In the 1860s, five men have been tracking a sixth across Nevada for more than two weeks. They shoot and wound him, but he gets away. They pursue, led by the dour Carver, who will pay them each $1 a day once he's captured. The hunted is Gideon, resourceful, skilled with a knife. Gideon's flight and Carver's hunt require horses, water, and bullets. The course takes them past lone settlers, a wagon train, a rail crew, settlements, and an Indian philosopher. What is the reason for the hunt; what connects Gideon and Carver? What happened at Seraphim Falls? Written by
Liam Neeson and Pierce Brosnan both said they had the most fun in their career making this film. They both loved westerns as kids, and were thrilled to finally to be in one. See more »
When Gideon rides past the wagon train, the sunlight in his closeups comes from a different direction than the shots of the pioneers. It's especially noticeable when the woman calls out,"God sees your sin!" See more »
Well, we definitely got I'm. I wouldn't say gut shot, but got 'im pretty good.
He didn't even take his rifle. Horse run off though.
It's cleared up some. Why don't we get a move on.

Watched this excellent western on a Sunday morning, not knowing more about the film that it was a western - a man being hunted by another and that there was a grudge from the past between them. I always loved a good western movie, stories are usually kept simple, and so is this one. That however doesn't keep it from being a brilliant movie, beautifully shot and with the right cast. Since i didn't know who was starring, it took me all the way to the end before i realized that the leading part was played by no other than Pierce Brosnan, who once again proves to be a top of the line actor who can play a very wide variety of roles - from James Bond to this. If you ever liked watching a good western this is a must, all the way up there with the other nine best western movies of all times!
