Very well done
8 October 2017 | by Thomas001See all my reviews

This is a straight forward story about crocked lawyers, judges and politicians. It was done very nicely, great sets, great dialogs. And it felt really good that all the bad guys got nailed in the end. That was back in 1868. We have progressed over the next 150 years. We now have gun laws and honest lawyers and politicians that fiercely defend justice.
