About typical in quality to a McCoy film.
When "Daring Danger" begins, Tim (Tim McCoy) is having a silly brawl with one of his cowhands, Bull Bagley. I say silly because they look as if they are in fast-forward mode--and it looks awfully fake. Soon, Bagley goads Tim into a shoot-out--and Tim doesn't know that Bagley unloaded his gun! Not surprisingly, Bagley shoots Tim but because Tim is a hero, he's going to live--even though he was shot with a .45 at about 10 feet--which would kill you 99.999999994% of the time!
Time passes. Now Tim is on the lookout for Bagley who has skedaddled. This brings him to the town of Dry Gulch where he learns that a local boss-man is trying to force a rancher and his daughter off their land. Not surprisingly, Bagley works for this evil boss-man. But, Bagley's hand was shot and he cannot have the requisite shoot-out until later--and in the meantime, Bagley and his boss plan on killing Tim.
The film is worth watching simply for a chance to see Vernon Dent (a frequent co-star in Three Stooges and later Buster Keaton films) singing a duet with McCoy. Yes, for the first time in seeing several dozen Tim McCoy films he sings!! This is pretty weird.
Otherwise, the film is about what you'd expect. Sure, there is the lame fight at the beginning but on the other hand, it has one of the more violent ends to a baddie I can recall in a B-western, as Bagley gets the crap shot out of him!! Plus, while it's clearly a B-movie when it comes to the plot, McCoy films tend to be better than average due to his being a little more believable and manly than the pretty-boy cowboys. Much of this is because in real life, McCoy was quite the horseman and shooter. For more about this, read through his very interesting IMDb biography.
