Uranium is a heavy element and supposedly is in lead lined boxes. The empty lead boxes containing uranium would have been difficult for two men to load into a wagon. Even partly filled with uranium the boxes would have weighed more than the entire group of people could have lifted. See more »
Every condemned man gets a last request. What's yours gonna be?
Well, I wouldn't mind if they'd built that gallows a little higher. I'd prefer it if my neck snapped straight off instead of strangling slow-like. There's no dignity in a death like that.
Ask for a cigar.
Hmm, why's that?
The sheriff brings them in special and hates having to share, even with a dying man.
Never did kind to smoking. Nearly choked me to death the first time I tried.
Death by cigar. Sure beats a noose.

Considering the utter garbage which has come from the SyFi Channel in the last few years, this movie was quite pleasantly surprising.
The plot was reasonably fresh and mostly logical. The actors delivered acceptable performances. The outfits were good. The setting was quite acceptable and looked like the northwestern U.S. CGI, if not great, was at least better than typical SyFi fair. The ending was, of course, predictable, and left unanswered questions.
A nice point was that the mandatory scientist (Jules) was not the typical all-knowledgeable font of information. Although he did make a few statements which included knowledge which did not yet exist in 1890, along with some that were just plain wrong; this role actually made fairly good sense within the situation.
There were a number of questionable items. The female bounty hunter is not something which would be likely in 1890. Many, but not all, of the firearms where very clearly modern. (Does anyone who produces movies ever listen to someone with knowledge in this field?) Finally, the repartee between characters who are opposed to each other before the arrival of the "invaders" begins to strain credulity.
Altogether and unexpectedly, this was a movie worth the watching.
