Storyline

As America recovers from the Civil War, one man tries to put the pieces of his life back together but finds himself fighting a new battle on the frontier. Cable is an embittered Confederate soldier who returns from the war to reclaim his Arizona homestead from rebel pioneers who sympathize with the Union war effort. Desperate to rebuild the life he once knew, Cable ultimately joins forces with Vern Kidston, his Union adversary to make a last stand for the one thing worth fighting for -- his family.

Decent western with Selleck
21 January 2002 | by (Solvesborg, Sweden) – See all my reviews

I think this is a decent western. Selleck does definitely suit into the cowboy role with a gun in one hand and a rifle in the other. Interesting to see the two brothers Keith and David Carradine together as members of the Kidston 'clan'.

Nevertheless an interesting script when soldier Paul Cable returns home from the Civil War, just before it ends really, to find out some people have taken what is his. Surprising twist of script in the end which makes it a little bit more entertaining (at times too much small talk and romance) but I never felt anything at all for any of the characters (especially not Haley Joel Osment's or Rachel Duncan's, the two children).

Worth a watch though. Tom Selleck, who also produced it, made an alright appearance.
