Storyline

In 1889, a reclusive gun-for-hire, Cole Brandt, travels the barren Arizona desert bringing wanted fugitives to justice, dead or alive. He drifts from town to town, hunting down and seeking revenge on the men who killed his wife and child five years prior. When his travels take him to the lawless town of Dead River, he signs on to protect The Majestic Saloon, owned by Thomas Morgan and his wife, Sarah. Brandt soon meets a beautiful, innocent prostitute, Cassey May, who works at The Raven, the local brothel and hotel. Travis McCain, the owner of The Raven, is an outlaw who has taken control of Dead River, leaving the residents to live in fear of McCain and his rogue group of men. McCain soon learns about the relationship between Brandt and Cassey May, and threatens Cassey May with her life. Cassey May defies McCain, escaping The Raven, seeking protection with Sarah and Brandt at The Majestic Saloon. Brandt is then faced with the dangerous task of defending Sarah and Cassey May, with no ... Written by Anonymous

Action Packed with Great Acting
25 September 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film was very well done, great acting, lots of action, great story, I love the scenery and that it was filmed in Arizona where much of the old west action actually took place....Great music, directing. Overall the film had a kind of desolate feel to it. If you liked the old Clint Eastwood spaghetti Westerns, then you will probably be very pleased with this film. William Shockley plays a wonderful Villain, while Sheree J. Wilson and the girl playing Cassey May also give solid performances. The Cole Brandt and Hicks actors played well off each other as well. Overall I thought it was just a really good film. The only one person that I felt didn't fit in the movie was Dulce. Few films are made these days that are true westerns, and this film fits the bill. If you want Cowboy's & Aliens this isn't your film, but if you want a good story, characters you can care about, and a movie that beckons back to the days of Wyatt Earp and Tombstone, except a little grittier like the show Deadwood, then this is your movie.
