| Never bring a bow to a gun fight
Remake of a rehash of a remake. Ridiculous, completely predictable, not to mention totally unbelievable yarn dealing with 4 bank robbers who kidnap a young boy in order to locate a point in unknown territory. Of course, the parents, armed only with bows and arrows, go after junior in a heroic, but dumb, effort to recapture the kid. Why they never picked up one of the thugs guns when presented the opportunity is way beyond me. And believe me these criminals were stupider than Moe, Shimp, and Larry. I doubt they could have knocked over a lemonade stand and gotten away....maybe one brain could have been rounded up among the four. All this negative opinionating doesn't mean I didn't like the tale: it was exciting and the scenery was something else. It reminded me of "River Wild", only not nearly as good.
