PRANCER (Theatrical Release USA 1989)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.5|5.0 Starsììì

is sweet, but weak without much thought put into its storyline. While Sam Elliott superbly casts as the western hero, he is a little too rough as supporting character for Rebecca Harrell Tickell  in this movie. There is one scene in the film where Sam Elliott, while reading a newspaper, becomes distracted by outdoor sounds that works well; but he does not convey enough emotion to carry the majority of the scenes for this particular story well.
