Another good adventure with the Desperado!
12 August 2002 | by ali6969ukSee all my reviews

In this fourth outing for Alex Mcarthur as the outlaw Duell McCall the story revolves around the hero trying to track down some criminals who steal land & claims by killing the rightful owners. As usual there is plenty of good action sequences with some mighty fanciful shooting! Patricia Charbonneau (Emily) is the raven haired actress who plays the romantic interest in this episode although not much goes on between her and Duell.

If you liked the others in this series of made for television westerns than you will find this one up to the usual high standard. If you like good old fashioned action and adventure with decent story lines this is well worth catching if it is on TV.
