Wow, you have to really search the viewer comments for this picture to find one with anything positive to say about it. As someone who tries to find the silver lining in most things, I didn't think this film was too bad. At least it was somewhat better than another Trace Adkins film I caught on Netflix titled "Stagecoach: The Texas Jack Story". With Adkins' name in the credit list for this picture, I thought he'd have more of a role in it, but he had to settle for the part of a guy who got hung by the main character. It was a nasty way to go.
I guess with their name recognition and celebrity status, Kris Kristofferson and Adkins are listed at the top of the cast credits here, even though Michael Pare did most of the heavy lifting as a man on a mission to find his runaway daughter. That was a tough break for Clay's (Pare) family, losing a young son to a rattlesnake bite, and then having to deal with a daughter's forced descent into prostitution. Still, I couldn't figure why a guy like Ty Stover (Adkins) would trade away a pretty gal like Lily (Brittany Elizabeth Williams) for a fire alarm bell. Well, he got his bell rung by Clay well enough in due time.
Kris Kristofferson had an interesting role as the wise bartender who had that unusual wolf story when Clay first arrived in Wichita. His story was meant to serve as a warning to the revenge seeking Clay, but he wound up thinking better of things to make his way to Dodge City for that final showdown. That was kind of cool.
And what can you say about that unique form of torture old Lavoie (Tom Sizemore) came up with? I'd say more about it but why not catch the picture to check it out for yourself. That, a gal named 'Girl' (Marie Oldenbourg), and a mini-lesson on the Harvey Girls ought to make a viewing worthwhile for any Western fans out there. And you'll also get to find out which wolf won.
