Westerns have been making an over-due comeback -- this with Ethan Hawk taking yet another interesting & diverse role as he tends to do, and for this alone it is worth seeing. IMO the remakes of True Grit and The Magnificent Seven were substantial modern installments -- this piece is wrought with action, darkness, & edginess, perhaps containing more of a dramatic presence than Grit or Mag7, and it definitely stands to be put beside these as modern Westerns. This feels similar to some of the Clint Eastwood westerns.

Low key western finds a drifter getting mixed up with a small town, an obnoxious type, and the stalwart marshall who wants him out. Its a bit slow to begin, but it quickly builds up to a terrific showdown in this simple and satisfying revenge western. Ethan Hawke is really good and its one of Travolta's better performances as of late.

Unbelievably terrible writing, acting, and directing. It is puzzling how this movie was ever made. Wish there was a rating of minus 5.
