A female gun slinger enters a quick draw tournament in her home town of Redemption to revenge herself against the outlaw who murdered her father. One of Sam Raimi's lesser known efforts, this is a fun comic-strip style horse opera that's more of a homage than a modern-day western in the mould of something like Unforgiven. It references High Noon, High Plains Drifter and everything in between with good turns from Sharon Stone as the woman with no name, Russell Crowe as a reformed gun slinger and a young Leonardo DeCaprio as the outlaw's upstart son. But this film belongs lock, stock and barrel to Gene Hackman's supremely hissable corrupt landowner who rules "his" town with an iron fist. An unpretentious, unfussy and stylish story of vengeance from the old school.

Crowe is a fallen angel; a preacher who has compromised his faith and Dicaprio is Herod's cocky and charming son. Sharon Stone plays the mysterious female gunslinger who appears in the lawless town on a personal vendetta. Entering the no-holds-barred quick-draw competition where the best gunfighters square off against one another for an …
