"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.
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?Read more ›
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.

Although I like the first of the Goodnight series best, they are all good to watch. It's interesting how justice found it's way to the wild west to settle grievances of so many... Read morePublished 11 months ago by Becki Merritt
