Tall Tale: The Unbelievable Adventure of Pecos Bill

Genre: Action/Adventure, Western, Kids and Family; Starring: Scott Glenn, Patrick Swayze, Catherine O'Hara, Oliver Platt, Nick Stahl; Director: Jeremiah S. Chechik; MPAA Rating: PG

A hoary horse-opera plot gets dusted off for Tall Tale: The Unbelievable Adventure of Pecos Bill, an exceptionally handsome action fable. Acting honors go to Scott Glenn, playing a diabolical gunman who menaces the settlers of Paradise Valley until a plucky farm boy (Nick Stahl) enlists the aid of legendary folk heroes Pecos Bill (Patrick Swayze, looking as if he stepped out of a Remington painting), Paul Bunyan, and John Henry. The exquisitely photographed landscapes pull you out of your living room and into the grandeur of the West. B+
