Plot Summary

The American West in the 1870s. A European settler, Jon Jensen (Mads Mikkelsen), has just welcomed his wife and son to the country when they are kidnapped and murdered. He takes revenge on the murderers, only to discover that one was the brother of a local land baron, Henry Delarue. Delarue runs the local town with a brutal hand. Now he wants vengeance on the man who killed his brother and the local townspeople are too scared of him to stand up to him. Jon is fighting more than just the local thugs, he is facing the entire town. Written by grantss

Goofs Near the beginning of the film the family get into the stagecoach, and sit down facing towards the front. However, when Jon is forced to jump out the carriage, he goes out the right hand door (the same one he climbed in), yet the next shot from the outside shows him coming out of the left side.

Quotes Peter: Yeah, I was a soldier once, and it taught me a lesson. Don't get into a fight you know you're gonna lose.
