Movie Info

A man searching for his father's killer learns that the culprit has been standing right there in front of him since the very beginning in this gritty revenge western starring Christian Slater and Donald Sutherland. John Mason and his estranged father have just reconnected for the first time in years when their train comes under attack by a gang of violent bandits. In the chaos, John is badly wounded and his father is killed. Later, while convalescing at a local ranch, John falls for the beautiful Alice (Jill Hennessey). But just as John prepares to lay the past to rest he learns that Alice's brother is the man who shot his father, and vows to seek vengeance. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Dawn Rider

A fairly good western. A hero with a sordid past and the reputation to go with it, a lovely love interest (and a love triangle to boot), and the hero's old friend from childhood who never quite kicked the habit of the old ways. Makes for an entertaining story. Slater was very good in this role.

1208: After only a few days IĆ¢(TM)ve almost forgotten this film. Not sure what to say...I'm going to have to check out the original. It's got John Wayne so perhaps it will be more memorable?

What utter garbage. Stupid plot, flat acting, ridiculous inconsistencies, modern dialogue far removed from period correct, empty characters, the list of bad qualities goes on. The entire production is really lousy. There are giant holes in the story line that get filled with the kind of convenience elements a high school level writer would utilize. Christian Slater came across more like a 10-year old playing cowboy then being a cowboy. I tried really hard to care about any of the characters but they were so thin that there wasn't anything to care about. Phoned in performances from Southerland and Slater were a huge disappointment. Fuck this movie.
