The Cherokee Kid (1996)

Isaiah Turner (Sinbad) didn't want to be a hero — all he wanted was revenge. Orphaned when both his parents were cruelly murdered by the wealthy and powerful Cyrun Bloomington (James Coburn), the young Isaiah grew up with one aim: to find the man who killed his folks and take him down.

So the Cherokee Kid, as he came to be known, sets out on the trail of his parents' killers, unsure of his way, uncertain how to shoot a gun, and unaware that Bloomington's men are on his track. But with the help of a few friends, he makes along the way — Otter Bob, a man of the wilderness (Burt Reynolds); Juan Cortina, a Mexican rebel (A Martinez); and notorious bank robber Nat Love (Ernie Hudson) — the Cherokee Kid will become the kind of man who can give as good as he gets, and be ready to take when it comes to taking revenge!
