Decent Barry Entry
23 August 2003 | by Mike-764See all my reviews

Story of two Pony Express Rider friends who take different career paths after the famed service is terminated. Tennessee (Barry) becomes a deputy sheriff to Bat Masterson, while Tommy (McTaggart), who was setting up the riders to be ambushed an robbed of their mail, joins up with a gang of riders headed by a freight line controller opposed to the territory becoming a state and therefore no longer having the monopoly of his service. Obviously the two are bound to have a showdown when Tennessee learns that Tommy is a murderer. Okay B-western, with decent action and good lead from Barry. English's direction looks shaky in the first half of the film, but paces it nicely at the finish. The movie's main drawback is that it does become too cliche. Rating, based on B westerns, 5.
