The most realistic, honest western I've ever seen
6 July 2001 | by (Los Angeles, Ca) – See all my reviews

Unlike the "western saga" with noise and unbelievable actions scenes, this movie is like watching the events as they happen. You are taken back to the time Zane Grey wanted to capture with his pen, and it was well translated in this film. Harris and Madigan bring a reality to a classic tale.
