Sarah Jessica Parker,
Nick is a struggling dentist in Canada. A new neighbor moves in, and he discovers that it is Jimmy "The Tulip" Teduski. His wife convinces him to go to Chicago and inform the mob boss who wants Jimmy dead.
John Smith is an amoral gunslinger in the days of Prohibition. On the lam from his latest (unspecified) exploits, he happens upon the town of Jericho, Texas. Actually, calling Jericho a town would be too generous--it has become more like a ghost town, since two warring gangs have 'driven off all the decent folk.' Smith sees this as an opportunity to play both sides off against each other, earning himself a nice piece of change as a hired gun. Despite his strictly avowed mercenary intentions, he finds himself risking his life for his, albeit skewed, sense of honor.... Written by

It's a funny thing. No matter how low you sink there's still a right and wrong. You always end up choosing. You go one way so you can try to live with yourself. You go the other, you'd still be walkin' around, but you're dead and you don't even know it.

I really enjoyed Bruce Willis's character and the supporting cast chosen noting Walken(Hickey)and Kelly(Doyle). They really made the characters interesting to the audience and they deserve much credit for doing such a good job in this older film. I have seen many of Willis's movies and say this one is underrated and unique. In addition, it was well written with many twists to the plot, keeping you on the edge of your seat. If you are an action movie shoot them up fan, like gangster type movies and appreciate the older scenery of the pre 1930's. I would recommend this movie highly. Kudos to those who made this movie as I rate it as one of my all time favorites.
