a very heart-felt love story that won me over despite myself. honestly.. the first five minutes of it let me to thinking i had wasted my money to go out of my way and get this movie. but Naomi Watts stroke all the right notes as a young widow whose husband has just been murdered in cold blood over his land that was once owned by some western gangsters or what not. David Carradine.. well what can i say about the great David Carradine! he plays a doctor who despite his better judgement, removes the bullet from Tim Daly's character after Watt's had saved his life. it slowly revealed to her that he is a cold blooded gunslinger and she's not too sure if she can trust him. but his strength grows.. so does his love for her and her child. and he's willing to do anything to protect them! and at the same time.. her character is struggling because none of her family approves of him living in the same house as her. and by the end is then forced to make a choice between love and her religion. is she really willing to sacrifice never talking to her family again? never stepping inside of a church??
Naomi Watts made this movie for me! Tim Daly was an entertaining and i felt strong performer! and to me this worked because of the love story and not cause of the battles. and it's also a journey of self-discovery for Watt's character! so i definitely say it's worth it to go out of your way to find this movie! it's rather brilliant! and visuals are quite astonishing! gave the feeling that you really were back in the old west or what not.
