A far more interesting and morally complex film than I expected after the first 15 minutes.
Randolph Scott stars as a cowboy come to take revenge on a man who wronged him, a man who is now the kingpin of the town of Sundown. But all the characters reveal more layers than our first introductions lead us to expect, and issues of right and wrong end up as more subjective and complex than we think of in most westerns.
Not quite a great movie there are flaws; weak supporting performances, a misogynistic attitude, some unsuccessful comic relief, some stretching of credulity, etc. But a movie that was much more striking than I had any expectation of.
