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
In Christian theology, Seraphim is a type of angel. One could conclude the two main characters are angels that have fallen from grace. They battle each other from the mountain tops (Heaven) to the hot desert (Hell). See more »
After going over the falls, Gideon surfaces with his saddlebags, even though they had been draped over his fur-coated arm and he had to struggle out of the coat when it got snagged on some branches underwater at the bottom of the falls. 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.

I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. It's a hunt movie, in the genre of Jeremiah Johnson or The Searchers type. Not gripping,then isn't supposed to be, but contained enough excitement and adventure to keep me fully engrossed. I thought Pierce Brosnan was excellent, almost unrecognizable with his beard and make up; poles apart from Bond. He really looks and plays his character as the quarry very well indeed. The locations photography, New Mexico and Oregon, are stunning. Liam Neeson never seems to give a bad performance plays his character well as the cold hearted, totally obsessed predator, He is well supported by a bunch of bounty hunters/villains lead by Michael Wincott.
