| Not Bad
This movie made for TV. Aired on April 10 1988 starring James Arness as Thomas Dunson, Bruce Boxlietner as Matthew Garth and Ty Hardin as Cotton. Thomas Dunson as a dream and the dream is to have the biggest cattle ranch in Texas. Years later, Dunson has forefeel his dream, however he has one problem? There know place to take his cattle to market unless he takes his cattle across 1000 dangerous miles of Texas land. Dunson also doesn't have to much help and there's several dangerous. Not only does Dunson have to deal with the dry conditions, he also has to deal with Indians, Cattle Rustlers, and a few unexpected circumstances that Dunson didn't count on. This wasn't a bad TV movie because it had what makes a good western. Plenty of action adventures and cows. Based on that I give this movie 6 weasel stars.
