Trivia

The original editor's cut of the film was over 3 hours and 15 minutes. The original script had a B storyline with a young couple played by Landon Liboiron and Siobhan Williams. Their relationship paralleled that of John Henry Clayton and his lost love Mary Alice Watson. Liboiron played a young gunslinger who ran with the bad guys and glorified the life of a gunslinger, when the protagonist was doing the opposite. The producers decided to just reduce the film to all the scenes that involved the father-son relationship and started adding back all the other scenes that supported that relationship, and left everything else on the floor. An opening action scene that showed John Henry and the gunfight that changed his life was also cut: the only shots that remained are the three haunting images that open the film. See more »

Beautifully Made Western
22 February 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I grew up in the era when the western was king. I really love a great classic western and Forsaken brought me back using classic tropes that many seemed to see as clichés but I welcomed as old friends. The cinematography is gorgeous, the acting is stellar, especially the Sutherlands, Demi Moore and Michael Wincott. At it's heart this movie is a beautiful father and son story, more drama than action flick which is also something I appreciate. As one who has not particularly been drawn to the revisionist western of today, ( zombies? aliens? incredible disgusting violence and nastiness? ) Forsaken was a breath of fresh air.
