Did You Know?

Trivia:
In the shot with Lee and Annabelle walking together (before he pins her to the wall), there is a pickup-shaped pile of burlap in the background. This was an in-joke in response to the film's heavy use of burlap to cover anachronisms on behalf of the cinematographer, who opted to cover the obvious truck with burlap instead of simply moving it out of the frame.See more »

Gritty, off-beat - worth your time, 16 September 2012
Author: sgroyle from Bangkok, Thailand

Nowadays I reckon we're lucky if we get a great western every decade or so. This doesn't qualify for great, but it is good. If you're expecting "Hollywood" - raise your expectations... this is better.

The action in the movie plays well. With influences of Peckinpah mixed with ("early not quite there yet") John Woo; credit where it's due, it didn't get unreal.

The dialog could have been tweaked better, I reckon, there was ample opportunity through the settings which were done well. The scene in front of the barber shop is an example of where the script could have gone deeper, and pushed this movie into great. Overall I liked the pacing, the arc and the various spread of characters. It didn't get overly deep into the characters, but neither were they shallow - there's an edge to all of them. I thought Montgomery Ford did a fine job.

One thing I really liked about this western? It treats the audience with a bit of respect - allowing me to draw my own conclusions; meeting with my expectations in terms of credibility, there were no "cop outs" in plot. What happened was a logical, if whacky series of events.

If you really like westerns, I don't think you'll be disappointed. I am very surprised by the low rating the movie seems to have - strange; maybe good, hard-boiled westerns are just out of style...
