Pierce Brosnan is a former Union officer being hunted by a very very mad Confederate soldier (Liam Neeson) in this primal, tight-lipped Western. So long as the momentum keeps up, the film races along in lean, muscular and admirably sparse action film mode. Unfortunately, this old-fashioned tale of Wild West revenge surrenders to some rinky-dink, grade-school symbolism in the final reel. Picturesque, but ultimately shallow. 115 minutes R.
