STAGECOACH: THE TEXAS JACK STORY REVIEWED
“Stagecoach: The Texas Jack Story” is a fairly standard Western. While shot independently, I appreciate whomever is envisioning Trace Adkins as a lead in these kinds of movies. He’s got that gritty Brian Keith feel that you’d find in a lesser McLaglen western. He’s big, surly and honestly feels like a person that would’ve lived in the era. So, when his wife is killed by a vengeful one-eyed bastard, it’s not long before Adkins is back in a life of crime to hurt the man that killed his wife.
Judd Nelson’s Sid Dalton works as an amazing counterpart to Adkins. While looking a little chunky in his old age, it seems to fit the character. Adkins and Nelson aren’t playing reluctant outlaws, but they don’t want to hurt anyone. What these guys want to do is send the villainous Calhoun a message. Unfortunately, this leads to people getting shot and not the clearest of endings. Is it happy? Well, in the way that an older Western would end. I wouldn’t be surprised if this material got turned into an anthology. After it all, it looks pretty good for a Western shot in Canada.
