Pony Express Rider
Jimmy D’s father was shot dead in cold blood, and now, he desperately wants to avenge his death. All he knows is the killer headed west – so Jimmy D joins the Pony Express in hopes of crossing paths with the murderer on the run. As he races across plains and desert, through sleepy settlements and frontier towns, Jimmy D carries both the U.S. mail and the memory of his father. A rousing western adventure with a coming-of-age story at it heart, Pony Express Rider is also a genuine look at America’s vibrant past.
This is a typical western where there is a good guy, the bad guy and a few crazy people. You also have the long horn cattle cowboys against the sheepherders, and we mustn’t forget the poor settler against the big rancher. But after Jimmy D’s father is murdered he intends to get justice and in doing so becomes a Pony Express rider.This is not so much a story of revenge as it is a story about doing what is right. The old west was a rugged time and place as this movie demonstrates. But unfortunately some of the content puts it outside the Dove guidelines and it cannot be approved for the family.
