The Jack Bull - A lesson in Justice in the untamed West,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Jack Bull [VHS] (VHS Tape)
During this time period,the West was lacking in justice for the little man or one without money and power in politics. It showed the extent one man is willing to go in order to see justice done. John Cusack is excellent in his role of Merl. I don't recall seeing him play such a serious character in any film. John Goodman plays a just man, one I was sorry that Cusack's character couldn't have met up with sooner.
The formation of the early West was a brutal land, and many men died for what they believed in, whether over land wars, Indian issues or justice. I will recommend this movie to anyone, not just because of the moral issues involved, but because it's a story that needs telling, fiction or not.
