Set during the Alaskan gold rush of the late 1800s. In his efforts to gain control of a small mining town, Sean McLennon is buying up every mining claim that becomes available, usually after the deaths of the previous owners at the hands of McLennon's "assistants". One of the miners targeted by McLennon, a half-Indian hunter named "Hudson Saanteek", manages to escape his hired thugs, and comes back into town looking to re-establish his claim and get revenge. McLennon and his men have the advantange of numbers and weapons, but Saanteek has his survival skills, and knowledge of the Alaskan wilderness. Written by

In the beginning of the movie, Sean McClennon (James Caan's character) states that "non-citizens" have no right to claims. Alaska was not even a US territory at the time, so in fact, Sean McClennon had no right to any claims as well. See more »
I really liked this film. James Caan was outstanding and intense, plus there was overall great character development throughout - it's not a simple "Western". Although Christopher Lambert's leading role is controversial, it may be due to character baggage from his other better known roles such as in Highlander. This is my first direct exposure to the actor/producer, and from a fresh perspective his performance seemed fully resonant with the tone and flow of the movie. The settings are beautiful, and even though filmed in Norway, it adequately characterizes the Gold Rush as an Alaskan phenomenon.
