Good watch. Enjoyed the story. Enjoyed the "western" feel to the production - men that don't say much - but stare and talk with their eyes etc. Great stereotyping. Loved it.

Hard to understand why it doesn't have any life with the casting - film maker seems to have gone out of his way to achieve realism above entertainment but the characters are boring. Full marks though for set design and props.

A slower in pace type of western, but entertaining.

Good cast.

Great movie. Really enjoyed it. Just seeing what life was like back then makes it a worthwhile watch.
