Having seen the original Lonesome Dove film with Tommy Lee Jones playing one of the main central characters, I was somewhat daunted at the idea that Jon Voight would be able to fill his shoes. WRONG! within a few minutes of the film starting it is easy to forget that he did'nt feature in the first film.
I loved Lonesome Dove, the trials and tribulations of the cattle drive from Texas to Montana, I found it both exhilarating and heart wrenching. Return to Lonesome Dove follows on perfectly from where the first film left off, another tale of loyalties, hardships and lives entwined.
It is so very easy to lose yourself in this film, once started I had to sit through from start to finish, like a good novel I could'nt put it down, or should I say push the pause button.
A highly recommended sequel to a classic first film.
