This film takes up three years later with the Civil War having drawn to a close and various kinds of people heading west either looking for a new life or to wreak havoc and cause trouble on those less fortunate. On that note, with both Union and Confederate soldiers now out of work the influx of these men is being felt in the Texas Panhandle as lawlessness substantially increases. It's during this time that the former slave "Britt Johnson" (Tony Todd) engages in a fistfight with one particular troublemaker by the name of "Carl Glenn" (David Fox) which is subsequently broken up-but with Carl determined to continue the fight another day. Sure enough, a couple of nights later Carl rides out to homestead where Britt lives and-not realizing that Britt isn't there-- inadvertently shoots Britt's good friend "Allen Johnson" (Christopher Reeve) instead. If that wasn't bad enough, he also shoots and kills Allen's wife "Sarah Johnson" (Nancy Sorel) in the process. Saddened by this tragic turn of events Britt accepts an offer by the commander of a nearby fort "Colonel McKenzie" (Lawrence Dane) to become the new town marshal-and his first assignment is to track down Carl Glenn and bring him back alive to face justice. Now rather than reveal any more I will just say that this turned out to be a sufficient final installment to the "Black Fox trilogy". Admittedly, I would have preferred a slightly better ending but all things considered it was satisfactory enough and I have rated this film accordingly. Slightly above average.
