV remake. The cast is generally good, although Abbie Dalton is a bit much as Calamity Jane. The best acting is provided by David Macklin as a young trooper who comes apart at the death of his friend in an Indian attack.
