A really entertaining story about revenge. A drifter and his dog walks into a small town, picks a fight with the town bully and knocks him out. Then the drifter gets run out of town by the sheriff, whose son was the bully the drifter knocked out. Afterwards the bully son catches up to the man and they attack him and leave him for dead. Big mistake.
Ethan Hawke plays Paul, the drifter who is just passing through town trying to stay out of trouble. Its unavoidable and now he's got to go after all of the people who wronged him. John Travolta plays the one legged town sheriff, a man who rules over the town with intimidation and threats. James Ransome plays his son, the big mouth so started everything.
It's a fast and deeply entertaining story. Entire story takes place about a day and a half and there is no fat in the story. Probably one of the best westerns in years.
