Goofs

When Wyatt and Josephine are riding together, her right leg over the horn of the sidesaddle is obviously a prop. This can be verified after she gets to the bottom of the hill and turns her horse to the right. Her real leg can clearly be seen hanging on the right side of the saddle as she rides away. See more »

Exciting story of a heroic man in the midst of many foes.
20 February 2000 | by See all my reviews

I loved this movie so much I bought it right after seeing it the first time. The acting is incredible in this film. I'm not a huge Kurt Russell fan, but he played his role very well. Among others, I consider this one of Val Kilmer's best performances. Even if your not a Western fan (like me), you'll still at least enjoy this film. Excellent lighting, cinematography and sound design. Intense pacing and story telling. All the classic elements of good guys and bad guys. Great story development and plot buildup. You have to see it at least once.
