Trivia

Ramsay quit production on the indie drama Jane Got a Gun (2015) prior to the first day of shooting following a three-day standoff with producer-financier Scott Steindorff in March 2013. Ramsey complained about alleged fraudulent behavior of the producer during pre-production, mainly trying to force upon her an impossible schedule at the last minute while denying her final cut. She felt tricked with false promises and left the production therefore. Ramsay was supposed to receive $750,000 for directing the film plus bonuses, her best salary ever, but she preferred to leave the production because of the producers made it impossible to direct the movie the way she had planed. Ramsey was sued for breach of contract in November 2013, but the resulting lawsuit was settled privately in March 2014: The producers said they would no longer be pursuing the acclaimed director for more than $850,000 (£512,000) in reported fees and damages.

Goofs

Near the end of the movie when Jane goes into the town, Lullaby, to collect the posted bounty rewards, she is driving two brown horses who are pulling the cart which we later find out is carrying the body of the top wanted criminal she killed. Her white riding horse, seen at other times in the movie, is tethered to the rear of the cart which one can assume is the horse she will use to ride back with, although it is not saddled. When she returns with her money bags after collecting all the "wanted dead or alive" rewards, she mounts a saddled-up brown horse with something that looks like a bedroll behind the saddle and heads back to her home. When she approaches the covered wagon in which her family is waiting, the unsaddled white horse can be seen in the distance, tethered to the rear of that wagon. See more »

Heck of a Western
11 March 2016 | by See all my reviews

Heck of a Western, I expected it would be good before I viewed it when I saw Joel Edgerton had a major role in the movie

Edgerton can really bring it as a lead or support role. And he didn't disappoint.

But I was extremely impressed with Portman. She has picked some stinker roles in the past however she proved IMO she is no longer just the pretty face and she has honed her craft to be a very good actor.

Blows my mind that IMDb is only giving this movie a rating of 5.9 I am a big fan of westerns and I don't hand out high ratings with a whim or fancy.

Good to see Ewan McGregor in a small role. I thought he nailed his part, as well.
