more good work from Walter Hill
27 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As a director, Hill hardly ever makes a mis-step; just take a look at his credits page. Of course, Duvall dominates this excellent western, but Church more than holds his own in a story about helping those who need help because you know it's the right thing to do. The action sequences are great without being so over the top as to strain credulity. One small detail I enjoyed in Broken Trail was that the main characters were ranchers/wranglers and in the shoot outs, they almost exclusively used carbines. I think I saw them fire one round from a sixgun in the whole film, and I don't remember Duvall even wearing one, at least not most of the time. This is so much closer to a believable West than the usual, "I'm a stockman, but I also happen to be the deadliest pistoleer/gun juggler/knife thrower in the West," stuff we usually get. The hero characters were well developed and the bad guys were absolute scum. This is no Open Range or Lonesome Dove, but it is very much worth watching. Both sides of the western film-making debate may be right. There is a big audience for westerns, but they don't go to the movies much. Either they live in areas where new theatrical releases don't show up right away, so the majority of the audience can't impact opening-weekend numbers, or they're so into the western spirit they can't abide people talking on cell phones and kicking their seatback through the picture. But put a good one on TV (Crossfire Trail, Last Stand at Sabre River) and you set records. Keep 'em coming!
