High Plains Loser
What do you do when it's the 1950's and a group of thugs rapes your girl as you go back into the empty movie theater to retrieve her necklace? Well, if you're Coleman Justice (Cole to his friends), you repress your emotions and hide behind your favorite western movies. In fact, you grow up to teach a class on the subject(?!). And whatever happened to that police officer that just watched the rape and then killed the thugs in a vendetta fashion? He's the security guard at the very college you work at! You become his best and only friend, even though the teenagers seem enthralled by every word from the geezer's mouth. I'd give this one credit for breaking the cliche of the beer guzzling, dope smoking college student, but these kids are so far from being realistic that they may have well been muppets. I can't believe the makers of this film were allowed to use footage from some of the most classic westerns of all time! Poor Henry Fonda and Charles Bronson. They each appear on screen enough times to warrant a paycheck! The world, especially in these trying times, sure could use a good hero. Too bad this "Killer Cowboy" is a worse idea for a vigilante then Estelle Getty in "Stop, Or My Mom Will Shoot!" What are the police up to in this town anyway?! They're worse then Cole's students, who don't put the pieces together until 2/3 of the way in. Some very silly dialogue and horrible acting will keep bad movie lovers happy, but only watch this one if you like to torture yourself. Stick 'em up!
