MONTE WALSH (Television Release USA 2003)

Ben Meyers’ Rating: 4.0|5.0 Starsìììì 

Monte Walsh—good story that features Tom Selleck—does not have anything in it that other western movies have not already included in a variety of storylines…like the effect barbed wire had on the demise of the cowboy or the rise of machines that would later be used to herd and track animals. The presentation and storyline, however, are quite good and the acting is outstanding. There are some sexual scenes in the movie, but not as graphic as other movies often portray. This movie will satisfy the western movie fan.

This western film is about: the last of the cowboys as corporations begin assuming control of larger ranches, the motor car begins assuming the role of main method of travel, and herding cows on open range is curbed with the establishment of property boundaries defined with barbed wire.
