A gunslinger is embroiled in a war with a local drug runner.

Fewer and fewer movies will be being shot on genuine film, because fewer and fewer movies building have film projectors. Unless there is an art house movie theater nearby, any watching of older, or less renowned, films, on actual film, is pretty much impossible. What is the last time that an more aged or obscure film was available at the local multi-theater megaplex? If whoever has a film copy of that older, unknown film, does not think it is lucrative enough to put it about DVD, there is little you can do about it. Soon, the only way to observe films of any kind, will probably be through on-line streaming. According to your point of view, this is either that natural progression of technology, or it's the end of the world.

This was a solid and highly enjoyable take on the spaghetti western by Rodriguez that rightfully put the director on the map and provided star Antonio Banderas the breakthrough he needed in the American marketplace. Though I love his work on the Sin City films, particularly the first, his incredible earlier trilogy will always hold a special place in my cinephilic heart. My recent project of coming to terms with classic Westerns has only further helped me enjoy these more recent contemporary releases.
