Hell on the Border follows the western gunslinger vs lawman theme, but beyond that, it was not the typical Cowboy & Indian film, nor the usual Tombstone Arizona Marshal genre. The plot, characters, acting, and historical reference was interesting, and the action was good. Based on the legendary character of Bass Reeves, the first black deputy U.S. Marshal west of the Mississippi River, who was credited with arresting more than 3,000 felons in Arkansas and the Oklahoma Territory, the movie is about the beginning of Bass Reeves' lawman career. The story addresses harsh obstacles and attitudes that Mr. Reeves had to overcome, with ample gunfights throughout.

I got this on sale at Best Buy. I was able to shop around to see if I could find a better price for this item. Best Buy was fair and competitive with there pricing and they were very good with the staffing due to the covic-19 virus going around. Everyone was following the safety guidelines.
