Storyline

After his in-laws are brutally murdered, Deputy John Cooper is ordered to escort the accused, his life-long mute friend, Martin Lowery, to be hanged. As they make the journey to the gallows, John struggles between his duty as a lawman and the desire to exact revenge on his best friend. Unknown to John, not only is Martin carrying a dark secret that holds many lives in the balance-they are being hunted by a band of ruthless killers who want to make sure the truth stays buried.

very weak, not worth the effort
17 September 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

After reading the other reviews for this film I am of the opinion that the high markers are probably paid studio lackeys as the film I saw was absolutely dire, with wooden acting, lacklustre scripting and plodding predictable directing, one of the few plus points has to be the stunning scenery as this film features some stunning backdrops with great sweeping vistas and dramatic skies and wide open prairies, sadly when the most memorable thing in a film is the part featured behind the actors this has to be a warning sign as to the quality of the movie, all in all a thoroughly uninspiring addition to the western genre which even at the very reasonable price it can be obtained on DVD is best to avoid.
