Movie Info

Boss Spearman, Charley Waite, Mose Harrison and Button freegraze their cattle across the vast prairies of the West, sharing a friendship forged by a steadfast code of honor and living a life unencumbered by civilization. When their wayward herd forces them near the small town of Harmonville, the cowboys encounter a corrupt sheriff and kingpin rancher who govern the territory through fear, tyranny and violence. Boss and Charley find themselves inextricably drawn towards an inevitable showdown, as they are forced to defend the freedom and values of a lifestyle that is all too quickly vanishing. Amidst the turmoil, life suddenly takes an unexpected turn for the loner Charley when he meets the beautiful and warm spirited Sue Barlow, a woman who embraces both his heart and his soul.

Overlong but with a nice sweep, excellent music choices and good performances.

As a Western character study you couldn't do much better, the give and take between Duvall and Costner, the old man and the kid (10 years on), the glue holding the piece, with Bening doing very well as a strong frontier woman. And Gambon is a surprise as the ruthless cattle baron. Well worth your time.

Story: Super boring Final shootout scene? One of the greatest western action set-pieces of all time. Watch for that scene and that scene alone.
