    Simple humor and music set this western story on its path. It a tough love teen coming into adulthood in a way that only the old west could have done. Explains a lot about the American psyche and why they are the way they are. Nothing special in the photography or acting. Nibbles:Have a beef sandwich and beer handy

    Interesting, if not all-together successful revisionist western about a young boy (Gary Grimes) who, aspiring to be a cowboy, joins a cattle drive to Colorado, but soon realizes, following one hardship after the other, that his romanticized notion of the lone cattleman is pure fantasy. Interesting side note: this is the first Executive Producer screen credit for Jerry Bruckheimer who would go on to be one of the most successful producers in Hollywood, overseeing such films as BEVERLY HILLS COP and TOP GUN (with former partner, the late Don Simpson) to the PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN series.

    Pappy Bob's pedestrian opinion: I like westerns. In this one, we ride along on the standard western cattle drive with all the ups and downs found along the trail. If you like westerns, you will like The Culpepper Cattle Company.

    :fresh: :fresh: :fresh: (out of four) [color=cyan]Violent and gritty, this fairly successful western creates a great mood and style with a routinely fair plot.[/color] [color=#00ffff][/color] [color=#00ffff]A teenager in the old west wants to be a cowboy. He leaves home when Frank Culpepper agrees to hire him for a cattle drive to Colorado. The mystique quickly wears off as the young man sees the frontier as it really is.[/color] [color=#00ffff][img]http://i12.photobucket.com/albums/a219/hstngs2000/Culpepper002.jpg[/img][/color] [color=#00ffff]The film tries hard to emmulate Sam Peckinpah's newer vision of the west. Well shot and decently paced, the film is a little too thoughtful for its own good. Still, a pretty good effort.[/color]
