A GREAT change of pace western
30 May 2006 | by revdrcacSee all my reviews

Recent westerns have been most successful and most intriguing when new angles/story lines have been tried. This film was no exception.

Brad Johnson, Wes Studi, Tim Scott and Bill McKinney seem at home in the western genre. Wes Studi especially stands out here as a slightly off the wall Indian with some unique beliefs and mannerisms. Studi has proved himself an accomplished actor, one who has definitely been under-rated. The script was a refreshing change of pace , told thru a flashback from the aged Ned Blessing's journal.

This is one of my favorites from the 1990's. They don't make 'em like that any more .......... but they should! You'll enjoy this one.
