Synopsis


Forsaken
In 1872 Wyoming, a Civil War veteran-turned-gunslinger (Kiefer Sutherland) must make amends with his estranged father (Donald Sutherland), a reverend who deplores his son's embrace of violence, as he tries to protect his hometown from ruthless land-grabbers. Jon Cassar directed this menacing Western, which also stars Demi Moore and Brian Cox. Forsaken received its world premiere at the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival. ~ Daniel Gelb, Rovi

    this is your typical movie where once sort of a bad guy (in a good way) turned good and back to bad (in a good way) to save the day by rescuing an entire town from crooks who wanted to buy everyone's land . if they refused they would be forced to sell. main characters was a father and son relationship that turned sour. then, well, back to good- once everything went well with the entire town who were scared of the bad guys. happy ending.

    I've always been a fan of good westerns having been weaned on John Wayne and later, Clint Eastwood, and this latest foray into this genre is in keeping with the best ! Both Keifer and Donald Sutherland are in top-form.This this felt like a labor of love between this father-son duo ! Both actors brought powerful performances and Demi Moore shined, as well ! Great writing, great action, a wonderful surprising little gem of a movie !

    Another reluctant hero movie in the western genre. It was great to see Donald and Kiefer in a movie together even if at times it was a little slow. This story has been told over a hundred times of a man who has given up his past to come home and seek Redemption only to be forced back into the man he once was by a ruthless land baron. Story was tired but the acting was superb.

    I enjoyed this movie. There are not enough good Westerns around in my opinion but this is a good one. There is nothing unusual about the story but it is well done anyway and the acting of the Sutherlands-father and Son-is enjoyable. There is some bad language from one of the other characters which seems to me to be out of character for the time period.

    Best western I've seen in recent years. Many of the new westerns are nothing but violence for violence's sake. This one had some, but there was a reason for it and it was shown as a measure that should only be used as a last resort. Great acting. Honorable characters. Clear good and evil. Just like a good western should be. Very well done!

    Kiefer and Donald are absolutely fabulous in this western movie. I am used to seeing both actors playing different type characters. However, the plot was somewhat predictable. On the other hand, there was not much more you could do with the plot. I wish there would have been some way Kiefer could have wound up with his childhood love.

    Not what I expected

    This is a western that deals mostly with a father and son's relationship. The son has refrained from violence due to personal reasons. Does not defend anyone or himself against tyrants. That causes a strain on their relationship. Of course close to the end, something happens that changes things.

    I was excited to see some of my favorite actors in this movie. I loved watching westerns when I was growing up. This movie has a great story to be told, the actors preformed well, but, the only thing I really had a problem with is that it moved way too slow.
