Review by anonymous (posted on 20-Apr-2005)

One of the most enjoyable westens yet seen by me. Good old shoot em up, but with a sentimental twist, class actors, good direction and great location shots of open country. In all a well made production. I would expect nothing more from a cast with Kevin Costner, Robert Duval and the georgious Annette Bening. The supporting cast was to say the least terrific. Its great to see a film made in the old style without all the hi tech trimmings of todays film world. Recomended to all good film lovers. Well worth viewing.
