Goofs

Jesse Helms stops to interview Seymour Redfield and looks at a pistol sitting on a bureau. Redfield tells Hellms the pistol is a Cold Peacemaker 45 Long Colt cartridge revolver. The pistol is clearly either a Remington New Model Navy .36 caliber or a New Model Army .44 caliber muzzle loading revolver. The Remington revolver preceded the Colt revolver by about ten years.

The movie involves a tried & true western idea & doesn't hold back the grit. One of the better westerns in awhile.
8 January 2014 | by cosmo_tigerSee all my reviews

"Some say the legend of Duke Donovan began to eclipse the man." After Marshall Duke Donovan (Brooks) is thrown in jail as an accomplice in a bank robbery he learns that his former partner is plotting to kill his wife. After getting help he escapes and begins the trail of saving his wife and clearing his name. This movie continues the western tradition of "the other side of the story" that every one is told. Movies like Blackthorn, Young Guns 2 and (the one that did it best) The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance are examples of this. When the entire country seems to know what happened but when someone who was involved tells what they know everything changes. Since the plot of the movie involves a tried and true western idea and because it was R rated and didn't hold back the grit this is one of the better westerns in the last few years. Of course most of the recent westerns were Hallmark Channel westerns but even taking those away this was a good western. Even the bad acting didn't affect the way I felt about it. Overall, one of the better westerns that have come out lately. I give it a B-.
