Review

A star rating of 2 out of 5.

TV star Clint Walker is a homesteader who arrives on his slice of Wyoming with his wife and family. Almost at once he runs into opposition from the locals - the banker and a rival landowner - but there is also a greedy grizzly bear that seems to single Walker out for special treatment, slaughtering Walker's valuable herd and bringing about the mortgaging of the property. Part Jaws, part Shane, it's really a children's film that relies on its wildlife and mountain photography.
