Nothing But A Watchable TV Movie
22 July 2010 | by Rodrigo_AmaroSee all my reviews

"Convict Cowboy" is a good chance to see Jon Voight acting nicely, something very different of his latest performances where most of his characters are annoying and bossy. Also a good chance to see Kyle Chandler with a fine performance too. Here Chandler plays a drunken cowboy who was arrested after invading a shop. He's sent to a country prison where most of the prisoners's job is taking care of the horses, and join rodeos like the cowboy of the title played by Voight, convict of murder and sentenced to remain all his days in prison. They start to work together and develop a strict sense of trust and friendship.

Nothing happens in the plot except the involvement between Chandler and some dangerous inmates who keep bothering him to make some drug transfers to them. You'd probably seen that many times before in other prison movies. And of course there's the rodeo, eight seconds on the bull, dramatic moments with slow motion scenes and that kid of stuff.

A movie to watch when you have nothing better to do, or if you're a fan of Voight, Chandler, Marcia Gay Harden (she plays an veterinary and love interest of Voight's character), Ben Gazzara, Glenn Plummer and Stephen McHattie (best performance in the movie as the villain). That's it! 6/10
