Did You Know?

Goofs

When rancher Pete Ferguson is slain, one of his ranch hands is seen fleeing. In the full body shot he is quite portly, but in the shot of him mounting his horse is filmed from the waist down in a (failed) attempt to hide the fact that it is a stuntman mounting the horse in his place. The stuntman is noticeably thinner/more fit and taller. See more »

I'm from Oregon and I still didn't like it.
18 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie starts out weak and then gradually just sort of wanders off.

It has potential, story-wise. A large rancher, Cooper, is pressured by his daughter and the other small ranchers to stop rounding up the wild horses in the area. His lead man has other plans and gets himself and the other Cooper employees deputized so they can frame the small ranchers and confiscate their horses. Cooper finds out about it and confronts his lead man, who kills him and frames Barnum, the "hero." Barnum is the weak link. He seems like the laziest, least intelligent, yet most charming guy in the area. He pushes people's buttons for fun and can't decide whether he's crooked or good. They all work hard and he just rides around seeming guilty of crimes or at least thinking about committing crimes. But chicks dig him. He mostly just appears here and there, acts cocky, irritates someone, and then rides off to rendezvous with a girl. And yet somehow you really just don't care what he does. You might doze off and wake to a scene that seems almost identical to the previous one.

Whatever.
