Typical B Western
8 July 2010 | by malcolmgswSee all my reviews

This is a typical B Western.Everything you always expect of the genre.Lots of gunplay,but no bloodstains.|Lots of fistfights with chairs and tables going flying.A funny sidekick a bunch of gnarled villains and of course a beautiful damsel in distress.As usual the damsels ranch is being stolen by the villains and of course the Lone Rider comes to her rescue.There are of course the usual quota of songs and a faithful horse who is as obedient as a pet dog.If you like these sort of films then this film is for you,if not no point in even starting to watch this.This sort of film used to be shown at Children's Matinees at Odeons on a Saturday MORNING.
