    At least hits a certain adrenaline level, and the stunts have panache. If you crave the ''Young Guns'' approach to the Old West, here it is again. show more

    It's a sad day for film lovers when the best thing that can be said about a Western is that it's pleasant.

    A weak whinny of a horse opera tailor-made for those who can't quite locate "Young Guns" or "The Long Riders" in their video store. show more
