Today is the release of Lionsgate’s feature film, Catch The Bullet. This western showcases the harsh reality of living in those days especially if you had a job like Britt MacMasters. A U.S. Marshal that in order to do his job needs to be away from his family for long periods of time. Keep in mind that the only horsepower available in those days were literal horses. This of course could cause a rift in the relationship between the father in son. MacMasters son Chad has built up resentment as he has to hear from everyone how great his father is. All while he is barely able to see him.
For a U.S. Marshall, that fame comes at a huge price. Being that it’s built upon his successful captures of outlaws. This of course creates enemies that will always look to get revenge for themselves or their loved ones. In Catch The Bullet, this comes in the form of an outlaw named Jed Blake. Who while MacMasters is away, kidnaps his son in order to draw him out to kill him. Now MacMasters must go on a mission to save his son and stop the outlaw.
Catch The Bullet is directed by Michael Feifer and written by Jerry Robbins. The cast for the film is composed of Tom Skerritt, Peter Facinelli, Jay Pickett, Gattlin Griffith, Mason McNulty, Cody Jones, and Callder Griffith.
