(2015) Before we start, I have to point out that the author, or maybe it was the director at fault, either way one scene, the most disgusting scene in the movie, was taken out of the Roman Republic era death for men who raped children. Okay on with the movie.
A man kills a member of an “indian” tribe. The man goes to the city, and the “indians” want revenge. In the movie Kurt Russell plays the good sheriff and totally aces it. Patrick Wilson plays the loyal husband that would rather die than live without his wife, again an outstanding performance. In reality of the movie, all were over the top.
This is the standard posse goes after the bad guys movie, with a few twists. unlike most possies this group runs into trouble at every turn. This makes the movie exciting, because it is not what you expect. Of course in the old west, man never knew what to expect. Gone are the days of silly westerns where it is the bad against the good and the good wins. Like a few western movies the last five years, this one rings true to the hardships of men and women.
I rate this movie four out of five stars, the photography, acting, and storyline are great.
