Storyline

An ex-cop turned bounty hunter shows up in a small town looking for a man who's jumped bail. However, the real reason he's there is to avenge his old friend, an Indian who lived in the area and was murdered by the local sheriff, who is trying to get the Indians to sell their land cheaply so an oil company can move in and take over the land, which they believe sits on top of large reserves of oil.

Very interesting, worth a look.
9 April 2007 | by See all my reviews

I found the movie to be a nice change of pace from the big budget movies that are out there with a lot less heart.Ginty was pretty good as a bounty hunter/tarnished hero. Many of the actors were fresh-faced new comers, which gave the film some interesting flavor. I especially liked the police officers, particularly a young man named Dannie Whitehouse. He was so real and convincing in his limited role, that I believe he could sell any part he played. I only hope he surfaces again, but this time in a leading role, possibly a pirate or super hero of some kind. My friends would like to start a fan club of some kind for him, you know a grassroots type of thing.Anyway, this is a little movie that would be nice on a rainy night with your girl...just fast-forward through Dan's part or she'll leave you.
