When Bronco (Jesse James Youngblood) pulls a pistol on Saul (Andrew Simpson) at the table, the first angle shows the gun to be an open framed Colt, but the next angle shows a closed framed Remington pistol. When he unloads the pistol it is the Remington and when he hands it to Kun Hua (Gwendoline Yeo) it a Colt. The magic pistol changes back and forth between Colt and Remington depending on the angles.

Fresh take on the western genre
13 August 2013 | by noreast-appliedSee all my reviews

I felt this was an excellent movie. The sets and locations were authentic and conveyed the sense of the timing of the movie. The photography was particularly creative. The story touched on several issues, race,honor, loyalty, corruption, the aftermath of the civil war, without being overpowering. The characters had depth and sincerity, especially the female lead. Some of their background was conveyed in a very subtle, but effective manner. The setting in California was an interesting wrinkle, but the movie still had the feel of a "western". It makes us think of the evolution of America. All in all a good modern take on the western genre.
