Fun, direct-to-cable modern western

"Just a fun, good time western. Good action and plenty of plot twists. It is very much like a episode of Walker, Texas Ranger, but much better acting and action (no martial arts though). Kris Kristofferson is good in his role and believable as a texas ranger who is investigating a murder in order to clear a friend's name. Joan Severance is the FBI agent who helps Kris with the case and she does a nice job. As always she is very easy on the eyes and nice to watch (Kris must have enjoyed the love making scene with her, who wouldn't). Willie Nelson's character is what really makes the movie; he is a wisecracking con-man who loves to gamble and enjoys playing jokes on other folks. This role seems like a natural fit for Willie: that lovable cowboy outlaw image he cultivated in the 70's and early 80's. Definitely recommend this movie for a fun evening of tv watching!
