    An absolutely right on target review of one of the most underrated films in cinema history. There is a certain magic about this film, it grabs you from the first act, and never lets go. Coupled with the aforementioned haunting melodies that permeate the film, and the quick-witted banter from the illustrious cast, you can’t help but be wisked away to the bygone days of the gold rush and the cold hard truths of Northwestern frontiersman. One of Bronsons best films, full of dangerous curves and a warm hearted survival undertone. A remake with Kurt Russell in Bronsons role would be EPIC FILM, especially in today’s mediocrity theater experiences. It sort of reminds me of TOMBSTONE, mixed with JAWS, and that is good story telling right there.
