I first watched the Walking Tall movies when I was about 8 years old and I thought both Joe Don Baker and Bo Svenson did a great job, they must have anyway because since watching the movies, I have tried to learn as much about the real Sheriff Buford Pusser as I can. All 3 parts of the movie gave me chills and Buford Pusser was a true hero, I only wish he were alive today and that there were more people like him. I would love to thank him for getting rid of all the crime and being so brave. I am very sorry that his family had to go through such horror and pain. My heart goes out to them. So from a 30 year old fan of Sheriff Pusser and of the 3-part Walking Tall movies and the actors that portrayed him, please do not be negative about these movies and actors, they were only trying to let us know what a wonderful man the real Buford Pusser was and what a great family he had. And to all the young people who may have not heard much about Buford, I suggest you watch the Walking Tall movies…
How can they from Joe Don Baker (as Bufford Pusser in the first sequel) to Bo Svenson (as Bufford Pusser in the second sequel).Why did they do that for.Just Because Bo Svenon look more a like to Bufford Pusser they still should’nt of changed it because the first sequel it was Joe Don Baker as Bufford Pusser and that one of the thing i wanted to see in the second sequel.I would’ve given this movie a 7 out of 10 and i would’ve given it a 1 out of 10 if the story did’nt have anything to do with Bufford Pusser’s life but it did and that why i had given this movie a 3 out 10.I strongly suggest that anyone who is planning on watching this cheese i suggest don’t and watch the first sequel instead.
This sequel to the 1973 picture of the same name but doesn’t match up to the original. Bo Svenson stars this time as the big stick wielding southern Sheriff. The film takes up where the 73 film leaves off. Pusser is already well known around his parts and continues his war against the state line mob. Had this one been made with Joe Don Baker in the lead role it might have been better. Had Bo Svenson been in the original, likewise.At times it drifts to the point that it resembles the adventures of a TV hero and not the exploits of a real person.
