The hatreds and mistrusts of the Civil War days are still with us, so why not 11 years after the bloodiest conflict America has ever seen?
Basically, we have vengeance of brother vs. brother transferred from the old plantation of dirty deeds to the Big Sky Country of Montana just eleven years after the war. There’s a money grubbing gold baron, played by Bruce Davison. Davison plays smarmy sooooooooo well. I’ve seen him in a recurring role as a shyster attorney in the TV series “Close to Home.” His role is small in this film, but pivotal. Meg Foster seemed a waste. She was in tons of TV programs in the 70s and lots of movies in the 80s and 90s. The name and the face are very recognizable, but her part as brothel manager was meager. Everyone else seemed new to me.

Kevin Makely plays Hollis Ransom, an ex Union officer, now a head hunter (he has a bag of scalps; and heads; don’t ask) and he’s a mean SOB. Jenny Curtis plays Rose Gage a tracker who is looking to get enough money to leave the wilds of Montana for the big city life of Chicago. These two are what make the film work. They don’t fall in love, they have a mission and they are there to complete it.
Todd A. Robinson plays Everett Ransom, an ex Confederate officer, killer of Hollis’s family slave (would have been wife), and now just out in the world doing bad things and hating his brother.
The tenderest scene in the film shows Hollis Ransom spending the night with a local whore, played by Brea Bee. Hollis simply asks her to sing a song while he puts his head on her lap. Actually, it’s not the tenderest scene; it’s the only tender scene. Bee has numerous credits on TV and film.
A Decent Modern Version Of An Old West Bounty Hunter/Snowy Mountains Montana Movie

10/18/2018 Definitely worth watching one time, but the storyline and acting could have been much, much better. Enjoy it for what it is and try not to be to critical while you watch. Bon Appetit
For the first ten minutes or so, I kept my remote in hand and stayed with the film. The audio was done right, the visuals were stunning, the mixture of known actors and the unknowns was an okay decision. My biggest problem was the use of cap and ball weapons in 1876. In the image of Hollis Ransom and Rose Gage, Hollis is holding his Civil War revolver (cap and ball) and it looks like the piece is missing that holds the barrel and the trigger together (see the red circle on the image). Rose touts the use of snow shoes and then we see the two of them walking in knee-high snow with no snow shoes. Continuity sucks, but I still enjoyed the film.
One thing than gnawed at me was Rose’s clothing. She is wearing beautiful furs that Ivanka Trump would possibly kill for.
I found the film on Prime.
