5.0 out of 5 stars Western Justice 12 July 2008
By Flight Risk (The Gypsy Moth) - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Westerns are the Greek Tragedies of the movie world. Well done, they are human, gritty works of art. Done poorly, they can be melodrama. It is fortunate that there are enough of us left who remember the Westerns from the 50s and 60s and can work the formulas correctly. This is one of the good ones.

Matt Austin (Luke Perry) is an ex-sheriff in a town in Texas who has hung up his guns to live a peaceful life with his wife and son on his ranch. Unfortunately, he has some unfinished business who has just escaped from prison, in the person of Tate, whose brother Austin killed a few years before. Austin hears that Tate is loose; but in going looking for him, he is outthunk by Tate, who goes directly to Austin's ranch and murders Austin's family, and escapes again. Austin, decimated, dedicates his life to finding Tate and making him answer for his crimes.

The scene shifts to California, to a town run by an Oil Can Harry of a bad guy (C. Thomas Howell) named Mr. Horn. Mr Horn is trying to run a local Mexicano family off their land, where they have lived for 90 years, because they have something he wants; a bountiful spring, the major source of water in the area. Mr. Horn knows that if he controls the water, he will become the most powerful man in the area. He also knows he has a limited time to pull off his claim to the land; the tax assessors are on their way, and when they come, his claim will be negated. And, of course, he is encountering stiff opposition from the family, composed of a brother Eddie and his widowed sister and her boy. Mr Horn is getting very pushy.

As a last resort, Eddie - against his sister's wishes - rides to a nearby cesspit of a town full of roughnecks and gunmen to hire help in protecting their land. He has the misfortune to be hiring Tate, who has made it to this ugly little town, at the same time as Austin gets there, having tracked Tate to the place. In the gunbattle that ensues, Eddie is killed and Tate gets away. A man of honour, Austin brings Eddie back to his sister and his land.

Amaya, the sister, to her credit understands that the death was accidental, and accepts Austin's offer of help as small recompense for the loss of her brother. Of course, word gets around, and Mr Horn learns of the new hand on the Aguilar ranch. He turns up the heat with hired guns, which inevitably includes - you guessed it - Tate, who has his own agenda.

There is nothing here that hasn't been done many times before, but if it is acted well, it is worth seeing again a new way. Everyone here does their part admirably; Luke Perry is getting the Old West man-of-moral-fiber thing down, and even bears very slight resemblance to a young Clint Eastwood (no rocks thrown, please, I know I'm toying with an icon). C. Thomas Howell, as Mr Horn, is well done, all angular and black-clad and mean; Kim Coates, as Tate, plays a perfect slimeball; and Jaclyn DeSantis, as Amaya, portrays a strong woman of the Old West, determined not to lose her land.

This wasn't "Shane", but it wasn't bad. They're turning out good Westerns these days sometimes; and this one is pretty good. Strongly acted, with good dialog, and believable. The score was good, a little overpowering at times, but it fit the movie. This movie will satisfy your Western fix.

5.0 out of 5 stars Real Western with Character 27 Jun 2009
By Victor R. Williams - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a great story about a retiring sheriff who accidently shoots an innocent man in a saloon. The movie brings forth many good values and the leading lady is beautiful and virtuous. If there was anything I could add it would be a sequel!

4.0 out of 5 stars A good western with a true theme 12 July 2008
By Roger Bagula - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
The Spanish land grants were raided by the early eastern Americans
in the 1850's. In this story an family Rancho is being laid siege
by the local big land owner. First the brother is killed while trying to
recruit 'pistoleros' in a border town by a sheriff hunting the killers of his wife and child. He comes to the rancho and the sister and her son
remind him of his own lost family.
He and a few other good men make a stand.
In this one case the land is held, but in too many historical cases,
in the western states that wasn't the actual case?!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Action Movie 16 Mar 2011
By carolyn - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Luke Perry, he amazed me with his acting, playing a cowboy. I had never seen him in this type of movie. He should do alot more westerns, cause he made me believe he was a lawman back in those days. Not too many men can act, and look western, but he threw this performance out the park. So all you Luke Perry fans, and western movie watchers get this movie, it's super great. All the actors, were so good, that I couldn't stand the bad men, even thou they were playing the parts. You will watch it over, and over time after time. As my self being a great-grandma, this high stepping granny says you all are missing a great movie.. You won't be disappointed at all, Come on all You Grannys who love to watch all those men in tight blue jeans, and think your 20 again, you will love it......

4.0 out of 5 stars good western 20 April 2009
By Gladys L. Cotton - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I first saw this on TV and liked it. I love the beautiful settings in this western, and the scenery which is different from most. Best of all, I like Luke Perry and his acting. He has a handsome, rugged face, which has the capacity to look kind when needed, and positively hard and calculating when called for. That is an unusual quality and what adds to his acting ability. It is pretty much predictable, for which I would normally only give three stars, but the whole together, for me, makes it a four star film. If you are looking for a western with a difference, this isn't it, but if you are a fan of westerns, this one is great.
