Storyline

In a future where society has come full circle and man lives by the code of the guns at his side, a fugitive, a vengeful son, a killer, and a servant stand in a four-way face-off from which only one man can walk away. To the east lies seven boomtowns connected by railroad, and to the west is a Utopian community that cowers in fear of the outside world. Dividing these two areas is an arid stretch of desert known only as "The Badlands." Now, these four gunmen stand facing one another with their fingers on their triggers, their fates won't be known until the gun smoke clears. Written by Jason Buchanan

Spare and Elegant
25 July 2008 | by See all my reviews

It takes place in the future, but that's just a time frame. Of the fact that it's in the future you will only see TWO visual hints. I won't name 'em.

This is a western that harks to old Eastwood 'Fistful of dollars' style but done 21st centurywise. The Directing and camera work is done spare and elegant. You start off thinking it's being done cheap-- but it isn't. The creators have an innate feel and understanding of what the adult 'Western' sought to illuminate.

The focus are the Men and their Pasts, All strangers meeting in the desert. And the Desert as a crucible from which the Truth and Survival is forged.

There are no spoilers here, that would be an insult to the film's creators. . .So have a brew or a glass ready nearby and Watch the movie. And just try to figure out who is Who. The ending WILL surprise you.
