"May revenge be just, and the dead rest in peace."

Mountain Man outlaw Jedediah (Todd A. Robinson) asked Mary O'Malley the right question when he asked her how she knew where she was going. Because by any reasonable standard, the viewer can't possibly know how she expected to find the man who killed her husband. Her plan to follow the only clear path through the woods made no sense at all, but for the sake of the story, you had to take it on faith she was moving in the right direction. There's a whole slew of these recent Westerns out there that are just terribly written and acted, but with such stunning scenery that it somewhat makes up for the story. Only somewhat though. And there's also a little of the old bait and switch with the name of Lance Henriksen in the credits for this one, who's fourth billed but only appears for about five minutes in an opening segment. He did the same favor for 2019's "Eminence Hill", though that was a considerably better Western, but not by much. At least the crazy old coot Marrow (Kevin Makely) livens things up a bit near the finale with his cannibal gig. He reminded me a lot of Ray McKinnon in the HBO series "Deadwood" in which his character, Reverend Smith, had a fatal bout of epilepsy, waxing philosophically about all manner of things before he went belly up. At first glance, that's who I thought it was in this picture. Let me, along with just about every other reviewer here, try to ward you off from this picture as it doesn't have a compelling story to tell, and there's no other reason to check it out. Unless you like gorgeous, scenic cinematography.

Justin Lee needs to find a new hobby

Who puts up the money for this garbage? This is the second failure I've seen this week from Justin Lee - the first being another miserable mess Any Bullet Will Do. Does he not know how to write a screenplay or direct his actors? Dumb story that goes nowhere and actors that don't know how to act! Lousy pacing and boring extended scenes that make you yawn. If you have insomnia, this will put you to sleep. Seriously, a 5th grade drama class can come up with a better production! A generous 2/10 for the cinematography.

Funny movie

Is our heroin on purposely shooting objects out of the cannibal villains hand, or are those inexplicable 'near misses' ? I guess the opening speech is a -ready set go- for the western version of 'deathrace' where only one will survive to confront the cannibal villain, oh which one will it be? Can't really hear some of the spoken dialogue, I think the guy playing the cannibal figured this out, so he is largely yelling his lines, LOL, so we definitely hear him. Did our screen writer get some of his inspiration from 'the shining' when he wrote the dialogue for the crazy cannibal? Oh where did the bullet go that hit our heroin dead center in the back? Did our heroin get a dirt smudge on her pretty cheek at some point in her fearless revenge quest? Why did she leave her horse and souvenir play rifle bought at a tourist shop behind? I see black powder pistols being shot, and cartridges being loaded into them, oh woe is me Very pretty Oregon coast footage used in the movie. Acting was ok, cannibal man dialogue was my favorite part. Costuming was quite good. The music (score) was good, but sometimes drowned out the words.
