Synopsis by Mark Deming
A let's-pretend villain becomes a real-life hero in this action drama. John (Sean Patrick Flanery) is a down-on-his-luck actor who is playing a black-hatted cowboy in an "Old West" show at an Arizona tourist trap. When a gang of violent bikers roars through the town, John is one of the few people willing to stand up to the invaders, and after the motorcycle gang decides to stick around for a while, John and a handful of his fellow cowboys find themselves joining forces with the police to protect the town after many of the locals turn tail and flee. Lone Hero also features Lou Diamond Phillips, Robert Forster, and Mark Metcalf.
