Storyline

This is the story of Buford Pusser's final days, not only of his life but also as Sheriff. It seems that times are changing and the people of Pusser's town, who once adored him are now fearing him and feel like it's time to make a change. And there are also some officials who feel the same way and are using every means to get rid of Pusser. Written by <rcs0411@yahoo.com>

In a nutshell about how the first film came to be.
22 May 2001 | by yenloSee all my reviews

Did any of the "Rocky" sequels truly match the first one? Of course not. This could be said of this The Final Chapter and Walking Tall Part Two as well. A substantial portion of this picture is about how Buford Pusser becomes nationally known as a result of the original film.
