Goofs

Near the beginning of the film the family get into the stagecoach, and sit down facing towards the front. However, when Jon is forced to jump out the carriage, he goes out the right hand door (the same one he climbed in), yet the next shot from the outside shows him coming out of the left side.

20 October 2014 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

wow i want more, i've been waiting along time for a half decent western and what i found was amazing. I had just watched the classic "the outlaw josie wales" a few days before. which is in my opinion the benchmark of a western,

I was not disappointed, the greatest westerns were made by some Spanish guy years ago and with a bit of luck the genre has a new patron in a danish guy. It was like watching josie for the first time and the story is along those lines, wife and child are murdered, man goes for revenge. i loved it, after being let down by soooo many b-grade westerns i was not hopeful about this one, but after it started i was surprised the lead is a Eastwood type character, quiet,sad and tough, makes a change from the usual Hollywood yank hero, loud, brash and over the top. 10 out of 10 because its the best western since old Clint hung up his six shooter, maybe it will inspire that old legend to make one last stand and get back in the saddle.
