Russell later replaced Costner for the role of Ace Woody in Django Unchained (2012), but Quentin Tarantino excised the part when Russell left the production. See more »

After hearing a lot of bad reports on this movie I was pleasantly surprised when I finally saw it. The acting is good, Kevin Costner's bad guy is great, it's well filmed with a lot of excellent cinematography, combined with absolutely perfect use of the soundtrack from minor audio cues right through to the explosions. This is not a sophisticated movie, but in its genre it is excellent.
