Lawman

Typically ham-fisted Western from Death Wish Winner. Stoic lawman Lancaster arrives in the town of Sabbath on the trail of seven killers (carousing cowboys who accidentally caused the death of an old man); their protective boss, Cobb, and the town's lily-livered sheriff (Ryan) don't plan on giving him much help; neither do the townspeople. Would-be thoughtful Western which ultimately resorts to killing and ketchup to make up for its lack of style and originality. A remake of Man with the Gun (1955).
