Not a western, but a drama. And it's not even a good one.
24 July 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

They bill this movie as a western, but it's actually western-lite. About the only thing that's western about this movie is the fact that some people ride horses and six-shooters are used. It's more of a drama, the cover is very misleading. I was expecting some western action and instead was treated to Mountie justice. There are no saloons or general stores or bandits robbing banks. See those buildings on the DVD cover over there? Not even close. The town in question here is actually six tents and a very poorly built church structure. Very misleading.

The movie takes place in Yukon Territory in 1894. A Mountie, Wade Grayling (Walker), comes upon a little girl, Cleora (Martin), trying to shoot at the ropes of a man who has been hung by the neck out of the tree. Once the Mountie has the man down, he takes him and the girl to the makeshift town. There he meets Kleus (Buza), the town's religious figure and his daughter, Amethyst (Paré). Turns out Cleora is Kleus' daughter, too. The Mountie sees that the townsfolk are sick and decides to stay a few days at the fort much to the chagrin of the priest. While he stays there, he breaks up a dog fighting ring and as he stays there longer, some Russian thugs come and the town is all too willing to put up with them. It would appear that they have a deal with them. The Mountie doesn't approve, tries to show his power and things get heated.

The movie is quite boring. There's not a lot of action and when there finally is some action it just appears out of nowhere and for no reason whatsoever. The editing is so poor that you'll wonder what the hell you're watching a particular scene for after such a brutal scene before. It just doesn't make sense and there's no explanation for the scene that preceded it. It's all over the place. So, it's hard to decipher where exactly he's staying, how long he's been there, what the townsfolk people make of all this and just why exactly he decided to make things right in this town now. How about you mosey on along, go get some reinforcements and come back? I get that he's a lawman and wants justice -- but justice and suicide are two different things. Even after getting the holy hell beat out of him, he continues his way of dealing with things.

There's not much dialog and when the Mountie finally does speak... why does the actor deliver the lines in a slow, gruff tone that you can tell is forced and not his actual speaking voice? It's like a very bad Clint Eastwood impression. I enjoyed the bond that the Mountie shared with Amethyst and Cleora and I enjoyed the scenery of the Yukon Territory -- and that's about it. It's a very slow-moving, very predictable disappointment. More reviews at www.soveryterry.com Final Grade: D+
