The most interesting thing in the picture has been skimped
Some months ago Broncho, he was then a gambler, had a pal who was a coward and worse; he didn't care whether he was or not. There was a girl in that picture and she also, as in this one, loved the coward. The bad man of both pictures acts in the same way, as does Broncho in this and the gambler in the former picture. Yet the pivotal character, the pal, carries the center of interest. He is a new character, in this picture, and therefore the picture is new. The picture's fault lies in that it pays too much attention to the situation and not enough to the character; it tells a story that has been told before, but the most interesting thing in the picture, the way the pal reacts when the girl praised him for Broncho's brave action, has been skimped. There is enough in it that's good to make it a commendable release. Anderson; Mackley, Bertram, Brinsley Shaw and others play in it. - The Moving Picture World, August 10, 1912
