An insightful review for a good film. We'll soon see if the 2007 movie-going public will embrace the return of compelling, well-made westerns to the big screen.

In an era of one bad movie after another, it is refreshing someone remembered how to make a movie that TELLS A STORY.
Watching this movie was like reading a great book. Congratulations to all involved.

Yep, it's a good western film. I like westerns so it was nice to see Hollywierd put one out worth watching.
I was disappointed in the film for a couple reasons. First, there was a completly incorrect landscape for the area of Arizona portrayed in the film. We own a hotel in Bisbee and if this film generates interest in our town - Great! What I'm worried about is that people will be looking for Monument Valley when they come here.
The railroad man's name was Butterfield and upon first hearing his name, I thought there was going to be some sliver of real historical facts, albiet few, that might make it into the movie. There is a Butterfield stage stop ghost town not far from Bisbee that could have been associated. I don't know the exact history, but that was my first impression.
The town of Bisbee was set high on a desert plain with cattle grazing as a main industry. This couldn't be further from reality. Bisbee is actually a mining town tucked into a couple of canyons. The real Bisbee is 10x more interesting than that typical old west town portrayed and it would have been during that time as well. In fact, during that time Bisbee would have had a population of roughly 10,000 to 20,000 rough and tumble miners and others, not 250.
Anyway, it was hard for me to put that aside since we live here, but other than that it was pretty good. I just wish Dan Evans would have grew a pair and saved the day.
