Synopsis:
Arriving in Australia with nothing more than a saddle and his prized six-foot Sharps rifle, American sharpshooter Matthew Quigley thinks he's been hired to kill off wild dogs. But when he realizes instead, that his mission is murder - to "eliminate" the Aborigines from a wealthy cattle baron's land - Quigley refuses and quickly turns from hunter to hunted. Forced to wage a savage war against his former employer, Quigley proves that no one gets the best of a steely-eyed American gunfighter - no one, that is, except the mysterious beauty who rides by his side and captures his heart.

Larger than life - Quigley Down Under review by RL

Spoiler Alert
12/07/2016

This is a lot more than a Western. For a start it's set in the scenic arid Australian outback, where the hero is a stranger to the entire continent. Then it's not just pistol slinging, as he does most of his shooting tactically with a sniper rifle, to great effect. It's actually very charmingly lighthearted, with a little reluctant romance & the larger than life personas of legendary actors like Alan Rickman. It's tough & gritty, with heart-warming humour to suit all. Rickman camps it up as the sarcastic, 'gentlemanly' baddie. Selleck plays the cool, self assured, amicable hero. Laura San Giacomo is great as the goofy, madcap heroin. Capped off by the tremendous music score of Basil Poledouris.
