Goofs

At the start of the movie, when the woman is being used as a shield, the closeup of Sheriff Biggs pistol shows no bullets in the chambers, but after she yells for him to shoot, the next closeup shows one shell, a hollow point, in the cylinder. Hollow points had not been invented at the time. See more »

it's like Tom Sawyer...
20 April 2009 | by sacronSee all my reviews

guys, i put 10 out of ten and can tell why...

first: I don't't like dramas, nothing will make me watch them, even good criticism. but just of curiosity wanted to watch a movie with Kevin Sorbo.

this movie looks a lot like Australian-made series. it is somewhat naive but it has gentleness and truth. when you watch it it reminds old black-and-white movies.

yes, it could be better - but on the other hand - i'm tired of s-o-o much blood, "realistic" camera, computer soundtracks, sex, cursing, etc. when you watch this - it's like reading books of Jack London, Mark Twain.

if you want some shock ('cause you might be some couch potato bored of everything), want some bloody shooting, yelling and another macho cowboys - it's not for you. but if you like old western stories like Tom Sawyer - this IS for you! yes, it could be better - villains could be "badder", drinking former-sheriff could act more like a drunk, but, gosh, this was like a movie of my childhood...

give it a try!
