An all around good western
11 June 2000 | by shampoojonesSee all my reviews

This western may not stray to far from the norm but it does have a great cast and a good script. Kris Kristofferson is as usual great. So is Scott Wilson (I) who plays a crazed killer who thinks that he is on a mission of God. Mark Moses plays Tom Adams, son of Noble Adams, (K.K.) and does a fine job as the son who learns to believe in his fathers ways as his father learns to count on him. A fine movie made by the people at HBO. If you like westerns then you will like this one.
