A quiet and peaceful community in the Dominion of Canada is shaken up by the arrival of a wounded and stinky gun-toting American cowboy, simply known as The Montana Kid, wanted for the alleged killing of seven men. A subsequent clarification reveals that his real name is Sean Rafferty, and he admits to killing, not seven, but eleven men. Things only get worse after Sean gets in the bad books of the local militia, and with armed bounty hunters hot on his trail, challenges the local unarmed blacksmith, Jack Smith, to a duel - wild west style!

The Montana Kid mocks the RCMP numerous times throughout the film. This is ironic, considering Paul Gross (who plays the Montana Kid) was famous for playing Benton Fraser, the RCMP officer on Due South (1994). See more »
During the shoot out scene, stacked firewood can be seen in the background that has been sawn into pieces rather than chopped. Saws were used only for cutting dimensioned wood. See more »
Refreshing original look at a tongue in cheek Western...a tale of the Montana Kid up against Canadina sensibilities.
Has the look and feel of an old fashion western and is wonderfully played by the leads.
Not meant to be a story of particular depth, if you look for what isn't there then you never got it to begin with. Having said that there are scenes which do have depth, and a great feel of honor and, at times, nobility.
I enjoyed this movie for a lot of reasons...not least of which are the performances of Paul Gross and Sienna Guillory.
Excellent Canadian gem!
