    A Western with ambiguous heroes and villains

    Set in the 1800s out West, Ethan Hawke, the new stranger in town, is the reluctant hero and John Travolta, the sheriff, is the reluctant villain. If it weren't for the sheriff's truly evil son, the Hawke and Travolta characters could probably get along. There's also a lonely girl falling for the stranger. So, you get the elements of a classic Western, with shoot outs and vulnerable women chasing strong men. But you also get to look at the emotions of some complex characters playing traditional roles, which makes this Western more interesting than most.

    Throwback to the Spaghetti Westerns of My Youth

    I enjoy Westerns immensely, John Ford to Sergio Leone. Serials to lavish productions. In A Valley of Vengeance is a sort of throwback to those quirky Italian westerns of the 60's and 70's that were all the rage back then. Flawed hero's and villains that were more than just a black hat. I enjoyed this throwback to the movies of my youth and it is a tremendously entertaining little movie. John Travolta is an excellent bad guy and Ethan Hawke a perfectly flawed hero.

    I anticipated this to be a great movie with two great actors like John T and Ethan H but it gave less than desired. Much of the supporting cast only managed to drag the movie down with their poor acting. But, the dog was great! :) Sad what happened to him :(. I could go on but I wont because while it wasn't as good as I expected, some may find that it's worth the price of purchase.

    A good western

    It's a good western and high intensity movie that is worth every minute of its duration. The film is not at all shootings or bloodshed but has enough fighting scenes and does not get stuck or focus much on the dialogue. Ultimately the whole plot is basic and there is no real reason for what happens apart from the fact that someone was in the wrong place at the wrong time.

    Cheaply Made Movie

    They could have done so much with this movie. But I guess they blew their budget on getting Travolta. The acting was good. A couple of great one-liners for western. But the story was thin. I recommend it for a Saturday with nothing to do. Just my two cents.

    I kinda expected a good movie with Travolta, Hawke and even and appearance of Karen Gillian(Dr Who)..but alas this movie fell really short, wooden acting and very bad dialog...but if you have nothing better to do...rent it!

    I liked the characters. I feel John Travolta and Ethan Hawke were excellent. I found the dialogue witty. The story predictable, as well as the violence. But I would watch this movie again. I found it very entertaining.
