Good guys do wear black...though this is far from McCoy's best.
I have long enjoyed Tim McCoy's B-westerns--mostly because he didn't sing, wasn't so pretty and was a real-life tough guy. However, just because I enjoy his films doesn't mean I'm blind to his misfires--and this one is a misfire.
The film has an ultra-simple plot. The ugly Mitchell brothers want a government contract to supply horses to the army, so they vow to destroy Tim Walker (McCoy) and take away his contract. This is a huge problem with the plot--it's painfully obvious to EVERYONE from the start what they're up to and the brothers just look like two hobos they took off the street--not menacing villains. Additionally, the film is a bit slow and the rest of the characters rather uninteresting. Clearly a film for his fans but practically no one else.
