Don't see too many westerns but this is a good one. Nice to see Demi Moore as well. As far as gun fighting goes the younger Sutherland ain't no Clint Eastwood.

The from the critics post is for something completely different.

hey, i liked this movie especially the Sutherlands - good acting and connection. demi moore good too. beautiful scenery. it was better than i thought it would be. would recommend!

You've seen this kind of western a hundred times before and most of them better. The Sutherlands were fine and Moore was okay but the rest was just a smelly pile of road apples.

This film takes some of the many tried and proven plots of the Western—homesteaders being bullied into selling to make way for the railroad; a gunslinger returns to his hometown to put down his guns; and others—and weaves them into an original story. It is full of genuine sentiment: the characters and scenarios are believable. Simply excellent!

The only reason I gave this western one star is for the Donald and Kiefer Sutherland. They are great together. The story had no depth, simply get a gang of bullies with guns together and kill people. I tried to find something I could like about this movie. I'm sorry I could not.

Surprisingly good movie considering I never heard of it until I did a search for Westerns in the library keyword search. Yes, it does use the same formula that all Westerns do but I'm a sucker for those. Redemption from a troubled past. Plus there were enough variations on a theme to make this story seem new.

Very predictable old-fashioned Western, but completely worth it to watch the Sutherland's together (and for the twist ending).

I liked this movie just fine. It reminded me of the short paperback westerns I've read for years. Sometimes less is more.

This movie was done in the classic western style which was great to see. Not the most original storyline, but superb acting, beautiful cinematography and a well-written script. I love the chemistry between Donald and Kiefer Sutherland as father and son.
