Jane Hammond has built a life on the rugged western plains with her husband Bill "Ham" Hammond and young daughter. When Ham stumbles home riddled with bullets after a run-in with the relentless John Bishop and his gang, she knows they will not stop until her family is dead. In desperation, Jane turns to Dan Frost, a man from her past, for help. Haunted by old memories, Jane's past meets the present in a heart-stopping battle for survival.
Action Drama Western - This is a violent but slow-moving western with a strong female angle.
Fans of Natalie Portman and Joel Edgerton should be pleased, but
some Ewan McGregor fans may be disappointed by his comparatively
limited screen time. Brutal violence, language, sexual content, and
adult themes make the film not for kids.
PROFANITY: 3 F-words; 5 S-words; 4 GD's; a few others. SEX/NUDITY: Brief sex and rape without nudity. VIOLENCE: Boody shootings. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: Alcohol and tobacco. ACTION: Gunplay, fires, explosions. COMEDY: None.
Roger EbertFull Review Above Average ...it has solid performances, a couple of impressively staged sequences and is more concerned with telling its story than in trying to reinvent or deconstruct the genre. The problem with the film is that it never quite finds that final spark of inspiration that might have made it worth seeing...
Slant MagazineFull Review Average An intimate tale of unhealed wounds trapped inside an unremarkable western, the film is more derivative than disastrous, full of half measures it hasn't the nerve to see through.
