Storyline

Two young Texas cowboys on the cusp of manhood ride into 1940's Mexico in search of experience. What they find is a country as chaotic as it is beautiful, as cruel and unfeeling as it is mysterious, where death is a constant, capricious companion. Written by Richard Foxx <spiritranch@earthlink.net>

Goofs

When the three (Cole, Rawlins, and Blevins) are preparing to cross into Mexico, they stop to view the Rio Grande from an elevated position. The Rio Grande is flowing left to right, which, from any point in Texas facing Mexico, would be the opposite direction of the river's actual flow. See more »

Crazy Credits

In the opening credits, the Columbia Pictures emblem is not the 2000 one. Instead, it is the circa 1949 version with the woman holding the torch. This is what would have been used at the time the story is set. See more »

Passionate drama of life and death.
3 March 2002 | by (Muskogee OK) – See all my reviews

Director Billy Bob Thornton fills the screen with awesome scenery and a hard hitting drama about two young cowboys from San Angelo, Texas meeting up with another young horseman and coming face to face with life altering situations in and out of a Mexican prison. Friendship stays strong to the bitter end. And love proves to be stronger than life itself. Matt Damon, Henry Thomas and Lucas Black are the hard luck cowpokes. Damon falls in love with Penelope Cruz and provides some steamy love scenes. There is more drama than action in this western, but you should find it very entertaining. Damon and Black are the most impressive characters in this well-made movie.
