Goofs

At the start of the movie, when the woman is being used as a shield, the closeup of Sheriff Biggs pistol shows no bullets in the chambers, but after she yells for him to shoot, the next closeup shows one shell, a hollow point, in the cylinder. Hollow points had not been invented at the time. See more »

Missed it in the cinema. Just watched it on TV. Excellent movie!!!
12 April 2010 | by (London, United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I nearly didn't watch this movie as I had originally thought that it was going to be 'just another Western' - However it quickly became apparent that this was far from the case, and I am glad to say that I did stay to watch it.

I won't go into the story line - this can be found in the synopsises provided by other reviewers, here on these pages, except to say that, historically, the core characters portrayed the situations of far too many women of those times, and since, both in the States and elsewhere in the world.

The central characters, played by Dominique Swain (Abigail), Jillian Armenante (Lettie), Felicia Day (Blue), Jamie Anne Allmande (Olivia Thibodeaux), and Kevin Sorbo (Sheriff Preston Biggs), are well portrayed and 3-dimensional, with excellent negative foils being provided, particularly by Lance Henriksen (Monte James, gambler and ex-partner of Olivia), and Don Swayze (gun fighter James).

In all, in my opinion, a great storyline, well told, and which evolved with sensitivity as the main characters backgrounds were revealed and come to terms with as the plot moved towards its conclusion.

As already expressed by another reviewer: I thank the entire production team, it was a great movie, and I loved it!
