In his 2007 review, Dennis Schwartz gave the movie a grade of B, describing it as "a familiar Western formulaic set-up of a good man caught by circumstances and trapped in a life of crime" and stating "The old-fashioned story leaves a lot to be desired, but the cast takes it seriously and makes the unbelievable look as believable as possible."[1]
