This John Wayne remake tells the story of a notorious gunfighter, Quirt Evans (Lou Diamond Phillips), who is wounded and seeks shelter with a Quaker family. Attracted to the family's beautiful, loving, and widowed daughter Temperance (Deborah Kara Unger), the hard-bitten gunfighter is transformed from a man with a history of violence into a man of peace. Unfortunately, the leader of the outlaws, Laredo (Luke Perry), won't let his past die.

    2Almost the worst remake ever
    By Blessed1
    The only reason I didn't give it 1 star is because I've seen worse movies and remakes, unfortunately; and at least it's not full of filth and cursing. I still would not recommend watching this at all. I can't even say that they could convince anyone that this is really a western.
    If you think you want to watch it, DON'T. The story line doesn't even stay the same.
    Stick with John Wayne and the original version, you won't be sorry that you did.

    1I love the old
    By rgn
    I love the old, John Wayne version of this movie.
    This new version has nothing to add or improve on the last. The direction in this movie is simplistic and lacks common sense and insight. For instance, in the final scene of confrontation on the town street between gunfighters, our protagonist does nothing when his lady love walks and stands, literally, between himself and the guns of his enemies. No one with any sense or distrust of the other fighter would allow her to endanger herself and him in that way!
    And the script did not establish Quirt's falling for this lady. Chemistry just wasn't there. We never saw the transformation from violence to non-violence. Lou Diamond Phillips was always the same character beginning and end.
    And, risking triviality, the heroines haircut is too modern. No clean, hard-working woman would wear her hair with ringlets hovering by her eyes like that. I kept on wanting to brush them back for her.

    1Not John Wayne
    By steve5150
    Not a bad movie but it is impossible to watch it without comparing Lou Philips to John Wayne. The same thing happened to Jeff Bridges with the remake of True Grit. Both actor come off like mice compared to an elephant. Although both are both talented actors in their own right they fade into nothingness when directly compared with Wayne. The Duke's unseen presence overwhelms both performances. They end up looking silly trying to wear the boots of a giant and a legend.
