Great little gem of a movie starring the outlaws of country music. A lot of people are comparing this tv movie to that of the original starring John Wayne, there is no comparison. The original will always be a classic, and teamed legendary director John Wayne with The Duke.

But, for me it is hard not to like a film that stars Kris Kristofferson, Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, and Willie Nelson. They all do a great job with their roles, and are backed up by a fine supporting cast which includes John Schneider and Elizabeth Ashley.

The film follows the same storyline as the original. Will the stagecoach make it safely to it's destination without meeting its demise at the hands of Geronimo? Will The Ringo Kid get his revenge against the Plummers? How can I find out what will happen? The simple answer is, pick up Stagecoach, and take a trip to the west with The Highwaymen.

Stagecoach (1986)...This movie is a definite must have for western lovers.Set in Arizona,this movie has action from gunfights with Geronimo to the outlaws in Lordsburg.Throw in a love plot for a retired saloon girl to delivering babies among stage stops and you have one heck of a movie.With an all star cast of Willie Nelson,John Schneider,Kris Kristofferson,the late great Johnny Cash,and the late great Waylon Jennings,to name a few,you can't go wrong with this movie.There is even a small cameo with the lovely late June Carter Cash and Miss Jessie Colter.

What a thrill to see all the member's of the Highwaymen together in a movie and playing such memorable roles. I can only imagine the fun they all had while filming this picture. A must see for any fan.

OK, it's not the original. Step back a minute - few movies at ALL before or since the original verison of "Stagecoach" were as good as that movie. Now, move on and look at this version of "Stagecoach" on its own.

It's pretty well written and acted. (June Carter Cash's lines were great, "There's nothing in my contract says I got to feed the Army.") A lot better than most of what I see appearing in the theater today, most of which I won't waste my money to go see.

The only characters I didn't really like were Elizabeth Ashley's Dallas & Mary Crosby's Mrs. Mallory. I loved Elizabeth Ashley in a lot of other roles, especially in "Evening Shade" with Burt Reynolds. I know she's a great actress, but this role, or maybe her dialogue, just didn't work for me somehow. Too overdone. I do like her line to Doc about his fingerprints.

Mary Crosby, a good actress, too, said she campaigned to get this role, because her Dad was in the 1966 version. I understand that. I just thought her character was too bitchy for a Southern lady, especially an Army wife. Again, though, that's the way the dialogue was written, so I guess she was stuck with it. The scene playing as I write this is a good one for her, where she finds out her husband has been wounded. She's strong, but not complaining or bitchy.

The humor is a little dry throughout, you have to pay attention. It doesn't walk up and hit you over the head. And there's no 13 year old talking back at his or her elders for laughs. Maybe that's why it appeals to me.

John Schneider does a great job as the coach driver. Again, not Andy Devine, but, he doesn't try to be. And if he did, it would be ridiculous.

Half the fun of watching this movie is saying, "Oh, there's ______!" spotting other country singers or actors.

Then there's the old saying we use in our household: "It's a western, how bad can it be?"

But, it was fun to see the "Highwaymen" together playing cowboys and indians. Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, and Kris Kristoferson, need there be any other reason to see this movie? Other than the title track there isn't any singing. If you want to see Stagecoach, get the John Ford, Duke Wayne's version ... if you'd like to see a remake of that classic, this is the one for you ... years ago Bing Crosby was in a remake of this classic ... This remake with the "Highwaymen" is the best of any of the remakes.

When you toss in a stoic US Marshal, a devoted but underpaid Overland stagecoach driver, a gentleman gambler, a dishonest banker, a whiskey salesman, a pregnant woman, a saloon madam, a dime novel desperado who was falsely imprisoned, and the charming Doc Holiday you have a motley crew. When you add the Apaches, including Geronimo, and the US Calvary, you have the potential for an explosive situation.

This third remake of John Ford's Stagecoach (1939) is a lively production with a lot of country singers/actors (Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson, Waylon Jennings, John Schneider, Tony Franciosa, Elizabeth Ashley, Mary Crosby, June Carter Cash, and Anthony Newley). Willie Nelson sings the title song which is catchy. The music throughout adds the right atmospheric touches to the desert landscapes of Arizona.

There is humor mixed in with the drama and tension. The acting is low key but very good. The story is well executed.

Doc Holiday's sympathetic comments about the Apaches were a nice touch. Not too many westerns showed any sympathy to the Native Americans and their territorial rights. Manifest Destiny's crossing of the plains and mountains was unstoppable by a people who lived in harmony with the land.

Of course you have the classic gunfight at the end between the falsely imprisoned desperado and the actual bad guy. The gentleman gambler and Doc Holiday are there to make certain the fight is just between the two men without interference from the bad guy's brothers.

This was a 1986 made-for-TV movie. This should not distract from its overall quality. A number of TV movies during this era were finely crafted pieces of cinema.
