Right on life's path
22 December 2014 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

You can't go wrong watching River's End, a film set in modern Texas about a rural sheriff and his grandson who he's trying to set right on life's path. There's a missing generation here as Barry Corbin's son and Sam Huntington's grandson was killed some years earlier. Unlike that western from television the Guns Of Will Sonnett, Corbin hasn't been able to get through to Huntington.

After Huntington's lackadaisical attitude blew a high school basketball game Corbin decides that the kid needs some challenges. When he gets in a scrape it's either jail or a trip by canoe down the Pecos River by himself. That will show if Huntington has the right stuff.

As this is a family film do we need to ask if Huntington has the right stuff. He meets some challenges including some unexpected ones from a pair of fugitives who kidnapped young Amanda Brooks when they carjacked her parent's car.

Corbin gives Huntington a cassette tape and it was the most enjoyable part of the film as the sheriff/grandpa gives some good lessons in camping and for life.

A good one for family audiences.
