This average TV western is kept absorbing by the cast, which is led by Burt Reynolds as a jailed bounty hunter who teams up with feisty orphan Amy Jo Johnson. They form part of a posse that sets out to track down David Figlioli, the ruthless leader of a gang that murdered Johnson's family. However, this is only half the story, as accompanying them on the trail is Reynolds's son (played by Seth Peterson), who is deputy to Bruce Dern, the uncompromising sheriff who imprisoned Reynolds after he killed in self-defence. There's an explosive opening and an inevitable sharpshooting showdown, but the personal feuds don't always atone for the dull patches en route to Mexico.

Plot Summary

Western adventure starring Burt Reynolds and Bruce Dern. Gunfighter John McKay finds himself heading to Yuma prison on a trumped-up charge, and seems to have run out of luck. But his redemption and freedom lie in the hands of a grizzled marshal - provided that he assists in the hunt for a vicious killer.
