Luke Perry returns to the lawless frontier, starring as Circuit Judge John Goodnight, a man hell-bent on seeing justice served. Traveling alone through the Western Territories, Goodnight finds himself reunited with the beautiful Callie Bluepoint (Stefanie von Pfetten) in a dusty town terrorized by Deke Spradling and his gang of outlaws. When
Callie reveals a long-kept secret about one of the bandits, Goodnight faces a crisis of conscience and becomes more determined than ever to put the Spradling gang behind bars and set the record straight. Bonus Features: Interviews with Luke Perry, Cameron Bright, Stephanie von Pfetten, Teach Grant

4.0 out of 5 stars a sequel that is not inferior to the original... June 23, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
In a long interview, Luke Perry (the creator and executive producer of the "Goodnight" films) says he doesn't want to make Westerns that overwhelm the viewer with action. He's more interested in drama, and (particularly) where he can take the character. (We see at the beginning that Goodnight still drinks to excess, but nothing much is made of this in the rest of the film.)

"The Measure of a Man" is arguably better than the first film, as it focuses on one story, and does so efficiently and without unneeded padding. It is similarly low-key and reserved, and likewise has a Really Nasty villain. Not surprisingly, Goodnight tosses his guns aside and defeats the villain in a fistfight, rather than gunning him down.

I cannot praise the cinematography enough. "The Measure of a Man" is one of the best-photographed color films I have ever seen, including any theatrical film. It's gorgeous, and perhaps worth seeing for that reason alone. The photography justifies a Blu-ray transfer, though I doubt we'll ever see one.

If Mr Perry wants to keep making these films, I'm game to keep watching them. They're not "high art", but they're a not-stupid way to while away 88 minutes.

"The difference is justice, you'll know it when you feel it squeezing around your neck." Judge John Goodnight (Perry) rides into a town to dispense his own brand of justice. When the town is attacked Goodnight captures a young bandit who turns out to be the the son of a local woman. When Goodnight uses the boy to find the head of the gang more secrets are revealed. After watching the first movie and actually thinking it wasn't that cheesy I went in expecting the same from this one. I was wrong. I realize that this one was also on the Hallmark Channel and I should have expected it but this was way cheesier then the first movie. The main plot and reveal actually made me hang my head and shake it at the ridiculousness of it. I will say though that when compared to the newer westerns that have come out this is still better then most. Which is kinda sad. Overall, not as good as first one but watchable. I give it a C+.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Justice" Continuing Success March 7, 2013
By MonaD
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This continuation of "Goodnight for Justice" is as successful as the first movie! The story line is well organized and very well executed. Once again Luke Perry does a fabulous job as Goodnight; he plays the law abiding hero very well, while at the same time displaying his common sense! Love these movies!

4.0 out of 5 stars WANNA SEE MY GAVEL? June 20, 2012
John Goodnight (Luke Perry) is a traveling circuit judge. We get the idea he is a womanizer who likes his drink, but as a Hallmark film, it doesn't dwell on the topic. He runs an unusual court and doesn't like it when people have legal representation. He tries the cases himself. He runs into an old girlfriend Callie(Baroness Stephanie von Pfetten), who was a stage actress he knew in Chicago.

When the bad guys come to town to rob the bank, a man is killed. One of the bank robbers is captured...who happens to be Will, the son of Callie. The town wants to hang Will (Cameron Bright, Alec-Twilight saga). John, in spite of his past relationship to Callie does not recluse himself, but finds a way to save the boy and his mother from an angry vigilante mob who demands a hanging.

The film is hokey and cheesy as any Hallmark. People can't seem to shoot and hit anything, even at close range. Many movie cliches. I will say in spite of all the shortcomings it somewhat held my interest. Film appears to be aimed at one parent youngster who stray due to the lack of the proper role model.

Parental Guide: Some shooting deaths and a fist fight. Talk about out of wedlock pregnancy and doing the right thing.

In the realm of perfectly pleasant, but relatively unremarkable, made-for-TV movies, this Hallmark Movie Channel original serves up exactly what you might anticipate. After the ratings success of 2011's "Goodnight for Justice" (which reunited 90210 pals Jason Priestly as the director and Luke Perry as the star), this folksy sequel follows frontier judge John Goodnight to a new post in the unspecified Western Territories. "The Measure of A Man" sticks pretty true to its non-threatening TV formula with gentle action, chaste romance, and lessons on tolerance and responsibility. But I suspect the core audience for which this film was intended wouldn't have it any other way. Heck, this isn't HBO's "Deadwood!" As such, the movie is mildly engaging. However, while I enjoyed it enough on its own terms, I don't know that I'd be rushing out to make a DVD purchase. My recommendation: check it out for free on the Hallmark Channel before deciding you want to own it.

Within minutes of arriving in his new township, Perry makes cute with a local lass (Stefanie von Pfetten) only to discover that she is a long lost love that he hasn't seen for over 15 years. What a stroke of luck! But this enormous coincidence is just the first in a series of increasingly unlikely occurrences which drive the plot. A ruthless gang of bandits soon blows into town to rob the bank and cause general mayhem, and one is caught alive. Wouldn't you know it? It just so happens to be von Pfetten's estranged son (Cameron Bright). Between dissing unscrupulous lawyers and single handedly acting as the town's voice of reason (let's just say there are lots of scenes with disgruntled townsfolk mumbling their displeasure), can Perry salvage the young outlaw's soul? And what about disbanding the vicious criminal horde?
