The railroad is coming and not all people want to sell their ranch to
make way for the new rail line. The local officials working for the
railroad are violently encouraging the families to sell their ranches
at the railroad's price. A railroad official from Chicago has come to
help speed matters up, but in a non-violent manner.
Ernest Borgnine is one of the ranchers who are refusing to sell.
Working for Ernest Borgnine is a former gunfighter (Luke Rivers /
Casper Van Dien) who has tried to leave his violent past behind, and a
teenage boy (Michael H. Barnett). Among those working for the railroad
is a former gunfighter friend (D.C. Cracker / Bruce Boxleitner) of Luke
I generally liked this movie as I favor Westerns. I did feel the script
needed more work. I thought there may be a connection between Luke
Rivers and the teenage boy - and if there was - I missed the
Connections/relations/conflicts between other characters could have
been developed more. I am uncertain if this is because of the script,
the direction, or if the actors didn't have the 'heft' to pull it off.
James Stewart, or other 1950s Western actors, had the gravitas to imply
much with little.
Because a Mexican shawl is so reminiscent of Clint Eastwood in his 'Man
With No Name' spaghetti westerns, Casper Van Dien looked 'wrong' when
he took to wearing one late in the movie. Instead of enhancing his
gunfighter status, it diminished him in my eyes as he could not compare
The director has a different visual style. Occasionally his tilted
camera angles was distracting. I disagree with his overuse of tight
closeups - especially during fight/brawl scenes. I couldn't get
involved in the fight/brawl when I only saw the person who threw the
punch or the person who received it with no good establishing shots as
to which person was fighting who.
I also felt the violent scenes of the railroad enforcers terrorizing
the families were too many and went on too long. It was more than I
expected from a TV movie. It says something when the credits lists as
an actress: "Terrified Woman".
On the plus side, the movie did try to present people on both sides of
the conflict being right and wrong, good and bad. You may be right but
sometimes it is hard to stop progress. I believe the "Aces and Eights"
referred to losing with a winning hand. Within the Western clichés the
movie tried to be different, and while it didn't always succeed, at
times I admired the effort.
