Spotlight on a Legend
15 November 2010 | by ironwill6619See all my reviews

James A. House's portrayal of the legendary lawman, Bass Reeves was truly outstanding. His look, demeanor and presence made me feel like I was watching the real Bass. This is a true credit to the casting director of this film. Additionally, the role of Bob Dozier played by the talented Craig Rainey was inspirational and indeed the work of a true professional. One of my favorite performances in the film was delivered by Loki D. Wolf. His rendition of the great Bass Reeves' son, Bennie was riveting. I found that the comedic spots in the film added to the liveliness of the story. From the research I did on Bass Reeves, this film seems to be very historically accurate. So if your looking for a cool western to kick back and watch I believe that "Bass Reeves" is a great choice!
