This film makes reference to Blue Duck, a former nemesis of Gus and Call, and even includes a flashback to his capture of Lorena from Lonesome Dove (1989). Wes Studi, who plays Famous Shoes in this film, also appears in the "Lonesome Dove" prequel, Comanche Moon (2008), as Blue Duck's father, Buffalo Hump. See more »

Sorry, this movie abandoned the viewers. Loose ends? How many were there? Too many to count. I watched Lonesome Dove, too, and didn't really have any expectations for this movie, but I'd have to say it wasn't about the thread between movies or characters; how much Garner was like Jones, etc. It was, for me, about the lack of point of view. There are so many threads that do not get drawn together in a good way. Who really is the narrator? Why was Hardin's character in the movie? Why don't we see or learn more about Pea Eye whose close relationship with Call is given to us at the beginning? Why the guy who burns people down? So much time was spent on extraneous characters who perhaps in the book are interesting to the story but in a screen play become burdensome to the main story. I wished for more clarity, more development of the main characters. And, the movie did not really take place on The Street of Laredo.
