2.0 out of 5 stars Very disappointing
I generally like Tom Selleck and Sam Elliot films, but I lost interest in this one about two-thirds the way through. Very routine, run of the mill fare and what possessed them to think that every time Elliot and Selleck were galloping their horses, to play 'good 'ol boy' type music straight out of The Dukes of Hazzard!! It could have been so much more but the director...

5.0 out of 5 stars THE SHADOW RIDERS (1982), 25 Dec 2008
The civil war is over and Traven brothers are going home. But Mac (Tom Selleck) and Dal (Sam Elliott) find on their arrival is a town ravaged by Confederate rebels who refuse to surrender. Dal is captured and they try to hang him, But Mac saves him. When they reach home they find their parents emotional because the Traven younger sisters are kidnapped by Guerillas for sale in Mexico. Kate (Katherine Ross), Dal's sweetheart is also with them.
Major Cooper Ashbury(Geoffrey Lewis) had kidnapped them and the men are to sold to the silver mines in Mexico. Determined to rescue their loved ones, Mac and Dal need someone who knows Mexico. Uncle Black Jack (Ben Johnson) is in jail, so they break him out using dynamite. They head south to finish the war they thought already ended.
Some for the prisoners are taken by boat to Mexico. Sheriff Miles Gillette takes a possie to follow them across the border over river Rio Grande. The gang plan to take prisioners on a train. The movie is not in widescreen. Andrew V Mclaglen directs well and keeps the story moving. What will happen to the girls? Will Mac and Dal manage to save them? What will the sheriff do about uncle Jack?
Watch and ENJOY. (ENGLAND. UK)

I generally like Tom Selleck and Sam Elliot films, but I lost interest in this one about two-thirds the way through. Very routine, run of the mill fare and what possessed them to think that every time Elliot and Selleck were galloping their horses, to play 'good 'ol boy' type music straight out of The Dukes of Hazzard!! It could have been so much more but the director couldn't make his mind up what sort of film to make.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, solid, entertaining western., 2 April 2009

A better than average, though never demanding, western that sometimes betrays its TV origins in budget and feel. Selleck and Elliot hold the thing together. File under wet afternoon, feet up, entertaining cowboy.

2.0 out of 5 stars One of the poor efforts, 16 Dec 2011

I am not great admirer of Tom Selleck and actually felt that Sam Elliot held what there was of this film together. The location was great and captured very well on camera. The story has been done before however, but this version was much too facetious for me. Overall, not worth the watch!

A kind of sequel to The Sacketts - same cast - different story. It's great to spot the old time cowboys, but this is pretty average. Mind you, with the choice of new westerns severely limited, still worth a look.

I like most films with Tom Selleck or Sam Elliot in and this was a good story with humour. Wish more of their films were Region 2.
