Russell Crowe plays a desperado whose accomplices stage an ambush after he is taken into custody by a determined local sheriff in this remake of the 1957 film starring Glenn Ford and Van Heflin. James Mangold directs a script based on the Elmore Leonard short story and penned by Stuart Beattie, Michael Brandt, and Derek Haas.~Jason Buchanan
The bluray and 7.1 uncompressed sound track was state of the art. The 4k is Fanstastic. However it doesn't "blow away" the bluray. The bright scenes are better in 4k. The dark scenes are equal. The DTS-X 7.1 is a little better.
I never cared for modern day westerns, but I must say this was a very well made western. The acting was great. Crowe and Bale were just great. I would highly recommend this move if you are a western fan. You won’t be disappointed.
I love this movie! I love the story! I love the cast! It's one of those movies you hate to see end. Definitely a movie you will watch over and over again & thoroughly enjoy it each time! A+++++++++++++
When I got to the end of this movie I said to myself "dang, that was a good movie!" That doesn't happen often. I can't think of one thing I would change about this. It's a very good story told very well. The cast is all good, and everything looks just right. Well done. This is now on my short list of all-time favorite movies.
