Storyline

In the early 20th century, some convicts while on a road gang escape and one of the convicts is Zach Provo, a half Indian, who was sent to prison during the latter part of the 19th century. He escapes with 6 others to exact vengeance on Sam Burgade the lawman who not only captured him but was also responsible for the death of Provo's wife, at least in Provo's mind. Part of his plan is to kidnap Burgade's daughter, which prompts him to strap on his guns and go after him on horseback. Can Burgade who has been retired for sometime still have what it takes to track Provo down? Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com

Detached...Diluted...Disappointing...Deja-Vu
16 June 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A Movie so Derivative and Dull that without Shame. So much of this Film had come before that this Rip-Off is in Violation of any respect due its Predecessors. The Action is presented in an Unremarkable, Unrestrained, Mirror image of a paint by numbers New Violence kit.

The Star Cast is uninspired and seem Uninterested, probably because they feel a Sense of detached, diluted Deja-Vu. It tries to have a Hard Edge with a Soulful Protagonist but delivers a Dud and a Soulless Villain with absolutely Amoral Behavior, but presents a Pathological Bore.

The Editing and Exposition is Hackneyed and intrusive and the Movie seems to be quickly stuffed into the can and shipped before anyone Notices that there is Nothing Present beneath the wrapping.

The Western, after its explosive Ten Year run from Leone to Peckinpah, didn't need anymore of this type Imitative fodder for its Unfortunate Demise, as the Genre quickly Fell Out of Favor.
