The Virginian Movie 2000

Post by wildwest » Mon Jan 22, 2018 4:17 pm

Just saw this movie last night and I did not like it.

High points was Dennis Weaver and James Drury were in it. Dennis played a bad guy and James had a small ride on part (not The Virginian). James Drury was 66 when he did this one. He is still alive. It was nice to see those two great cowboys again.

Diane Lane was in it and there was a love interest between Molly (Diane) and the Virginian (Bill Pullman). what I did not like was some characters from the TV series turned outlaw.....horse rustlers. so that put The Virgininan at odds with them. Virginian caught his good friend Steve and hung him and he was also after Trampas.

It was disturbing to ruin the characters of the TV show. did anyone else ever see this movie and what did you think about it??

I saw it on cable. I am just now watching Virginian reruns. I did not really follow it when it was on originally. I liked the original cast, Lee J Cobb, Roberta Shore, Doug McClure, Clu Gullagher, I like James Drury a lot. they changed cast over the years and I did not like most of the changes.

You can pull up The Virginian 2000 on Youtube. but I would not say it was worth your time unless you might be a Virginian fan. it was good to see an older James Drury and Dennis Weaver but like I said the movie was disturbing.

It took some great friendships from the TV show and totally ruined them in the movie. For the Virginian to hang Steve was disturbing and he had a gun duel with Trampas and may have killed him also. I think I was falling asleep during parts of it.
