Goofs

Clayton talks about his bad experiences in the Civil War battles of Shiloh and Seven Pines. Shiloh was fought in western Tennessee April 6-7, 1862. Seven Pines was fought in eastern Virginia May 31-June1, 1862. Given that the battles were in different theaters under different commands, it is not possible that he fought in both battles.

If you like Westerns you'll love FORSAKEN
1 March 2016 | by phjscottSee all my reviews

I love Westerns! The Donald and Keifer Sutherland tandem here was irresistible and made this a must watch for me and it did not disappoint.

Here is a heart warming tale about a prodigal son who was lost to the world and comes home 10 years after going off to war. The son haunted by a decade of wayward wandering and misdeeds. The father trying to overcome the bitterness of losing his family and community piece by piece.

Throughout the movie is a pleasant, persistent but not overbearing theme of how God works through his servants to achieve His divine will. Fans of the genre will enjoy all the classic elements that make Westerns great. There is a scene in the church between father and son that had such raw powerful emotion it made me cry tears.

Gentleman Dave Turner, played by Michael Wincott is my new favorite anti-hero.

If you like Westerns you'll love FORSAKEN. Well done!!!
