This meandering, paint-by-numbers story is nothing more than a tedious dime-novel version of “Charles Atlas Goes West.” A figurative 98-pound weakling learns to ride, hunt and shoot, ultimately finding the Lord and getting the girl.
Aspiring artist Lafayette Riordan, a late 19th-century milquetoast mama’s boy and robber baron’s son, decides to toughen up by becoming a U.S. marshal in the Wild West. Once there, he is torn between Rosa Rodriguez, a young woman struggling to hold onto her family’s ranch in a lawless corner of Oklahoma, and Hannah Wyatt, a courageous missionary he rescues from ruthless outlaws.
