I love Louis L'Amour, Tom Selleck and Sam Elliot. Throw them together and you get a great movie.
Westerns, when written by the likes of Louis L'Amour, are a wonderful read. I started reading his books when I was a little kid living with my grandparents in Oklahoma. We were country people and our culture was so similar to what L'Amour described that it was easy for me to place myself in his stories.
The few that have been made in to movies don't disappoint (except one, but not for bad writing-just choice of actors). This particular book (movie) is about the chaos that ensued when the Civil War ended. Two brothers return home to Texas to find their sisters as well as one of the brothers' finance have been kidnapped for sale to Mexican slavers. They promptly go in search of the girls to rescue them.
Louis L'Amour's heroes are somewhat predictable, but the stories are always good and add two of the best looking TV Cowboys (Tom Selleck and Sam Elliot) in and one is in for some great entertainment. And (and this is important) no sex, cussing, and virtually no blood/guts.
Great movie even for kids.
