Storyline

Trace Adkins (The Lincoln Lawyer), Ron Perlman (TV's "Sons of Anarchy") and Brendan Penny (Ring Of Fire) star in this gritty and riveting re-imagining of the classic Western saga. Raised by powerful cattle baron Judge Henry (Perlman), South, aka "The Virginian" (Adkins), lives his life as a ranch enforcer with bravery and steely determination. When a big-city writer (Penny) raises questions about the fierce treatment of rustlers, South is quick to defend the brutal realities of the "Code of the West." But as he looks deeper into the latest string of rustling and finds his convictions questioned by a pretty new schoolteacher (Victoria Pratt, Mutant X), South begins to wonder if the Judge had ulterior motives in raising him to a life of bloodshed and violence in this explosive, action-loaded epic on the open range.

Trivia

While the movie description does not portray the time period of the movie itself, most would agree The Virginian was set the late 1800's, and the original book The Virginian was written in 1902. At 1:00:30 in the movie, the character known as "Steve" is shown cutting the barbwire fence at High Lonesome using a pair of Hammerhead Fence Pliers (in close-up at 1:00:30). According to sources cited on ToolGuyTalk.blogspot.com and ToolGuy.com, the Hammerhead Fence Plier was not invented and patented until 1905 by Hubert L. Wright. See more »

Goofs

When Sheriff Broyles gets shot and falls down, you can see that the soles of his boots have tread, and a modern insert of bright yellow rubber. See more »

A rather convincing old style western.
28 January 2015 | by (Madison, Wisconsin, USA) – See all my reviews

The acting was convincing, and the scenery was quite breathtaking. It offered a clear image of wilderness and wide open spaces. This was a realistic portrayal of what life was probably like in this time period of the old west. It was a bit gritty at times, but I am certain the old west was not as "romantic" as some movies and books try to portray it. The rugged old log buildings certainly looked authentic. There was a surprise ending I did not see coming. I use to have a good time predicting sub plots but this one fooled me completely. I can't give too much info here or it will ruin the story for others. Just trust that most fans of western style movies will enjoy this.
