This intriguing western features the elements that make for a successful western film, including a cold-blooded outlaw, murder, kidnapping, a gunfight, and the theme of good versus evil. The story also explores justice, revenge, and redemption.

The ending also feels like it should be tighter. There are some scenes that could possibly be cut and a scene added regarding Victoria’s
