For a modern Western movie this is very decent, considering we're talking a TV movie here this is very much above average. I really have a hard time understanding why this movie's rating isn't much higher as 5,7. Sure, this is no 'Unforgiven' or 'The Good, the Bad and the Ugly', but i don't think it pretends to be. This is just a fast-paced, violent action flick, which 'borrows' some elements from famous westerns and well, it works! I've seen this movie more then once, and it caught my full attention each and every time. As mentioned in a lot of these reviews Mickey Rourke is really great here. He's tough, he's mean, and he almost perfectly imitates Clint Eastwood's frown in close-ups. But the character I like most in this movie is Potts, played by Ted Levine. He's so dirty you can almost smell him, and he delivers some very cool lines. If you want to see a fun adventurous western movie i really recommend this one.
