The story line, while not new or original; was retold in an interesting and ultimately heartwarming way. Bruce's portrayal of ex cop out to help kids, who have fallen foul of the law with his version of tough love, was wonderful to watch. The young actors who portrayed the lost souls were great, and my only criticism is the budding romance between Bruce and June Andersen's characters just didn't fit with the movie. It was neither fully explored or explained. "Hope Ranch" illustrates one way programs can do that by laying out discipline and responsibility on the kids for practically the first time in their lives. They show that through hard work and dedication, kids learn that they really are important and can contribute something meaningful to society.

Bruce Boxleitner really is super as J.T. Hope, a former cop who starts a program for troubled youth on a ranch owned by him. Three kids arrive at the ranch and the program starts out shaky, but they come around. This movie is a well acted drama, the supporting cast, Barry Corbin, Lorenzo Lamas, and Gail O'Grady are awesome too.
