A taut action film, an epic chase and primal battle set in the breathtaking landscape of the West. The civil war has ended but Colonel Morsman Carver (Liam Neeson) is on one final mission: to kill Gideon (Pierce Brosnan) no matter what it takes. Launched by a gunshot and propelled by rage, the relentless pursuit takes them both far from the comforts and codes of civilisation, into the bloodiest recesses of their own soul.
Overlooked Western, with strong physical performances from both Neeson and Brosnan.
Until the closing moments it's never clear why Neeson's character is so intent on revenge, only that he is haunted in his dreams and nothing will stand in his way. Brosnan plays someone who is tired of war and running. Together it makes for a thrilling chase and some wonderful scenic locations.
I felt a bit cheated at the end of this film of having wasted 2 hours of my life. It wasn't that bad, but it was so drawn out when some sharper editing would have made it more watchable. It was a long time getting to the point of why Liam Neeson was hunting down Pierce Brosnan, by which time I had lost interest.
