5.0 out of 5 stars Kate November 23, 2008
By Kate
You get your money's worth if you're looking for action, twists and turns. Lots of villians in this dark western. The cast line up is amazing...Eric Braeden (avenging hero), Billy Zane (bumbling attorney plus), Armand Assante (evil law), George Kennedy (nasty father of the villian), James Patrick Stuart (great'll hate him!), Sean Young and Carol Acting, costuming, and sets are great. No high tech stunts, but more believable for this era.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Man Who Came Back February 7, 2009
Very violent film but there is a very clear line between good and evil evident in the characters. Keeps your attention and gives you strong reasons to root for the good guys. Reminds me of early Clint Eastwood man with no name westerns.

4.0 out of 5 stars Victor Newman On The Warpath March 7, 2009
Eric Braeden's the star of this film. Eric Braeden, for crying out loud!! You don't see him in many films. I don't watch the Young and the Restless, but if I did, it'd be for him and him alone. I don't know what it is about the guy, but he's just got something about him. I loved him as the villain in Escape from the Planet of the Apes, but other than that I don't see much of him. After seeing his performance in this film I wonder why he doesn't do more.
In The Man Who Came Back he's the only white man in town standing up for the black plantation workers. When he tries to bring justice to one worker who was lynched, he finds himself framed for the murder by the evil plantation landowner and his son. If this weren't enough, his wife and son are killed by the landowner's son and his evil henchmen. After rotting in prison for a year, Braeden manages to escape and he comes back into town in full on Charles Bronson mode, kicking butt and taking names.
Not the most original of plots to be sure, but it works. Braeden does a great job. He's definitely suited for this kind of film. He has minimal dialogue, but manages to speak volumes through his facial expressions and his eyes. Plus, Braeden just looks like he's from this time period. Some reviewers are saying he's too old for the part. This is a really stupid thing to say. When does a man get too old to be wronged and want vengeance? If still in good health and with a strong will, when is a man too old to be a badass? It's a moronic thing to say, period.
The supporting cast is also good. George Kennedy is in a rare villain role as the plantation owner. James Patrick Stuart makes a rather loathsome villain, as does the always reliable Armand Assante. Hell, as does Peter Jason. This film is full of good villains!

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb, intense Western revenge action October 24, 2011
By J Resb
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
We just watched this intense, superb revenge movie again last night. Very realistic; right out of the gate, you feel for the good folks and hate the bad guys. The cast is excellent and the production values are top-notch. Sometimes when you rent or buy a movie that didn't get a lot of promotion hype, you find out why. Not so here - this is an excellent experience. As I noted at the top, this is one you keep on the shelf for re-viewing later. Eric Braeden is old enough to carry his mission in his face, to credibly portray a man burdened by loss, consumed with a cold hatred for those who've done him wrong, and satisfyingly merciless in wreaking his vengeance. The Man Who Came Back

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting February 15, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
My husband and I were expecting something different, but as a story, it was probably a true concept. That was a terrible era in our country. I just wasn't prepared for the sudden ending. Excellent acting by everyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Totally Awesome February 8, 2009
By Madison
I thought this movie was well acted, told the true story well and was a nail biter from the minute I started watching. I couldn't turn away. Talk about revenge & vigilante justice, It had it all hands down. I loved the movie. It brings back the flavor of the old westerns, done beautifully and at times lots of blood & gore. But it added to the story and was not the reason for the story. Not over the top as a lot of movie that do gore for gores sake. I highly recommend this movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Justice Finally September 21, 2011
Format:Amazon Instant Video
I'd not heard of Thiboux Strike and still not sure if the film took place in Texas. But, it
was a superb action film with a message. One Southern veteran from Civil War had a conscience
to follow dictates of Lincoln when the slaves were freed. One town didn't give a damn.!

5.0 out of 5 stars Eric's back WESTERNS! March 11, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The Man Who Came Back. Was just great! The cast were great! Seeing ex-Heaveyweight Boxing Champion Ken Norton again was,,, WOW! Fantastic! If for some reason you don't like this film. Then you just don't like WESTERNS. I only wish they had included Eric Braeden being interviewed by and on Tavis Smiley's PBS show on this disc. I loved this movie mate!
