Solid western
I'm not sure why I put off seeing this western for so long - maybe because it was made for cable, and I thought a cable western couldn't compare to a big screen western. Anyway, I am glad that I finally saw this. Like many modern day westerns, this one has a lot of elements that make it raw and tough. But interestingly, the general tone isn't that. Instead, there is a creepy tone playing in the background for the most part. It's a creepiness that really makes it feel like anything bad could happen at any moment, and it's really effective. Elsewhere, the movie comes across as a professional exercise, ranging from being well acted to having good production values. Are there any flaws? Well, the only real flaw I found was that the script is (mostly) pretty predictable. But at least it's handled in a first class manner that will make it all the same pleasing to western fans.
