The film set in 1825. Everyone carries and shoots cap lock (percussion lock) pistols ,rifles and muskets. Although percussion lock was invented about that time,but was not in widespread use until about 1840. Flintlock guns were the weapons of that era. See more »

Pierce Brosnan looks a bit too European (and hairy-chested) to be completely convincing as a Kali-worshipper, but he gives an intrepid performance as an Englishman undercover with the Thugees, a sort of Donnie Brasco of the 1800s. The movie itself has some harrowing moments as we watch the thugs ply their killing trade, and the inevitable one-against- many showdown, coming when Pierce's ruse is revealed, is suitably tense. A lot of the drama, however is rather flat and unmemorable and the movie lags in the middle.
There is a nice period look here, though, similar to that of the Sharpe TV series, and fans of that one might find this an interesting diversion.
