“The Last Cowboy” has a little bit of a hokey factor to it, but overall is a pretty good movie. It gives a wonderful feel of what a rancher’s heart must be like, displaying this cowboy’s deep devotion to his land and animals and then ultimately to his family. Anyone interested in cattle, horses, ranching and small-town life will be drawn into this film.
There is a bit of language to be aware of (as noted in the language section), but nothing vile and no cursing. Other than the language the movie is pretty clean and leaves a good taste in your mouth for the majestic beauty of the great outdoors. “The Last Cowboy” earns Dove’s stamp of approval for this great modern Western. Yee Haw!
