Kiefer Sutherland was motivated to craft a film that he could do with his father Donald, so he enlisted writer Brad Mirman to write a western story about a father and son, to be played on screen by a father and son. See more »
At the beginning Kiefer Sutherland is chopping down a dead snag, the camera pans to the top of the tree and you can clearly see the tree is dead with no needles on it. When the tree hits the ground, you now see a totally living tree with live green needles right to the top. See more »

Although this movie was done before by different actors, the whole drifter son who returns back in town, where ornery blokes are driving the town people out by using unsavory tactic to take possession of their property and land. Keifer returns to his father's home Donald, filled with a guilt of his past, only to realize that there are those who sometimes will not allow to forget it. I gotta say, the Sutherlands did a decent job on screen as a father and son duo, in which neither out stood the other in neither script or performance. Cox, WIncott and Moore, were also great co stars. In this film again, that has been done before. What moved me was the scene in the church were Keifer breakdowns and confesses his guilt to his father, who walks in on him talking to God, in whom Keifer never really believed in. That part had me little teary eyed. And of course end the retribution is handed down to those who have terrorized the towns people, and we all fill good at the end of the film. Cliché? yes. But a good cliché none the less, that stands the test of time and to see a father son duo do it so well, then I say we need more cliché films to enjoy.
