Review

Our Score
In this bland and clich├ęd made-for-TV western, Wes Brown broods handsomely as a laconic and vengeful bounty hunter who goes in search of his long-lost father (Kevin Sorbo) following his mother's murder. But the gunfighter's presence quickly escalates a violent land feud between rancher Sorbo and his villainous neighbour (Greg Evigan), resulting in a repetitive and unexciting procession of verbal confrontations, ambushes and shoot-outs. With events weakly executed, key plot points are just thrown away, making the film's main body seem like a mere filler in preparation for the equally ineffective climactic showdown. Consequently, while the story brims with tragedy, it lacks emotional impact, despite Sorbo's strong efforts to convey his character's feelings.

Summary

A bounty hunter tracks down the father he never knew, hoping to get help avenging his mother's murder. He discovers his estranged parent is now a rancher engaged in a desperate struggle to stop a rival taking his land, and is married to a woman who is hiding a deadly secret. Western, starring Wes Brown and Kevin Sorbo.
