Red Rock, Wyoming, is supposedly 50 miles east of Medicine Bow. Near the end of the film, a deputy announces that he's 'called for backup from Laramie and Rawlins.' Within moments (even allowing for movie time), several police cars show up to chase down 'the man from Texas.' Given Red Rock's supposed location, it would be around 80 miles from Laramie and over 100 miles from Rawlins. So how did those cops get there that fast? See more »
"Red rock west" superbly ends on a train,while Dwight Yoakam's sensational "A thousand miles from nowhere" is heard during the final credits.One should note that the excellent soundtrack features two songs of the late great Johnny Cash and other chestnuts.
What about the movie?It's an excellent entertaining flick.Two tremendous leads :Nicolas Cage ,who always seems overtaken by events,always looking stupefied and Dennis Hopper who does not take his character seriously and deliciously overacts while displaying a lot of humor.All the supporting cast is excellent ,and as absolutely no one can be trusted in this money story,there are enough twists to satisfy the action-packed movie buff.One should notice that ,towards the end ,in the graveyard ,the movie verges on horror.
An excellent entertainment for a hard day's night.
