About the Movie
In 1872, John Henry Clayton (Kiefer Sutherland) retires as a gunfighter and returns to his hometown of Fowler, Wyoming in hope of repairing his relationship with his estranged father, Reverend Clayton (Donald Sutherland). However, he soon learns that the town is in turmoil, as the railroad will be coming through the area and a criminal gang is terrorizing ranchers who refuse to sell their land. John Henry is the only one who can stop them, but his father does not want his son to return to a life of violence.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: An old-school western that is a little too old school for its own good.
Fresh: Father and son team up for a Western in the classic style.
Fresh: Refreshingly and unabashedly sincere in its embrace of Western conventions and archetypes.
Rotten: Fans of the genre - and the cast - may find it a pleasant enough diversion, but given the recent wave of strong frontier dramas, this film feels especially minor.
Beautiful One-of-a Kind Film
Kiefer and Donald Sutherland portray father and son for the first time EVER in this film. But that's not the only reason to see this beautiful film. I am not a fan of Westerns and never have been. The only other western I've ever loved as much as this one has been "Blazing Saddles" by Mel Brooks. This film captures what I believe to be the 'real west' or as I've heard it said, 'the authentic western film.' Stunning photography, moving story, some hilarious moments, great sub-plots, and most outstanding of all, the acting (which looks completely natural and adds to its authenticity) of the Sutherlands, Michael Wincott, Demi Moore, and the remarkable supporting cast. I give this film a 10 out of 10. A MUST SEE.
You can't go wrong with these stellar actors! Good movie!
It’s an Ok rent. Not the best western I’ve seen. A very predictable and played out story.
