1870's America. A Chinese immigrant falsely accused of murdering a white woman is viciously hunted down; he'll have to prove his innocence in a time when people of color had "no legal rights" and could be bought and sold for a profit.
Reminiscent of a 1940s Robert Mitchum film noir, Michael Madsen is the phlegmatic antihero hired to locate the murderer of a mob boss. I have to disagree with one reviewer - I thought the performances of all of the actors, and particularly the principals, were good. If you are a fan of Michael Madsen, you'll like him in this film. Bo Svenson's acting, as always, is top-notch. Svenson has played some delightful villains (and he is one here). I've seen him in many roles over the years, and never has he appeared to be "phoning in" a performance.
Overall, this is not a bad movie; I think perhaps production and editing issues kept it from being as terrific as it could have been, as happens all too often. Still, definitely worth renting.
