Hunt Lawton: I haven't had any desire to travel half way around the world... see a country that's half the size of a good ranch in Texas.

Good, old-fashioned western based on actual events
15 September 2003 | by (Reno, Nevada) – See all my reviews

This movie inspired me to do further research. There really was a Johnson County war in Wyoming. A number of events in the film, which I thought had to be fiction because they were so unbelievable, actually did happen although the names of the characters had been changed. The range wars of the West were extremely vicious.

Tom Berenger does a very good job and is very much the hero. The rest of the cast are also very good, particularly Michelle Forbes, Luke Perry, and Christopher Cazenove. Frankly, the scenery steals the picture. The mountains and the surrounding forests and streams are incredible and beautifully shot by the cinematographer.
