Movie Lovers' Ratings & Reviews:
Based on 13 ratings.
BORN TO BATTLE is a routine Poverty Row western from Reliable Films. The picture quality is acceptable. The movie begins with Tom shooting up the town and generally being an overgrown spoiled brat. But he soon wises up and becomes the good guy. His fight scenes are more clumsy than those of many other cowboy stars. Silent movie cowboy William Desmond has a role. Not a bad movie -- just routine.
ROAMIN' WILD is the better of the two films. The story line is more interesting and the picture quality is pretty good. All the better to see the different countryside, different big rocks and different western town than those I've seen before in so many B-westerns. Silent movie comedian Max Davidson has a nice role.
This disc has my recommendation.
