A Subpar Remake
Michael B. Druxman | Austin, TX | 01/05/2010
(3 out of 5 stars)
"This television remake of a minor 1947 John Wayne western classic not only suffers from the fact that star Lou Diamond Phillips is not the "Duke," but also from a script and direction that is definitely subpar.
Phillips is a good actor, as is his co-star, Deborah Kara Unger, but attempting to step into boots previously worn by a movie icon like Wayne is always a mistake.
The basic story about a wounded gunman who is taken in and reformed by a Quaker family is also viable, but writer Jack Nasser and director Terry Ingram, who shot their picture during a Canadian winter, do not seem to understand the western genre. The dialogue is staid, the pace and action sequences are static and the movie is, frankly, dull.
The DVD contains a "Behind the Scenes" featurette.
