is a sanctimoniously violent western about retribution and forgiveness with obvious Biblical overtones, references and names. Job is one of the few designations that doesn't come up — although one needs his patience to sit through this drivel. As the man who carries the huge grudge, Neeson gives a dull stoic performance. And, as the man with the guilty past, Brosnan forgoes his sleek handsomeness for a mask of pain that he wears like it was a warm blanket. Anjelica Huston turns up later as the Medicine Woman of the Desert, but nothing she has could ever cure this movie's ills.
