Overall, this film contains great moral attitudes towards human life and great lessons in forgivness, reconciliation, and judgement. John lives and breaths in the prison like a prisoner, so he better relates to his prisoners. He treats them fairly, so he is a model of justice and equality. There is no sex, nor nudity, so the romance in the film resembles that of the old 50’s westerns, which is rare in today cinema. The film also has a clash of good and evil, a simple element to all sphagetti westerns, and in the end you have the face off with classic gunfire. This film would have been great for families, moreso for families with ten year olds who love westerns, except the gunfire gets a little graphic, as well as the human to human assults, as well as language that was not really needed. I would rate this as an average film. There is really nothing to special about this made for television movie. The acting is adequate, the direction is conventional, and the plot is nothing to deep. The writing was paceful, with no out of place dialogue, although I was left with the feeling that I have been down this territory before. Just another recycled western.
