Trivia

It was a two-hour movie in the beginning, but AMC wanted to develop an original series, so they made it longer (from the book "Difficult Men: Behind the Scenes of a Creative Revolution: From The Sopranos and The Wire to Mad Men and Breaking Bad" by Brett Martin). See more »

Goofs

Towards the end of the movie, when Ed "Big Ears" Bywater is threatening to nail Prent's "credentials" to the log, the horse shoe nail in his mouth disappears and reappears depending on the camera angle. See more »

Quotes

Tom Harte: [after killing the man who stole from them, Harte returns to find his uncle teaching the girls English] So I went and got our horses and our money... had to stretch a fella... and you start a finishing school for Chinese girls.

great
26 June 2006 | by sprinsSee all my reviews

Just finished watching part two. Great story. I can not wait to read the book. Both Duvall and Church brought so much to their characters and the story. I really hope that the "great west " was settled by men like these. Men who were not afraid to do the right thing. Men who showed courage, morals, kindness, and stood up to those who would bring harm and injustice to the innocent. . The kind of men that I would consider it an honor to "ride" with. I could not help sharing in the pain and confusion that the girls felt. I feel ashamed as a man to know that we treated innocent women that way and still do. I am glad the story ended as it did. Duvall's character showed that he could be tough as nails but still have a heart when it came to the girls. Church's character showed true grit and also had a soft side that he could not hide. Overall it was a truly great story brought to life by two men who did an excellent job portraying their characters.
