The director has a different visual style. Occasionally his tilted camera angles was distracting. the violent scenes of the railroad enforcers terrorizing the families were too many and went on too long. Connections/relations/conflicts between other characters could have been developed more and the script needed more work.

A very well made TV western from ION. Reminds you of the classic westerns with the railroad trying to take everybody's land.

Western sterotypes abound in this variant on the old standards. Can't find anything memorable - the american hero dies for his rights and values, the baddies win with firepower and the goody among them comes up with Win-Win-Win compromise which offers all hope for the Great American Dream to sequel. Pity the Heroine who weans The kid away from guns didn't change american attitudes more?

OK, so I knew this movie was going to be rotten, after it all it was a "blockbuster exclusive release" which I guess means it was a movie that sucked to bad to actually be released into a theater, so it went straight to video. [i]
So, it was unbelievable that the star of this thing was Bruce Boxleitner, a heavy hitter I'll admit, I mean who could forget his Bobby Joe in "Sixpack Annie". A real gem........Or, his Lee Stetson in "The scarecrow and Mrs King" a true monument in television entertainment. Enough said, I'm sure Bruce is a great guy, but this movie is something you should show your grandparents as they are drifting off to sleep on the couch on a Tuesday night. Don't bother pausing this one when you have to use the head, you won't have missed much. Sorry Bruce, lookin forward to Tron the movie

So many westerns to me seem so much alike, and this falls into that. It's not bad. It can be a bit graphically violent, decent story though, okay cast. Ernest Borgnine is good. I just never got real involved in the film.
