Hadley, Missouri 1887. Justin Gatewood has recently been released from prison for attempting to kill an old adversary, William Curry. Twenty-five years earlier, Gatewood and his brother were Confederate prisoners-of-war, and the death of Gatewood's brother under the watch of (then) Union Officer Curry has consumed Gatewood and fueled his desire for revenge. Free from jail, Gatewood discovers that Hadley and his world is changed, and that a "new order" of law and prosperity is now the battle cry of the people. His beautiful daughter, Helen has grown his business into a thriving concern and she makes her father promise that he'll forget his past vendetta. Curry has a successful business and willful daughter of his own, and his main concern is for her safety, once it becomes known that Gatewood still wants him dead. As Justin Gatewood methodically hatches his plan for Curry's utter destruction, the entire town is caught in the crossfire, but most tragically, so are the daughters of both ... Written by
I watched this movie through it's entirety but thought of turning it off many times. I think the movie entertained me because I wasn't used to the entire cast of acting to be so terrible and I had nothing else to do this evening so I didn't push the eject button on my DVD player. It was totally hilarious due to that fact. People over emphasized with odd facial expressions, body language and the pitching of the voice. Some spoke slowly like they were reading or didn't do their homework to speak with a confident flow. I actually feel that this is the worst movie I have ever seen and I'm 46 years old. The producer/director should be chased out of Hollywood for wasting people's time and money. I'm sorry but I'm just being real here.
