Storyline

A escaped prisoner kills the wife and son of a former sheriff, Matt Austin, who sent him to jail long ago. Austin rides in pursuit and locates his quarry in a small town saloon. During the ensuing gunfight, an innocent bystander is shot and the murderer escapes. As a penance, the ex-lawman agrees to help the dead rancher's wife fend off a land baron's attempt to steal her property for its valuable water rights. Written by David Bassler

Grand Western
13 July 2008 | by See all my reviews

In A GUNFIGHTER'S PLEDGE, Luke Perry plays a lawman whose wife and son are murdered by a criminal he has twice incarcerated. Following the killer's trail into Mexico, Perry inadvertently kills an innocent man and takes the man's body home to a ranch where the dead man's sister and son live. Perry stays to help, and crosses paths with a mustache-twirling villain right out of DUDLEY DO-RIGHT, played by a sneering Thomas Howell in a big black hat and attire. Howell of course wants the dead man's ranch and will stop at nothing to get it, including hiring the gunslinger Perry has been seeking. The ending contains a twist. Perry is convincing as a haunted, tired lawman, although Howell is a little too Snidely Whiplash for my taste. Beautifully shot and staged in Simi Valley, Calif.
